Does Pillars of Eternity sound Infinity Engine enough?

Relax with four soothing minutes of example music.

Don't let Wednesday get on top of you - relax with a few minutes of gentle background music from upcoming fantasy adventure Pillars of Eternity.

It's the work of audio director Justin Bell, whose work is detailed in the latest game update.

"I know a lot of you have been waiting patiently to hear some news about the game's music," he wrote. "Making Pillars of Eternity feel like a modern day Infinity Engine game is important to us, and music plays a big role in achieving that goal."

Has he succeeded? Here's his soothing composition for the area Dyrford Village.

Pillars of Eternity is due out this autumn on PC and Mac.
