Dying Light 2: Stay Human – Learn more about the unique soundtrack!

In the latest Dying 2 Know More episode, composer Olivier Derivière tells us more about the soundtrack of the upcoming game Dying Light 2: Stay Human. Dying 2 Know is an original web series that delves into the world of Dying Light 2.

Olivier Derivière details a special custom-built instrument creating extraordinary in-game sounds, fashioned from an old bike wheel, a steel rod, several metal wires, and other refuse of the city. The intrument’s strings, which can be plucked or bowed, correspond with specific in-game characters. The “wheel of fate” that rests atop the instrument makes a soft rattle when spun, which can be heard in-game when making major decisions that will affect the story, characters, or world. This instrument was designed by DIY instrumentalist and musician Nicolas Bras, and is named ‘Electric Psaltery’. It evokes the scrappy ingenuity of Villedor’s survivors as if pulled right from the game world itself.

Dying Light 2’s main theme “Run, Jump, Fight”, was revealed just before the latest Dying 2 Know episode. The track’s strings, brass, and drums evoke running, jumping, and fighting, respectively. To truly bring the ambitious Dying Light 2 Stay Human soundtrack to life, Olivier Derivière and Techland collaborated with one of the world’s best orchestras, the London Contemporary Orchestra. Together in Abbey Road Studios, Olivier and the Orchestra recorded the entire soundtrack, creating a musical experience players won’t forget.

Watch the latest Dying 2 Know More episode to learn how the soundtrack for Dying Light 2 Stay Human was created and recorded by icons of the music industry.
