Halo 4 Soundtrack Details Announced

You know, I’m a sucker for good video game soundtracks. For years I’ve enjoyed various soundtracks from Final Fantasy, to Mass Effect, and everything in between. The Halo series is no exception, because while many people might not remember the Xbox as having games with great soundtracks on them, Halo was the exception. Everybody remembers that haunting Gregorian-style humming that lead into the perhaps one of the best uses of a string bass in a game I have ever heard.

So, it’s no shock to learn that Microsoft and 343 Industries are releasing Halo 4’s soundtrack. The Halo 4 Original Soundtrack will be available for $13.98 and contain 15 different tracks totaling up to 75 minutes of pure aural bliss. But what if you want more? What if you want the full experience?

Well, if you can’t stand having just the normal version of the soundtrack, be prepared to pony up $75, because that’s what the Halo 4 Special Edition 2-Disc Box Set is going to cost. You get the original soundtrack, but you also get the Halo 4 14-track remix album, featuring a plethora of different electronica producers. Also included will be the “Making of Halo 4 Music” DVD, containing over 70 minutes of footage, and a hardcover book that also features different production and composition notes of composer Neil Davidge, as well as behind-the-scenes photos. Also included will be a 12″ Neil Davidge-signed art print, an exclusive “180g heavy weight 12″ Vinyl Full color Picture Disk of Master Chief and Cortana in a uniquely designed Sleeve bag”, an Xbox 360 t-shirt for your Avatar, and if you’re one of the first 5000 to pre-order, your copy will be individually numbered and personalized by Neil as well.
