Cyberpunk 2077 Music Detailed In New Behind The Scenes Look (VIDEO)
While the things that players see when playing a title makes up a large portion of their experience, the auditory aesthetic is equally as important. Music and various other sounds help bring the player into the world emotionally and almost physically at times, allowing them to truly experience everything there is to offer on-screen. Cyberpunk 2077 aims to be a groundbreaking title from top to bottom, giving players a world that they can truly inhabit as their character through not only impressive visuals, but also through incredible sound and music design. Now, a new video has arrived that provides some insight as to how the developers went about bringing the musical score and soundtrack to the world of Cyberpunk 2077.
The most recent Night City Wire gave fans a look at a variety of parts that make up the title, including the musical side of the game. The video reveals that the developers designed over 7 and a half hours of music for the title’s score, featuring different sounds for each mission as well as different sections within the title’s open-world that hold their own identity based on when and where the players might hear them. Films, games, and more within the same vein as the Cyberpunk genre feature a unique personality and style as far as music is concerned, many resonating with the 80’s punk rock attitude. The Cyberpunk 2077 composers decided to mix things up a bit by sending the world a decade into the future musically, with sounds incorporating the 90’s electronic, industrial, and rave scenes into the score.
The use of analog audio for the soundtrack gives it a certain “warmth” and emotion to the synthetic tunes that make up the game’s auditory aesthetic. A recent interview with composers Marcin Przyblowics, P.T. Adamczyk, and Paul Leonard-Morgan sees them explaining their thought process behind the game. They touch on their inspiration coming from various different sources whether it’s from specific quests within the game, the atmosphere of different locales, and more.
As for the various songs that players can listen to on the in-game radio, the team managed to team up with a variety of real-world artists such as Refused, Grimes, Run The Jewels, and more to create unique tracks made specifically for the game. The title will feature over 150 of these unique songs just waiting for players to discover in their time within the game. The game may have been prolonged more than fans were prepared for, but it sounds like it’ll be worth the wait at least as far as the musica; elements of Cyberpunk 2077 are concerned.
Cyberpunk 2077 is slated to release on December 10th for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, and Google Stadia.
