Publisher iam8bit has pressed The Pathless soundtrack on double vinyl, composed by Austin Wintory and featuring artwork by Elaine Lee. Preorders are also open at distributors PixelCrib in Australia, iam8bit Asia and iam8bit Japan.

Developer Giant Squid made its debut in 2016 with the underwater exploration title ABZÛ, also directed by Matt Nava, with music by Wintory and sound design by Steve Green. Recorded at Bias Studios in Washington DC with the Tuvan Alash Ensemble, the music score involved the participation of over one hundred musicians.

In the video "How to Write One Minute of Music," Wintory relates how he took a 60-second boss battle segment from blank page to in-game audio. The digital soundtrack album is available for purchase through Bandcamp, and streaming on Apple Music and Spotify.

The Pathless is available for PlayStation 4 & 5, on Windows through the Epic Game Store, and on Mac and iOS devices. A PC release through Steam is planned for November of 2021.


From the product page:
Along with your eagle, you’ll attempt to dispel a mysterious curse of darkness that is gripping the island, all the while gracefully running like the wind, as you take on corrupted spirits with a bow and arrow at your side. It’s a true ‘flow state experience,’ masterfully tuned by Giant Squid, where your controller movements and the gameplay melt together beautifully with amazingly fluid animation. This is the very first next-generation game from Annapurna Interactive and first physical edition PlayStation 5 game from iam8bit.
