Far Cry New Dawn's post-apocalyptic setting takes the series in bold new directions, and that requires a bold new soundtrack. To create it, Ubisoft turned to two composers, Tyler Bates and John Swihart. Bates, a guitarist, songwriter, and record producer, has worked on films including Deadpool 2, John Wick, and Guardians of the Galaxy, and co-wrote and produced Marilyn Manson's The Pale Emperor and Heaven Upside Down albums, among other achievements. Swihart, meanwhile, is a guitarist and multi-instrumentalist whose musical credits include Napoleon Dynamite, Youth in Revolt, How I Met Your Mother, and Go On.
