Default SiN Episodes: Emergence Sountrack Interview!

Along with the Dynamic Difficulty system and Action Based Outcomes, the soundtrack to SiN Episodes: Emergence has been another feature of the game to be met with high anticipation from the community since the release of the gameplay trailer in February. So we are pleased to bring you guys an exclusive interview with Zak Belica, sound master of SiN Episodes, on what to expect from the soundtrack in Emergence, as well inspirations and challenges behind making it.


<blockquote>
Why did you opt for incidental music, rather than a soundtrack that's constantly playing the background, like in the first SiN?


I wanted to take more of a film approach with SiN Episodes, and that meant asking 'Does music belong here?' throughout the game. In some spots, more drama was achieved by –not- having music, and letting the sound design and dialog take center stage. For example, the Druglab environment is alive with activity and unique situations. By concentrating on the sound design, the player is immersed in that environment and feels like they're actually trespassing in an enemy facility.</blockquote>
The interview also brings word that an official soundtrack to the game will appear in online stores such as iTunes and Napster soon, as well as in retail stores at some point in the near future featuring the snazzy cover art above. Read on!

Sounds interesting, really good interview, I actually learnt something new this time instead of the fact regurgitation that normally happens.

And if the Estate Sinclaire theme is back, then it really cannot go wrong.
