Deus Ex: Human Revolution Soundtrack to be Released November 15th

Deus Ex: Human RevolutionSquare Enix have teamed up with music label Sumthing Else Music Works to release the original music soundtrack to Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the latest title to come from the Eidos-Montreal studio.

Composed by Michael McCann (ReGenesis, Splinter Cell: Double Agent, It’s All Gone Pete Tong), the Deus Ex: Human Revolution Original Soundtrack features 25 tracks taken from the game’s score and consists of various musical styles that I never even knew existed, such as cybernoir, futuristic renaissance, and electrosymphonic ambience. I’m not even sure some of those are real words if I’m being honest.

Mr McCann had this to say about the album:

“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.”

The CD for Deus Ex: Human Revolution Original Soundtrack is scheduled for a worldwide release on 15th November at various retail outlets, and will also be available for digital download from Something Digital, Amazon MP3, iTunes, and other digital music sites.

I’m quite a fan of video game soundtracks, with perhaps the one for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game being my favourite, and I have to admit I am rather tempted by the Deus Ex: Human Revolution soundtrack. What does everyone else think? Are you considering picking this up? Let us know in the comments below.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is available for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
