A new Ghost Recon: Wildlands trailer has been released onto Ubisoft’s official YouTube page, and it shows off the variety of music that players are going to be hearing in Ghost Recon: Wildlands as they traverse the wilderness of Bolivia on their mission to dismantle a dangerous drug cartel.
The trailer mainly focuses around musician Alain Johannes, who is a veteran musician and a member of many bands, as well as being a producer for bands such as Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures, and more.
As a producer and veteran musician he’s Ubisoft’s pick for helping Ubisoft to capture the feel and look of rural Bolivia. According to Johannes, the intent of the music is to make it feel more cinematic and intimate.
Interestingly enough, in the new Ghost Recon: Wildlands trailer, Ubisoft reveals that pretty much the entirety of the soundtrack for the game is working off of improvised work from Alain himself.
Most of the time, when companies are developing a game, their chosen composer is given a number of rigid and detailed documents that tell the composer about the game’s themes and tempos. Alain even went to Bolivia itself to get a feel for authentic in-game sounds that players will be hearing when the game releases.
The new Ghost Recon: Wildlands trailer for its music also comes alongside a talk that Ubisoft recently gave about the game being reactive, along with revealing the game’s map. If you want to watch the new trailer for yourself and see how much work and time went into making the soundtrack for the game, you can find the actual video link up near the top of this article.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands is supposed to be releasing on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC on March 7 of this year.
