A junior lieutenant awkwardly sidled in to the entrance. Lucinda made sure to unleash on the bag once more - tap tap cross - before turning to him.
“Sir. We’ve just received a Virgon scout in bay four. They want to report directly to Actual.”
“OBC?” she asked. Tap tap cross.
Stefan’s couriers never wasted time with chain of command. “Tell them I’ll be up in an hour.”
The colonies weren’t on fire yet. Stefan’s scout could wait. She turned back to the bag, shifted her feet, and prepared for another round. Tap, tap, cross, repeat.
One of the (many) things that made the reimagined series of Battlestar Galactica great was the soundtrack. We’d seen this mentioned a lot during the course of Battlestar Galactica Deadlock’s development. When we started development of the game (almost 3 years ago now!) we knew we wanted the music of the game to be fitting of the style of the TV show, whilst catering to the different needs of a dynamic game soundtrack.
We hired the very talented award-winning composer, Ash Gibson Greig , to compose the game’s score. Ash has a lot of experience composing scores for film and TV, and was looking to do some work in games. Working with Ash has been a great decision – we frequently see the game’s soundtrack praised in both critic and user reviews.
In the next free feature update, we’ll be giving more access to the soundtrack as a means to further customise and enhance your battles.
As you progress through a campaign, tracks from the game’s soundtrack will unlock. Then, when starting a skirmish, campaign resource mission, campaign roaming encounter or multiplayer match, you’ll be able to select any music track that has been unlocked. There will also be an option to randomly select a track each battle. The only time you won’t be able to change the music will be during story missions, as the score is designed to suit the mission.
And don’t worry if you’ve already started a campaign when the update hits - loading a saved game will cause all tracks from previous campaign battles to be unlocked and usable.
There is also a handy media player-like interface on the main menu, so you can listen to any unlocked track at any time.
So, that’s a look at the new music features that will be arriving soon with the next free feature update. As we get closer to release of the update, we’ve got some great, often-requested features to talk about… but we’ll leave that until next time.
