Destiny: The Taken King Getting Its Own Soundtrack Release
The soundtrack also comes with music from The Dark Below and House of Wolves.
Bungie will release an official soundtrack for Destiny: The Taken King, which will also include music from The Dark Below and House of Wolves, the developer has announced as part of its Weekly Update.
The Destiny: The Taken King soundtrack launches on September 15, the same day that the expansion arrives. The music was composed by Michael Salvatori, C Paul Johnson, and Skye Lewin. Veteran Destiny composer Marty O'Donnell, who recently settled a lawsuit against Bungie, is not listed as a contributor.
“As the World of Destiny continues to evolve, so must the music that brings it to life," the composers said in a joint statement. "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."
Bungie has also shared an opening sample of the music players are greeted to when they boot up The Taken King. Listen to it here. Pricing for the soundtrack was not announced, but Bungie says it will be available through Amazon and iTunes. A high-quality version with some bonus collectibles will be sold through Bungie's own site. This version is aimed at the "true audiophile," Bungie said.
The Taken King is Destiny's biggest expansion to date. It comes with a long list of new content and features, including the game's biggest-ever raid, King's Fall. For more on The Taken King, check out GameSpot's guide for everything you need to know.
