Following his recent soundtracks for Mass Effect 3 and Borderlands 2, award-winning composer Cris Velasco (Clive Barker's Jericho, Hellgate: London) returns to the horror genre with a dark original score for Ubisoft's new survival-horror shooter ZombiU.
Cris is a BAFTA nominee and winner of "Best Original Score" at the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences Achievement Awards (God of War trilogy). To immerse players in the zombie apocalypse setting, Cris Velasco composed an action score featuring the raw sounds of detuned toys and instruments, carnival organs, distorted guitars, and ambient textures, contrasted with the intimate emotion of piano and string quintet compositions.
ZombiU puts players in the middle of London circa 2012, where an outbreak has infected the population, destroying their humanity and turning them into mindless monsters preying on the flesh of the few remaining survivors.
ZombiU will be released exclusively for Wii U on November 13, 2012.
