Sucker Punch Productions has confirmed that the Ghost of Tsushima soundtrack will release digitally and physically on July 17, the very same day as the game makes its eagerly-anticipated release on PS4.
Ghost Of Tsushima Soundtrack
Speaking on a post on the PlayStation Blog, the studio revealed that the soundtrack has actually been made up by Ilan Eshkeri and Shigeru “Ume” Umebayashi. You may have already heard the former’s work in movies such as Coriolanus, 47 Ronin, and Stardust, while Umebayashi-san worked on the likes of House of Flying Daggers, True Legend, and The Grandmaster.
Here’s a couple of words from Sucker Punch on the soundtrack:
You may be questioning why we picked to have 2 authors score thegame off, Ghost of Tsushima is BIG. There is a lot of content and we understood we would need a lot of music to fill the world and support the advancement of Jin’s journey from samurai to the Ghost.
Second Of All, when done appropriately, having several voices shaping the score can weave a more fancy and varied musical tapestry for the game’s story and action to sit upon. Ilan and Ume both brought something extremely special to the score that we used to craft the psychological foundation of the whole world: from the story to combat to checking out the island.
Ghost of Tsushima is one of the last significant exclusives for the PS4 along with The Last of Us Part 2 and Marvel’s Iron Male VR.
