Lords Of Shadow 2 Score The Result Of A Very Large Orchestra

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is a big undertaking. Especially in the music department.

A new video has been released highlighting the game's orchestral soundtrack, which was recorded at the legendary Abbey Road studios in London. This footage features Lords of Shadow 2 producer Dave Cox and composer Oscar Araujo. Araujo handled the score for the first game, by the way.

There's plenty of exclusive recording footage, and here's the interesting part: According to Cox, this was the largest orchestra ever used for a video game score. It took several weeks to record, which means this soundtrack should be downright epic . Music is always an integral part of any game experience, and that counts double when the atmosphere is so singularly compelling.

The highly anticipated Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 arrives for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on February 28.
