Bioware releases Citadel soundtrack for free!
Just when you thought it was safe to come to Save Game, and not be assaulted by Mass Effect news, Bioware had to go and do something totally awesome. AGAIN. I know, we’re just as annoyed as you are. Read on for all the details.
Within minutes of the Citadel trailer being posted on YouTube, fans began asking when the soundtrack would be released. Twitter accounts for composers Sam Hulick, Sascha Dikiciyan, and Cris Velasco became the targets of choice for people seeking answers. But as is often the case in the entertainment industry, composers have very little control over their work once they hand it over to the studio. So it was up to Bioware and EA to decide what to do with the Citadel soundtrack.
Luckily for us, Bioware is a very (bordering on ridiculously) generous company, and they’ve decided to release the entire soundtrack for free. Much like the soundtrack to the Extended Cut DLC, all you need to access the soundtrack is your Origin ID. From this page on the Bioware Social Network, you’ll be able to download a .zip file containing .wav files of the music. I’ve already downloaded and listened to the tracks (for purely journalistic reasons of course) and I can tell you that it seems to be a complete collection. So go ahead and download yourself a copy, and if you feel like it, drop the composers a line on twitter to thank them. I’m sure they’d appreciate it.
