Today is a big day for 343 Industries, thanks to the Halo Infinite campaign now being available to the masses. The more hardcore among us got an extra treat, however, in the form of the game’s soundtrack.
The original score for the Halo Infinite campaign and multiplayer is now available on major streaming platforms. These include Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon Music, along with other services.
If you prefer to own your music, each of the two albums is available for purchase for $9.99.
The campaign soundtrack features 20 tracks, while the multiplayer soundtrack includes 12 tracks. Credits for the campaign soundtrack go to Gareth Coker, Joel Corelitz, and Curtis Schweitzer. Meanwhile, Alex Bhore, Joel Corelitz, and Eternal Time & Space handled the multiplayer soundtrack.
If you prefer a physical release, it will be available in February 2022. You have the choice of color or black vinyls. However, both options are sold out at the time of this writing.
Apart from its campaign and multiplayer suite, Halo is best known for its epic scores over the years. That’s thanks to Martin O’Donnell, who composed the scores for the original Halo trilogy, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo: Reach.
He fell out with then-Halo developer Bungie over unpaid wages. He also said he was fired “without cause.” Bungie settled the lawsuit with O’Donnell, who went on to found game development studio Highwire Games.
The Halo Infinite campaign released earlier today. It holds an 86 on Metacritic at the time of this writing, with reviewers generally enjoying the gameplay and story.
The game’s multiplayer component released on November 15 and is free to play. It is currently in open beta, though 343 Industries didn’t say when the mode would shed the descriptor.
When he’s not writing up news, Williams is taking a walk around the neighborhood with his wife and his dog. Either that, or drinking a cup of hot chocolate. Or both.
