The sequel to one of our favourite games of all time, has once again been developed by the talented team at Vigil Games.
“Darksiders II is an awesome game and one of the most fun and creatively satisfying projects I have scored. I had a blast working with the team at Vigil,” said Jesper Kyd.
“It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Jesper,” said Jeremy Robins, Audio Director at Vigil Games. “He’s an extremely talented composer and an avid gamer, who not only created an amazing soundtrack for Darksiders II, but intuitively knew how to cater each composition to achieve maximum musical impact for players.”
As well as the game soundtrack by Jesper Kyd, the Darksiders II campaign creative score has been composed by renowned composer Giles Lamb.
