    I know Steven has a charming personality, but to pull that off...amazing. Music is such an important feature, not only in movies, but also in games. It sets the mood and even at times the pace. So looking forward to see what will be created for AOC. Congratulation on lending such a marvelous and talented composer.

    Music is such a vital part of any epic MMO, I still get chills sometimes when I hear a YouTube Everest Everest music I don't even have to be in the room but it takes you back to the places you remember and brings back those vial memories that we all have about are favorite MMO. I am so happy to have such a great composer added to this game make me even that much more excited to see it and hear it! -Comprehensive guide to Ashes of Creation. -Ashes of Creation Guild.

    Always good to see this caliber of artist joining the team! Music can be just as memorable as a majestic vista and can spark memories long after. I hear sound bytes from EQ all the time, and just recently heard a few midi songs from vanilla and I was rushed with memories long forgotten. I am glad to see that the music should be in good hands!

    Good soundtracks are good.  Hopefully he will be able to be on the team for the long run.

    Finally we know who'll make the music! I'm hoping they continue with the piano being the lead in the music. :smiley:

    I was always a flute and tribal drums man myself.
    Nothing else gives me the same vibes, chills and shudders.
    I do like a lot of his work though.
    Talented guy.

    Im just excited for the bagpipes.

    Never heard a McCreary soundtrack that I didn't like.
    Though Black Sails and Battlestar Galactica are my favorites by far. 

    I love his work!  BSG and Defiance were a couple of my favorites.  I'm very excited that he's going to score Ashes.

  • This is a fantastic choice.  He has done so much great work.  People have mentioned Black Sails and Battlestar Galactica,  He also did a fantastic job in DaVinci's Demons.  Agents of Shield has some great pieces too.  Outlander is also fantastic.  I like so much of his work that it is hard for me to choose a favorite.  I think the DaVinci's demons stuff may be the closest to what we might expect to hear in AoC.
