The Destiny Beta sorta consumed people while it was open. It wasn’t just a cool game to play, it was aesthetically stunning – visually and aurally. While we can’t give you more gameplay before launch, at least we can remind you of how awesome it sounded while playing.
The score, written by Marty O’Donnell, will probably be just as iconic as that for Halo. It’s really impressive and will make those who like soundtracks (I’m looking at you, Umar) very happy. Here is a version of the entire soundtrack on YouTube:
Be aware, this isn’t an official rip of the soundtrack, so Bungie might have it taken down. In the meantime, we can all enjoy being transported to all the various locations via sound instead of gameplay. The game is only a few short weeks away from launch – here’s hoping that this helps to tide you all over until then.
Do you think this soundtrack embodies the game? Does listening to it bring back specific memories from your time in the Beta, or are you not such an audio person? I love certain game soundtracks, but they have to be particularly fantastic. I’m very impressed with the Destiny music thus far, although I’m curious to hear it when the game is competed and launched. Other favorite soundtracks include the one for Nier and for Transistor. Which games do you think had the best soundtracks, or does none of this really matter for your gameplay experience?
