Need an ominous soundtrack in your life? Deus Ex: Human Revolution OST coming soon

Deus Ex: Human Revolution Original Soundtrack features 25 captivating compositions from the game’s original score composed by Michael McCann(ReGenesisSplinter Cell: Double AgentIt’s All Gone Pete Tong). Renowned for his ambient cinematic scores and emotional organic soundscapes in film, television and video games, Michael McCann’s original music reflects the dark and beautifully visualized world of Deus Ex: Human Revolution and enhances the game’s unique mix of stealth, action, and role-playing genres. Set during a time of great innovation in neuroprosthetics, but also a time of chaos, conspiracy and a new social divide, the transhumanism-inspired soundtrack for Deus Ex: Human Revolution fuses various musical styles and thematic elements including cybernoir, futuristic renaissance and electrosymphonic ambience.
 

 

Composer Michael McCann: “There were close to 200 pieces of music created for the soundtrack for Deus Ex: Human Revolution and I’ve selected 50 of those cues to create the 25 arrangements on this album. Many of the cues are a mixture of different pieces of music from the game’s soundtrack, including alternate versions that were created for the various advertising trailers for the game. I have chosen these 25 to represent the arc of the game’s story, drawing from the styles and ideas that make up the full soundtrack.”
 

 

“We are thrilled to partner with Sumthing Else Music Works to release theDeus Ex: Human Revolution Original Soundtrack,” said Sebastien Bisch, director of marketing and communications at Eidos-Montreal. “Michael McCann’s poignant music score captures the essence of Deus Ex: Human Revolution beautifully and now fans of the video game will be able to enjoy new arrangements of some of the game’s most emotive music tracks. This is a whole new way for people to be immersed in the Deus Ex: Human Revolution universe.”

Well, after 4 years lurking in the darkest corners of YARS, it's probably about time I updated this profile. I'm Ben, one of the senior editors here, and outside of scribbling on here, editing and finding pwetty pics to put in reviews, I'm studying 'Game Cultures' at uni. That's...that's game development in simpler terms, I don't spend my time analysing pixelated toes to determine whether they're 'art' or not. Anyway, I generally write to either save people money on utter crud or at least make them smile in some wry way with my bitterness and general disdain. If you're not laughing with me, you're laughing at me, and hey, that's progress in my books. :)
