Starcraft II soundtrack available now on iTunes

Official soundtrack debuts today on Apple's music distribution site alongside long-awaited sci-fi RTS.

Starcraft fans have waited over a decade for the game's sequel to hit shelves, and now that its first of three chapters finally has, Blizzard is giving fans something else to buy.

The Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty official soundtrack (OST) is now available for purchase on Apple's iTunes music distribution platform. The album comes with 14 tracks taken from the game and is available either in full ($9.99) or individually at 99 cents per cut.

Now you can Zerg rush to some sweet tunes.

The Starcraft II OST was included in the game's $100 Collector's Edition. For more on the top-tier version of the game, check out GameSpot's unboxing video, embedded below.

The first installment's single-player campaign will focus on the Terran faction but will have the game's full multiplayer component. It will seek to resolve the conflict between Jim Raynor and Kerrigan, which was the crux of the original Starcraft. The second game, Heart of the Swarm, will focus on the Zerg, while the final game, Legacy of the Void, will be devoted to the Protoss. Analysts are already predicting that the title, which uses the new Battle.net, will sell in excess of 6 million copies during this year alone.

This just shows how greedy Blizzard is. They know they will make ton of money but they still have to charge for the soundtrack. Relic released DoW2's soundtrack for free and it was awesome.

One of the reasons I grabbed the CE, great soundtrack. I loved the tracks they had in the Beta and then the bonus content they unlocked on their site before the game shipped.

@panospcm Couldn't agree with you more... Love the Lynyrd Skynyrd covers! Really adds to the atmosphere, and love the fact that you can cycle through the tracks! Don't want to throw out any spoilers to those who haven't played much/at all yet, but there's another nice little "easter egg" in the cantina on the Battlecruiser. Think I killed a good hour and a half last night with that, alone! Lovin' the entire game so far!

Unfortunately the music in Starcraft 2 just doesn't compare to the original in my opinion, the zerg music in SC1 was awesome.

I got my CE today. By far the best CE of any game I've gotten so far. The USB memory pen is awesome! Lights up when u stick in PC.

Loading times are so long on this and the install took forever. I'm so glad it's actual starcraft instead of them trying to force rpg elements like warcraft 3.

Very good music as usual from Bliz. Not gonna lie, I would rather have the cantina juke box music though.

It's good to know that as a soon to be owner of a CE that I get all the same stuff (well, getting more for my troubles would have been nice).

The most impressive music ive heard was the login screen which played out of all my 5 speakers instead of normal PCM stereo recording. Rarely do we see a game that plays music audio recorded in surround sound and its awesome to hear in my room! Im tired of games being in 5.1 but the audio being in 2.1 GO BLIZZ!
