With the sequel to Fatshark’s Warhammer: The End Times – Vermintide (that would be Warhammer: Vermintide 2) due out later this year, thoughts turn once again to the soundtrack. It’s kind of a no-brainer, but Jesper Kyd will once again be doing the score for the game. In fact, as a bit of a preview, we have three tracks from Vermintide 2 for you to feast your ears upon.
“Inspired by Norse mythology, Jesper Kyd’s original score for Vermintide 2 explores ancient tribal music and dark magic fantasy elements as well as evolving the raw acoustic soundscape he developed for the first game. Kyd channels his Scandinavian roots, blending Viking and Norse-inspired vocals, ritualistic percussion styles and new custom-made instruments built specifically for Vermintide 2, to create another unique soundtrack experience.”
For those still interested, Kyd’s soundtrack for the first game is still available to download on iTunes. Beta sign-ups for the PlayStation 4 and XBox One versions of Vermintide 2 are also up and running here and here.
