Who among you is picking up the "Ultimate Songbird Edition" or "Premium Edition" of BioShock Infinite? If you're in either one of those camps, I'm sure you know that there's a shiny (digital) copy of the soundtrack waiting for you in your exclusive edition. Would be nice to know what's going to be on said ablum, huh? Right on cue, Irrational Games was kind enough to give us a detailed breakdown of exactly that!
Featuring 28 tracks, series composer Gary Schyman has returned to create a sonic experience to complement the atmosphere that BioShock is known for. He's done a stellar job in the past, so I can't wait to hear what he brings to the table this time around.
Also shown by Irrational today is a snippet of a duet by Booker DeWitt and Elizabeth's voice talents (Troy Baker and Courtnee Draper, respectively) on the track "Will The Circle Be Unbroken," which is included above for your listening/viewing convenience. It's pretty pleasant, so I'd give that listen if I were you.
