Varèse Sarabande to release Revelation Original Soundtrack

Neal Acree’s score to Revelation Online (“TianYu”), the Chinese fantasy MMO by NetEase, is finally seeing a separate release from Varèse Sarabande. Neal Acree, best known for his work on games like World of Warcraft, Overwatch, and Diablo III, brought a heavy Chinese sound into this score to reflect the mythology of the game, written by the bestselling author Jiangnan.

“The score for Revelation called for a rich, cinematic sound but the game’s story and artwork called for a traditional Chinese palette,” says Acree.  “Orchestra blended with traditional Chinese and Japanese instruments was the natural approach and can make for some beautiful and evocative colors.  Each Chinese instrument has its counterpart in the Western orchestra but brings a unique character to the overall sound.”

Revelation – Original Game Soundtrack will be released digitally on April 29, and on CD May 27, 2016.

About the Author

A native and lifelong Texan, I currently work in software education while contributing news, reviews, and interviews to VGMO on the side. 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. Outside of VGMO, I enjoy playing piano, listening to classical music and film scores, and trying to go unnoticed in any stealth RPG I can find.
