Sony Music Masterworks today releases SACKBOY: A BIG ADVENTURE (ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK), an album of music from the new PlayStation® video game featuring the iconic character. Available everywhere now, the album includes score music written primarily by composers Nick Foster, Joe Thwaites and Jay Waters, with additional compositions by Lena Raine, George King, Glen Brown, Brian d’Oliveira, Winifred Phillips and Jim Fowler. Also included within the album are dance-y electro tracks from artists 2 Mello, Opiuo and Tokyo Machine, who contribute an exclusive remix. Sackboy: A Big Adventure is available now for PS5 and PS4.
Iconic PlayStation® hero Sackboy bursts back into breathtaking action with a huge, fun and frantic 3D multiplayer platforming adventure – and a whole new edgy sackitude! The dastardly Vex (a near-mythical being born of chaos and fear, no less) kidnaps Sackboy’s friends and forces them to build his Topsy Turver. This most deadly diabolical device will transform Craftworld from a fantastical land of pure imagination and innocent dreams… into a torrid, barren eyesore of nightmares. Ooh the fiend! But legend tells of a prophecy from deep within the ancient order of the Knitted Knights, Craftworld’s legendary protectors. For only the brave, fearless, chivalrous and, yes, gallant can save the day in an almost too dramatic for words race against time stuffed with danger and peril. So much peril. Set off alone or with your bravest friends on a whirlwind of capers across the snowiest mountains, the leafiest jungles, the wettest underwater realms and the, uh, spaciest of space colonies. Take down Vex. Save the sack-folk. Save the day. It’s time to fulfill your destiny, Sackboy. From woolly wonderkid and hessian hero… rise our Knitted Knight.
