The Diofield Chronicle

The DioField Chronicle is fast approaching its release date of September 22, 2022. Ahead of that day, Square Enix released a behind-the-scenes look at the game’s music.

The game features a fully orchestrated soundtrack, and the interview focuses on the game’s composers, Ramin Djawadi and Brandon Campbell.

In the interview, Djawadi and Campbell spoke about how music from a game can stick with a player long after the game ends, and about their process with composing for The DioField Chronicle. They spoke about suiting the composition to the needs of the game’s setting. One thing that Campbell found fun was being given the freedom to write “big orchestral pieces” not tied with raising the drama of a specific scene, but of the whole game’s diversity of moods.

Ramin Djawadi is best known for his work composing for films and television. He composed for series like HBO’s Game of Thrones, and Westworld, and for films like Marvel’s Iron Man and Eternals, Pacific Rim, and The Great Wall. 

Brandon Campbell is a frequent collaborator with Djawadi, and in addition to helping score The DioField Chroncile, co-composed music for Amazon’s New World online RPG. He also worked on the music for Pacific Rim: The Black (the animated Pacific Rim spin-off), Gears of War 4 and Gears 5, and the live-action Warcraft film. In 2021 Campbell won a Daytime Emmy Award for Music Direction and Composition for a Drama Series, thanks to his work on Netflix’s The Letter for the King.

The DioField Chronicles releases on September 22, 2022 on PC, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. A playable demo is available now. Check out Siliconera’s preview of the game for more about how it plays.
