Kirkhope - Kingdoms of Amalur

6 April 2015, 09:51

Richly melodic and the perfect accompaniment to your epic journey.

Fantasy role-playing games are a dime a dozen but Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning brought a new spin on the genre thanks to a team filled with prodigious talent, among them Grant Kirkhope – legendary video game composer. 

Taking inspiration from John Williams, Vaughan Williams and Elgar, Kirkhope’s score encompasses a wide range of areas, terrains and characters, all the while calling back to the Main Theme. 

With a world so large, reminding players of their place in Amalur is pivotal – it’s handy that his score is so consistently brilliant along the way.

Venture through fantastic, mythical worlds with gnome scientists, civilized and nomadic humans, and dark and light elves, all brilliantly accompanied by Kirkhope's epic, richly melodic score.
