Hear Three Tracks From Dead Island's Official Score

Pawel Blaszczak, a composer with credits on Call of Juarez and the first The Witcher, is handling the music for the upcoming Dead Island, whose soundtrack will be released separately in the game's collector's edition. Developer Techland let the Polish-language site Gameplay hear and share three of the cuts, embedded here and below.

Blasczak told Gameplay he built the music to convey themes of sadness and emptiness, though some pieces are, of course, more action-packed. You may read more of his thoughts on his work at the link, which is in Polish, so use Google translation.

    Just a tip: set the video to 480p for better sound quality.

    You've posted surrounded by zombies twice, unless there's a difference between the two.

    CoJ became pretty meh with the sequel and the third one is gearing up to be a flop. The Witcher was a decent game but the sequel has copped a lot of flack for being to console orientated and such. Now with the talk of Dead Island lacking a lot of simple things that help make a good game stand out I wonder if it also end up being crap.

    The common denominator between the lot? Pawel Blaszczak :S

    Coincidence? You be the judge!
