Vinyl Edition of the Battlefield 1 Soundtrack Now Available

Whether you’re basking in end-of-round glory after a multiplayer victory or taking on the thrilling singleplayer War Stories, the soundtrack of Battlefield 1 is there to maximise your experience.

Now, the Battlefield 1 soundtrack is available on vinyl. This deluxe heavyweight vinyl includes 17 amazing Battlefield 1 tracks, a 12” collectible poster, a clear PVC Battlefield jacket, and a download card with 8 bonus digital tracks.

Amazon: The Battlefield 1 Original Soundtrack on Vinyl

The Battlefield 1 soundtrack was composed by Johan Söderqvist and Patrik Andrén in partnership with DICE.

“We are truly happy about releasing a version of the soundtrack on vinyl,” say Söderqvist and Andrén. “It’s the coolest format by far and we hope it will become something of a collector’s item for the dedicated.”

The two composers started out with a strong vision to make a dark and emotional score; to convey the emotional hell and devastation of the war rather than making ”cool” music.

“The war was brutal and we wanted people to feel something and still keep the energy up. Of course we also wanted to pay tribute to the long Battlefield tradition where we use the classic theme in many variations and shapes.”

The Battlefield 1 Original Soundtrack is also available as a digital download:

Here’s what’s coming next for Battlefield 1

Battlefest is over – and it’s been a thrill seeing you tackle community missions, fight for Dog Tags, and chase down DICE developers on the #FridayNightBattlefield servers. You’ve earned tons of XP, cracked open Battlefest Battlepacks, and shown us the true meaning of PTFO.

Battlefest was a blast. But there’s much more around the corner.

Starting this week, you can try out a new Battlefield 1 Custom Game called Line of Sight – a take on Rush where Medic and Scout are the only classes available. With double bullet damage the Scouts are more lethal than ever and as a natural counter to this, Medics will need to make optimal use of their arsenal to balance out the teams.

In December, the new map Giant’s Shadow which will be coming to Battlefield 1 as part of a free* update. Here, you’ll take part in the Battle of the Selle in the cold autumn of 1918, where a massive crashed airship casts its shadow onto the battlefield.

Looking even further into the future, the first Battlefield 1 expansion They Shall Not Pass will arrive in March 2017.

For a two-week head start on They Shall Not Pass and three other expansion packs, consider getting a Battlefield 1 Premium Pass. Apart from the expansion packs, a Premium membership also comes with 14 Superior Battlepacks, priority in server queues, and more.

Expand your Battlefield 1 with Battlefield 1 Premium Pass
