Brazilian composer Pedro Bromfman, perhaps best known for his music form Narcos and Robocop, is providing the score for the Far Cry® 6, the next entry in Ubisoft's critically acclaimed narrative-driven video game series.
For the new entry in the long-running series, Bromfman creates music that is drenched in lush soundscapes, driving percussion, processed organic instruments and a ton of synthesizers. The game takes place in the fictional country of Yara, and the music reflects its surroundings with roots in traditional Latin American and Caribbean music, while being completely free to experiment with contemporary sounds, elements and techniques.
Bromfman brings the listener into the evocative world of Far Cry® 6, marked by expanding synths wrapped around dark-cloaked strings with a pulse that continues to build throughout. His score for Far Cry® 6 has a clear artistic vision, with distinctive, haunting melodies and character themes, fully immersing the listener. He calls it "a journey full of beauty, violence, adrenaline and passion," and it’s hard to disagree with those descriptions once the entirety of the score is taken in.
Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Pedro Bromfman has been writing, playing and producing ‘Music For Images’ for nearly twenty years. A graduate of Berklee College of Music, Pedro has worked as a session musician, music producer and arranger, before his passion for film scores brought him to Los Angeles.
Since moving to California, Pedro has composed scores for MGM’s RoboCop; three seasons of the hugely popular Netflix series Narcos; the EPIX feature documentary Deep Web, narrated by Keanu Reeves; the 6-part series The Story Of Us With Morgan Freeman for Nat Geo; Jessica Sanders’ Sundance hit End Of The Line; the 8-part series Chain Of Command and Alex Winter’s Panama Papers, narrated by Elijah Wood.
Some of his early credits include scores for Tropa de Elite (Elite Squad), winner of the Golden Bear at the 2008 Berlin Film Festival; the HBO feature documentary They Killed Sister Dorothy; March of the Living; Tropa de Elite 2 (Elite Squad: The Enemy Within), the most successful Latin-American film to date; the romantic comedy and Brazilian blockbuster Qualquer Gato Vira-Lata; G-Dog, and the video game Max Payne 3 for Rockstar Games.
Pedro Bromfman has been awarded two Gold Medals for Excellence in Film Music at the Park City Film Music Festival, an ASCAP Award, a Guarani Award for best original score, nominated for two Cinema Brazil Grand Prizes (Brazilian Oscars), a Hollywood Music in Media Award, an ACIE Award and a Premio Contigo!

Set in Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time in the heart of the Caribbean, players will experience the adrenaline rush and chaos of guerrilla combat as they join the revolution to liberate Yaran people from the oppressive rule of dictator Antón Castillo and his teenage son Diego – brought to life by Giancarlo Esposito (The Mandalorian, Breaking Bad) and Anthony Gonzalez (Coco).
As local Yaran and military dropout Dani Rojas, players will be swept up in the guerrilla movement as the brutality of Antón’s rule reaches new heights and the fire of revolution ignites across the country. Players will be able to choose to play Dani as a woman or a man, and will join forces with a colorful cast of characters, including Clara Garcia, the leader of revolutionary group Libertad, or Juan Cortez, a jaded ex-KGB spy and guerrilla master as they fight their way to take down the tyrant.
