'Aeterna Noctis' Soundtrack Includes 43 Original Compositions

Aeterna Noctis is a 2D-metroidvania game that tells the story of the King of Darkness and the Queen of Light.

They are both cursed to fight each other eternally and even death could not free them from their destiny since they have been granted the gift of immortality. Players will experience this never-ending conflict through 16 challenging levels, each of them with its own flair, facing more than 100 different enemies, defeating more than 20 powerful final bosses (some of them are highlighted in this new trailer) and overcoming all kinds of challenging puzzles.

One of the most important features revealed during the extended gameplay was the leveling system. Aeterna Noctis has a skill tree where the player chooses the upgrades for the King of Darkness through three separate paths: melee combat, survival attributes and magic abilities.

Each one of these ramifications allows a deep degree of specialization but at the same time, are not mutually exclusive. Players are free to upgrade their character as they want.

Sony Interactive Entertainment and Aeternum Game Studios announced the content of  the Aeterna Noctis Original Soundtrack, a collection of 43 tracks composed by Juan Ignacio Teruel Torres.

The soundtrack covers a wide variety of styles and themes and will follow your steps during the whole journey of the King of Darkness to reclaim the throne of Aeterna. The dev team at Aeternum Game Studios has highlighted the eclectic sounds of the soundtrack: from the importance of the piano to powerful bass lines, guitar riffs, and even electronic tunes. Each style will be capital to showcase the variety of levels and enemies present during the game.

Juan Ignacio Teruel has been a member of the studio since the very beginning, thus allowing him to better understand the uniqueness of each scenario to compose themes that truly capture their atmosphere. The soundtrack will be available on more than 300 digital platforms, including Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Youtube Music and Amazon Music. It will also be available soon on PlayStation Store.

Key Features:

  • Experience a metroidvania with a challenging difficulty. Easy to leanr, but hard to master as you gain experience and unlock new skills.
  • Explore the mysterious lands of Aeterna in a non-linear way. You are always the one to choose your next challenge. All the levels are designed to fully exploit the movement skills of the characters, opening multiple ways to overcome each challenge.
  • Enjoy a clean and fluid gameplay designed and polished to achieve a system that responds to 100% of the actions regardless of the speed and conditions in which they are executed.
  • Immerse in a deep and beautiful story. Aeterna Noctis is not just about puzzles and platforms. It is also filled with epic moments and unexpected twists that will captivate even the most experienced of players.

Aeterna Noctis is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X| S, Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam) on December 15, 2021 for $29.99/€29,99.
