Bungie are in celebratory mood this week with the release of Destiny 2.0, and the coming of The Taken King next week. This celebration has continued with the announcement that the soundtrack for The Taken King will be released at the same time as the game.
With the announcement, they also had this to say:
“As the World of Destiny continues to evolve, so must the music that brings it to life. The heroic moment when you first grabbed Crota’s sword. The legendary fanfare that heralded the capture of Skolas for the Queen. The dark, regal overtones as Oryx enters our Solar System on a path to revenge. It has been our honor to score your new adventures. We hope you enjoy listening to the Taken King Soundtrack as much as we have enjoyed creating it. May it remind you of your bravest moments in a world imagined for heroes.”
They also revealed an opening sample of the music that you’ll hear when you fire up The Taken King, which is composed by Michael Salvatori, C Paul Johnson, and Skye Lewin. The entire collection will be available from the usual places such as Amazon and iTunes. Bungie also say that a more high-quality version will also be available on the Bungie Store.
Along with music from The Taken King, the cover of the soundtrack also shows that music will be included from The Dark Below, and House of Wolves. The full track listing hasn’t been released or a price, but I’m still sure plenty of fans will be wanting to snap this up as soon as it is available.
