Arrangement album “The Greatest Video Game Music” to get a vinyl release

X5 Music Group is releasing the classical arrangement album The Greatest Video Game Music on vinyl for the first time. It was originally released in 2011 on CD and digital and is performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

It includes music from the games Advent Rising, Angry Birds, Battlefield 2, BioShock, Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy VII, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Fallout 3, Grand Theft Auto IV, Halo 3, The Legend Of Zelda, Mass Effect 2, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Galaxy, Tetris, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, and World Of Warcraft.

The release will be a 2LP, but there is not a lot of information available about the packaging. It seems it will use the same artwork that was on the CD version, though.

It is priced around £20 and is scheduled to release in August, 2019. Price and exact release date varies between different retailers, though. It can be preordered via Amazon UK here.

A Mass Effect Trilogy 4LP set can now be preordered from BioWare

It was teased in a newsletter from BioWare yesterday and now we have it (or at least the preorder)! The soundtracks to Mass Effects 1, 2, and 3 will be getting a 4LP box set release.

The 4 discs will all be 180g and come on a different color each. Disc one will feature the Mass Effect soundtrack on black vinyl, disc two will feature the Mass Effect 2 soundtrack on white vinyl, disc three will feature the Mass Effect 3 soundtrack on red opaque vinyl, and finally disc four will contain bonus tracks from the games on orange translucent vinyl.
The tracklist hasn’t been posted, but due to the length of the soundtracks it must be assumed that each disc only holds a selection of tracks from the full soundtracks.

There are no words on the label working on this (or if this is all BioWare’s own doing).

The soundtrack is expected to release on November 29th, 2016 and can be preordered now on BioWare’s webstore for $100.
