Elden Ring was one of the biggest video game releases of the year, if not the biggest, absolutely dominating in sales and word of mouth for months following its initial release. From its design to its gameplay, everything was tailor-made over multiple years to create a truly unforgettable experience. One of the most carefully-crafted aspects of the game was its sweeping orchestral soundtrack, all 67 tracks of which have been released on streaming platforms over the weekend.

The Elden Ring soundtrack can be streamed on most major services, including Apple Music, Amazon Music, Spotify, Tidal and YouTube Music. The digital album can also be purchased and downloaded on Amazon Music and iTunes. Pre-orders are also open for a collection of vinyl prints of the soundtrack on Bandai Namco’s official store page, with release expected in November.

In a post on the official PlayStation blog, composer and sound designer Tsukasa Saito spoke about the process that went into the creation of the soundtrack.

“For much of production, the process starts with a brief provided by the director. The brief describes the mood and imagery desired for the piece, including information about a character’s background, or the location/situation envisioned for battle music. We refer to this text, concept designs and in-game screenshots, allowing us to expand on the original vision and build out the track. Once the track is finished, it’s submitted to the director for feedback. Through multiple retakes we can then take our ideas further, refining the composition and adjusting until its complete. We also recorded with a full orchestra and singers for Elden Ring’s score. The orchestrator and performers did an absolutely wonderful job.”
