Dan Romer scores with Far Cry 5

News PlayStation Xbox One

The musical score of a video game is as powerful as the action that unfolds on screen and Ubisoft have shown their appreciation and understanding of this by selecting Dan Romer as the composer for their upcoming Montana romp – Far Cry 5.

The award-winning music producer, songwriter and film composer has a whole host of accolades under his belt – including topping the music charts and being nominated four times for an Oscar – stepping into the digital world of games will see him take on a very different challenge that will place him at the centre of the game’s musical score, including the production of original hymns for the violent cult that is depicted at the centre of Far Cry 5.

Best of luck Dan, we look forward to hearing what you can bring to the awesome medium of video games.
