Joris de Man, The Flight, Niels van der Leest and Jonathan Williams teamed up with the Guerrilla Games Audio Team to create a truly exceptional soundtrack. Opting for a thematic approach, Horizon Zero Dawn has a strong iconic motif, variations of which can be heard throughout the game, for a diverse yet cohesive soundtrack.
The opening piece of music features Julie Elven‘s solo, which interweaves with the game’s main theme. It’s a powerful piece, even more so when considered in context with our protagonist Aloy. From the moment you meet Aloy as a child, Julie Elven’s voice is there to guide her, always there in the background, even as Aloy has to endure the darkest moments of her journey.
When exploring the game’s open world, the intention was for the music to blend in with the environment’s natural background sounds, complementing the ever evolving – but never overbearing – soundscape, adapting to both the regions and their day and night cycles.
Horizon Zero Dawn is available now.
