Far Cry Primal soundtrack by Jason Graves

We’re big fans of listening to video game soundtracks while we work here at Thumbsticks. That’s not to say we don’t listen to other music too – with the singing and the words and all that jazz – but there’s something immensely satisfying about listening to a piece of music that’s specifically designed to take place in the background, usually with the express intent of motivating or moving you in some way.

There have been some great examples of game soundtracks that have seen standalone releases in recent times, from Inon Zur’s Fallout 4 OST and Austin Wintory’s Assassin’s Creed Syndicate soundtrack at the dynamic, action-filled end of the spectrum, through to the Monument Valley OST and Jessica Curry’s outstanding, haunting work on Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture at the slower tempo end of the spectrum. The latest to join this esteemed company is the Far Cry Primal soundtrack, by Jason Graves.

The Far Cry Primal soundtrack is, as the name suggests, a mix of primitive sounds – pounding drums, hooting pipes and wordless, throaty singing – mixed with environmental sounds and advanced composition techniques to produce a brooding, neolithic soundscape. Top tip: listen to the fast-paced combat music when you’re going for a run.
