Ludvig Forssell announced as Death Stranding composer

According to a Tweet by Hideo Kojima today, and a followup confirmation by Forssell himself, Ludvig Forssell will be scoring Kojima’s upcoming Death Stranding, a dark, mysterious open-world RPG starring Norman Reedus and Madds Mikkelsen as the game’s protagonist and antagonist, respectively.

Forssell is most well known as the main composer behind Metal Gear Sold V: The Phantom Pain, which also featured Harry Gregson-Williams for small portions of the score. Forssell’s music can be found on the original TGA trailer of Death Stranding below, mentioned in Kojima’s original Tweet.

About the Author

After graduating with a master's in teaching, I realized that I wasn't quite ready to leave video games and their soundtracks behind. I've been keeping in touch with the video game music world from Texas by working with VGMO and updating my own YouTube cover channel. I love the feeling that comes with the discovery of a brand new soundtrack, and always look forward to the next rekindling of that excitement. Along with teaching and writing, I also enjoy listening to film scores, classical music, and playing pretty much any RPG you can name.

    YES! That’s what I was hoping to hear! From just a few seconds of synth in the teaser I really felt like it was him.
