The fantastic soundtrack for No Man’s Sky is now available for pre-order on most credible online music services. Titled “No Man’s Sky: Music for an Infinite Universe”, the soundtrack will feature over 2 hours of atmospheric and glorious space-inspired tracks that will be heard in the game. Pre-order patrons will have instant access to one of the tracks called ‘Supermoon’.
As a sign of goodwill, the band who worked on the soundtrack, 65daysofstatic has released Red Parallax for anyone to stream on their soundcloud account. What’s most interesting about the soundtrack is that it will not be exactly the same in game. This is because, much like the game, the soundtrack will be randomly generated through computer algorithms by taking samples from the 10 songs and 6 soundscapes to create a melody.
In any case, while the soundtrack is set for release on August 5th, if fans purchase the physical copy, they will also receive two-disc album with the cover made by the talented Casper Newbolt.
No Man’s Sky releases 4 days afterwards for PlayStation 4 and PC on the 9th of August. While the soundtrack won’t exactly curb the insatiable desire to play the game, it’s a gorgeous addition to any video game music enthusiast’s music library. The soundtrack sounds amazing, I highly recommend listening to Red Parallax and just dream about the possibilities.
