There are lots of very good things about From Softwares majestic Elden Ring, but one of the very best good things – as is the case with much of the developers games – is its sublime soundtrack. And now publisher Bandai Namco has made the entire thing officially available to listen to across a wide range of music streaming services.
The newly released digital soundtrack runs a total of 67 tracks, variously composed by Tsukasa Saitoh, Shoi Miyazawa, Yuka Kitamura, Yoshimi Kudo, and Tai Tomisawa – many of whom are long-time From Software collaborators, having worked on the likes of the Dark Souls series, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and Bloodborne.
Their cumulative expertise on Elden Ring, though, has created a belter of a soundtrack, and now users of Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music, the iTunes Store, YouTube Music, Tidal, Qobuz, and Deezer can relive their adventures in the Lands Between through the power of sonic reminiscence. Full links can be found here.
The musical highlights are, of course, many, but personal favourites include Elden Rings unexpectedly triumphant opening theme, the discordant beauty of Renellas theme, the ethereal swell of Limgraves theme (which Ive accidentally fallen asleep to, controller in hand, more than Id care to admit), and Mohg, Lord of Bloods theme – which is basically a part of me now, I had to listen to it so many times trying to defeat the prong-waving bugger. Oh, and how could I forget the utterly breathtaking Regal Ancestor Spirits theme? Or Malenias theme? Or the absolutely bonkers Godskin Apostles theme? Okay, fine, its all amazing.
To accompany the soundtracks arrival on music services, Bandai Namco has released a video showcasing some behind-the-scenes footage of the Budapest Film Orchestras Elden Ring recording sessions, which you can see above. Its as mesmerising as these things always are, so if youre listening Bandai Namco, can we have more than three minutes of it, please?
