, the creators of post-apocalyptic MMO Earthrise
, just reached out to Massively and gave us access to two tracks from the upcoming game's soundtrack. The tracks are titled Flooid
and Shiv Out
, composed by Pavel Benov who we've mentioned in the past
for creating a blend of ambient and industrial music for the game.
Both tracks are electronica, which seems fitting for this sci-fi MMO. When you're creating the music that sets the tone for a futuristic game where the old world is dead and gone, lost to nuclear and biological warfare, something orchestral as heard in a fantasy MMO might not really work. Earthrise
is a game about a cloned society of technocratic elite reborn in the far future -- a time where advanced technology dominates and defines the lives of all of the world's remaining inhabitants -- so going electronic with the game's music was probably the right choice. Give the Flooid and Shiv Out tracks linked above a listen and let us know what you think. If you like these tracks, you might also want to check out Benov's Dystopia Sunrise
