Battle Chasers: Nightwar

Jesper Kyd reunites with Darksiders creator and visionary comic artist Joe Madureira to compose music for Airship Syndicate’s upcoming fantasy role-playing game Battle Chasers: Nightwar. Kyd previously scored the surreal fantasy score for Darksiders II.

“I am thrilled to be working with Joe Mad and his team again!” says Kyd. “When Joe showed me Battle Chasers: Nightwar, I knew I had to be part of this amazing game. It’s full of imaginative art, beautiful animations and of course the great characters from the Battle Chasers comic book series.”

“One of the reasons why I think Joe’s art and my music work so well together is the depth of atmosphere Joe brings to his work,” adds Kyd. “Creating a rich atmosphere is a quality that I very much aspire to as well. Mood and depth are a key part of my music and I love that about Joe’s art.”

Based on Joe Madureira’s late 90’s best-selling fantasy comic book series, Battle Chasers: Nightwar is an RPG inspired by the classic console greats, featuring deep dungeon diving, turn-based combat presented in a classic JRPG format, and tons of secrets, story and randomly-generated replay goodness.

Battle Chasers: Nightwar will be released by THQ Nordic on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Mac in Summer 2017.
