The official score from Survios’ upcoming ship combat VR game, Battlewake (official website), is getting a full official release from composer Jeremy Nathan Tisser.
Battlewake (hands-on preview) hits PC VR headsets and NA PSVR stores tomorrow on September 10th for $29.99, plus a launch discount, with EU PSVR and Quest launches coming soon after. According to a press release, the album will be released a few weeks from now.
The soundtrack includes 14 original tracks specifically composed for the game ranging from classical orchestra music to “heavy metal” tracks. Notably, Tisser has worked with Survios in the past and collaborated with the VR company on their debut VR action game, Raw Data, as well.
Outside of VR, Tisser has scored over 70 projects across gaming, film, and television.
I can’t personally speak to the quality of the soundtrack at the moment since I haven’t had a chance to spend a lot of time with the game just yet, but if it’s of the same quality as Raw Data then there shouldn’t be any reservations with it or the quality of the soundtrack release.
We don’t often see music in VR games celebrated as highly as non-VR games, which is a real shame as it’s an integral part of the experience. Even if it isn’t a music-focused game like Beat Saber, the audio is hugely important.
