Cris Velasco provides the sounds of war for Relic’s upcoming RTS.
Relic Entertainment has announced that award-winning composer Cris Velasco will be providing the original score for Company of Heroes 2, releasing for on June 25th. Velasco previously provided the soundtrack for a number of blockbuster titles, including the God of War and Mass Effect series.
Velasco stated that, “I approached this score from the very beginning as more of a ‘Symphony for the Eastern Front’ rather than a typical game score. The music sets out to convey the horror of war and the determination of the Russian soldiers.”
As Relic Entertainment Audio Director David Renn added, “Cris Velasco’s score perfectly captures the heroism and tragedy that we set out to portray in Company of Heroes 2. Cris worked tirelessly to provide us with rich and compelling music that is unlike any game soundtrack I have ever heard.
“From the depths of the Russian winter to the epic scale of Eastern Front battles, the score supports the game in a truly cinematic way and we couldn’t be happier with the result.”
