Bungie, Game Pressure

In Destiny 2: Beyond Light, Guardians must leave their powers of light behind as they discover there's a dark side that can work to defeat humanity's newest enemy, Eremis. She and her champions are on a mission to use the power of the Darkness to save her people and take revenge on The Traveller on Earth.  Composers Mike Salvatori, Skye Lewin, Josh Mosser and Michael Sechrist say the shift in tone for the music from light to dark was a fascinating creative challenge.

Bungie's latest Desiny 2 expansion, Shadowkeep, brings Guardians back to the Moon, only to discover that it's plagued by terrifying living nightmares, and long-vanquished enemies that need to be conquered again. Composers Mike Salvatori and Skye Lewin told me that not only did they write some of the most terrifying music ever for Destiny, but they blended in subtle hints of sorrow and brash heroic moments as well.

The opportunity to write music for Destiny 2 and its subsequent expansions, including the just-released Forsaken is a dream come true for Pieter Schlosser. He says it was an incredible experience to have access to the themes that have become an iconic part of Destiny and "just go nuts with them!"

Once again the world of the Guardians experiences tragedy with the death of the beloved character Cayde-6 in Destiny's newest expansion, Forsaken, by Bungie. Composer Michael Salvatori says that although the  story of Forsaken is tragic, the possiblities offered for revenge and grief were fertile ideas for him and the rest of the music team.

As Bungie was scaling up the many new worlds players visit in Destiny 2, it became clear very fast that the music team needed a better and faster way of implementing  the hours of music needed to enhance all the experiences players have exploring, in missions and strikes, and in the Crucible.
