Halo 3 ODST Soundtrack Out Next Week

Halo3 ODST Soundtrack Out Next Week

The Halo 3 ODST soundtrack will be out next week, to coincide with the release of the game. The soundtrack contains new music composed by Martin O’Donnell and Michael Salvatori. According to O’Donnell:

“I’m happy to be able to share all new compositions and recordings created for Halo 3: ODST. The music reflects the new mood, new heroes, and new story of the game. I worked with the Northwest Sinfonia for the orchestral recordings and also added some nice alto sax solos and some new guitar solos. The piano sneaks back in again a few times too, but I can’t seem to help that.”

The soundtrack is 2-discs and will be available at www.sumthingdigital.com and iTunes on September 22nd.

Finally, Foundry is the ultimate Forge map – players can edit every single object in this voluminous industrial warehouse, place stairways, walls, bridges and tunnels to create an entirely new play space and build almost any kind of map they can think of.
