It seems that any new video game of note gets a vinyl soundtrack release these days. SIE Santa Monica’s God of War is no exception. Along with the touching story, beautiful environments, and engaging gameplay, God of War’s soundtrack also appears to have received the game’s Midas Touch, hitting all the right notes at the right times. Composer Bear McCreary is no stranger to fans of series like Battlestar Galactica, Defiance, and The Walking Dead, each of which feature soundtracks made of his compositions. McCreary’s God of War work will be getting pressed onto vinyl as part of a deluxe 2xLP set from the folks at Mondo.

The God of War Original Video Game Soundtrack will be available in two editions: 2xLP on black vinyl and 2xLP on colored vinyl. As this release is still in the pre-order stage and has not yet been pressed, the exact coloring of the 2xLP colored edition is not specified. Both editions can be pre-ordered right now at the Mondo website.

01. God Of War (4:09)
