Following in the critically acclaimed Resistance 2′s footsteps, Resistance 3 will take on the same composer for its musical score as its predecessor. Film composer Boris Salchow is at the helm to craft a darker more cinematic Resistance soundtrack. Resistance 3 is set four years after Resistance 2 with the dishonorably discharged Sentinel Joseph Capelli giving up his fight against the Chimeran. Now hiding with other survivors, including his wife and son. However, when Dr. Fyodor Malikov arrives with a plan to defeat the Chimeran attack, you must travel the roads from Oklahoma to New York City. Here is where Boris describes how he’s going to present players with an impressive experience.
Boris Salchow, Composer: “In RESISTANCE 3 human civilization as such is gone. People flock together in small groups, trying to survive as long as possible. Not even a military organization is left. The soundtrack reflects this – instead of military elements, we find some very intimate sounding compositions where I use piano, woodwinds, a boy soprano and somber string arrangements. For this setting, it was crucial to record the score live since the RESISTANCE 3 score describes the emotions of the survivors. Going to London and recording this music with such incredible A-list musicians at this historical venue was the perfect match for the game, and it was an incredible honor for me personally. I am very thankful that Insomniac made this happen.”
Resistance 3 will launch exclusively on Playstation 3 September 6th, 2011.
