Dragon Age II Soundtrack Releasing in Phases

BioWare has assembled a musical super-team for the Dragon Age II soundtrack, collaborating with Grammy Awards’ Best New Artist nominee Florence + The Machine, acclaimed video game composer Inon Zur, and award-winning music engineer/producer Jack Joseph Puig (he’s worked with bands like U2, The Rolling Stones, No Doubt and Green Day) to accentuate the game’s dramatic storyline and epic action with a wide range of music styles ranging from “ethereal and mystical to bombastic and lyrical.”

If you managed to pre-order the ‘Dragon Age II BioWare Signature Edition’, you’ll be getting the full soundtrack for free. But if you missed the boat on the Signature Edition, you’ll have to buy the soundtrack in stages. Beginning on the game’s launch date of March 8th, the first part of the soundtrack, consisting of 12 tracks, will be released on all major digital music services for $3.99. After that, two more track packs will be released on April 12th and May 10th, respectively.

Use the player embedded above to sample two songs from the initial track pack: “Hawke Family Theme” and “Qunari on the Rise.” “Hawke Family Theme” is a particularly beautiful composition, I might add.

Dragon Age II Soundtrack Part One will include these tracks:

· Dragon Age II Main Theme
· Hawke Family Theme
· Qunari On The Rise
· Templars
· Love Scene
· Arishok
· Tavern Music
· Viscount
· Mages
· Fenris Theme
· Kirkwall Nights
· Rogue Heart
