Whilst it doesn’t yet seem like there was a great deal discussed at yesterday’s The Last Of Us press day in LA, at least the music score is now confirmed.
Naughty Dog’s upcoming PS3 exclusive zombie title will feature the work of Oscar-winning Gustavo Santaolalla, famous for his work on Babel and Brokeback Mountain.
The game’s creative director, Neil Druckmann, said Santaolalla is “awesome”, before playing the title theme to the assembled press.
“With this music we’re trying to get emotion. We’re not going for horror,” he explained.
“He picks and chooses what he works on; he could work on all these big movies,” he continued.
“We showed him the game, walked him through the whole story and what we’re trying to do, and he said ‘I want to be a part of this’.”
“There’s going to be horrific things happening in this game, but that’s not the focus of it.”
“The monsters aren’t the focus of it,” he concluded, “it’s the relationship between Joel and Ellie.”
