Rise of the Tomb Raider goes gold, gets composer
Rise of the Tomb Raider has gone gold, which is rather handy considering its impeding release date of 10th November.
“We are pleased to confirm that gamers will be able to get their hands on Rise of the Tomb Raider very soon”, said Crystal Dynamics studio lead Darrell Gallagher. “The entire team challenged themselves to improve on the last game that millions of fans enjoyed so much, and we believe we have created a worthy sequel to Tomb Raider 2013.”
“With the game development now complete we are excited to share this incredible next chapter in Lara’s journey as she continues her growth into the ultimate action adventure icon, and accepts her destiny to become the Tomb Raider.”
This week has also seen the announcement of Rise of the Tomb Raider‘s composer, Bobby Tahouri. Tahouri has worked on Game of Thrones, Iron Man, and Despicable Me 2.
“It’s been an honour working on such a storied franchise,” comments Tahouri. “Lara is someone who embodies an indomitable spirit, and crafting music to accompany her on her journey has been a fantastic experience.”
What should prove to be an exciting feature of Rise of the Tomb Raider‘s soundtrack is the procedurally generated stealth encounters. Utilising a middleware system licensed by Intelligent Music Systems, LLC, the system will analyse Tahouri’s compositions and then create new arrangements based upon it. In theory this means that during those stealth sections that you won’t hear the same music at the same moments on each playthrough of the game.
