Yesterday on Too Long; Didn’t Listen (you know, that podcast you so adore!) Dodge and I were talking about MMO and video game soundtracks, a topic which I quite adore. I wanted to follow the podcast up with a quick post about some places that I’ve found legal ways to obtain these scores:
Free MMO soundtracks:
- EVE Online: Good on CCP for making a bulk of EVE’s synth score available for free mp3 downloads!
- Star Wars: The Old Republic: About half of the game’s original score is available for a free download on the game’s site. The studio did this right before the game launched.
- Anarchy Online vol 2: WARNING — this starts a download from Funcom’s FTP server!
- Anarchy Online: Shadowlands
- Atlantica Online: A sampling of the game’s music
- Dungeons and Dragons Online: A HUGE amount of music from the game, including a 5th anniversary piece
- Global Agenda: Only seven tracks are available, but hey, that’s seven more than you had previously, right? And the Christmas piece rocks.
- Wizard101: They’re short ringtone versions, but still very much worth downloading
- Chronicles of Spellborn: Right side of the page
Amazon MP3 downloads:
- Age of Conan ($9): One of the most acclaimed MMO soundtracks ever
- Pirates of the Burning Sea Volume 1 and Volume 2: Great piratey music for $9 and $10 respectively
- Aion ($9)
- City of Heroes: Going Rogue ($9)
- EverQuest ($8) Note that this is a fan project, not the original, but it’s not that shabby
- Fallen Earth ($9) Love this soundtrack, it really is something different than the norm
- Lineage – Legacy Vol. 2 ($9)
- Lineage 2: Chaotic Chronicle ($10.50)
- Lineage 2: Interlude ($9)
- Lineage 2: Goddess of Destruction ($9)
- Lineage 2: Chaotic Throne ($9)
- Guild Wars: Prophecies ($6)
- Guild Wars: Factions ($10)
- Guild Wars: Nightfall ($10)
- Guild Wars: Eye of the North ($10)
- World of Warcraft ($10, also available on iTunes)
- World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade ($10)
