IGN.com caught up with Halo 4 composer Neil Davidge to discuss the direction that the soundtrack would be taking since original composer Marty O’Donnell was no longer attached. Within the interview were several samples of the upcoming soundtrack as well as samples from the remix album, which will be hitting stores the same day as the OST (Oct. 22nd). You can hear the music below.
Describing his thoughts on the importance of music in Halo, O’Donnell stated, “One of the main characters in the games has been the soundtrack itself. That was a pretty daunting thing for me – coming onto a game where the music had such a central role. It put a lot of pressure on me.”
Halo 4 is scheduled for release on Nov. 6th.
