Hyper Light Drifter released on PC and Mac about two weeks ago. Its soundtrack was originally supposed to release on April 10. After a small delay, the soundtrack is now available for download.

Composer Disasterpeace (known predominantly for his work on Fez and the film, It Follows) asked for two extra days to finish up the soundtrack on April 7, pushing it beyond its initially planned release date. Last night, he finally released it. The soundtrack is $ 5 to download, and as our review indicates, it's definitely worth a listen. You can grab it here.

Official Soundtrack For No Man’s Sky Gets A Release Date

The official soundtrack of No Man's Sky is coming to all territories just before the launch of the game. No Man's Sky: Music for an Infinite Universe has been composed by UK instrumental group 65daysofstatic, who revealed the news today.

The group spent over a year composing the game's ambient music, which includes ten original tracks and another collection of six "soundscapes." These are being fed into the game using variable loops, sound textures, and melodies to create a "self-generating soundtrack" that complements the game's staggering number of locations.

The album is being released by Laced Records on June 17, and will be available for purchase and streaming at all major digital music retailers. The first full track, "Supermoon," has been released on SoundCloud to mark the announcement.
