In what is a big coup for the series, Dan Romer, the award-winning film composer has been announced as the composer for Far Cry 5, Ubisoft have revealed.

Mr Romer is famous for his work on Beasts of the Southern Wild and Beasts of No Nation, and for producing the Grammy-winning single, “Say Something,” and worldwide hit, “Treat You Better,”.

The soundtrack composed by Dan will aim to transport players into fictional Hope County, Montana, where fanatical doomsday cult Project at Eden’s Gate has taken over. Utilising many Americana instruments, including banjos, fiddles, dobros and more, Romer’s score will fluctuate as players explore the dynamic world and come head-to-head with cultists. Each of the regions will have specific character-centric music that ties into the motives of the Father and the Heralds.

He will also pen original hymns that will be on the Far Cry 5 music score. These will reflect the inspirations of the leadership and members of the cult while also hiding more sinister messages toward the Resistance. Each of these hymns will mix into the existing music that players experience as they explore the world or engage in combat.
