Beyond: Two Souls, with Assassin's Creed 3 composer Lorne Balfe at the helm. Balfe and Zimmer collaborate frequently, including on films such as Inception and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. Beyond creator David Cage confirmed the music news at Gamescom, adding that the soundtrack is two hours of full orchestral music.
"We believe that with the addition of Ellen Page, Willem Dafoe, and now Hans Zimmer with the soundtrack – we were really looking for the best, most talented people out there to create the emotion in Beyond, and we have a beautiful soundtrack in the game," Cage said.
During that panel, Cage revealed multiplayer for Beyond, including a free app that turns touchscreen devices into controllers, intended to make the AAA game less intimidating to casual players.
