The release date for the DioField Chronicle is nearing, according to Square Enix, which took a peek behind the scenes of the game.
The game has a fully orchestrated soundtrack, and the interview spotlights the game's composers, Ramin Djawadi and Brandon Campbell.
Djawadi and Campbell discussed how music from a game can last long after the game ends, as well as their process of composing for The DioField Chronicle. They discussed how to tailor the text to the moods of the game. Campbell found it interesting to be given the freedom to compose "big orchestral pieces" that aren't tied to a specific scene, but to the whole game's many moods.
Ramin Djawadi is well-known for his work composing for films and television. He has worked on HBO's Game of Thrones and Westworld, as well as for films such as Marvel's Iron Man and Eternals, Pacific Rim, and The Great Wall.
Brandon Campbell is a frequent collaborator with Djawadi, and he co-produced the music for Amazon's New World online RPG Pacific Rim: The Black, Gears of War 4, and the live-action Warcraft film in 2021.
The DioField Chronicles will be released on PC, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on September 22, 2022. A playable demo is now available. Check out Siliconera's demo of the game to see how it plays.
