Shift 2 Unleashed soundtrack details

Official soundtrack attempts to express the emotional journey of drivers

Posted on
EA has enlisted some of the world’s top composers and alternative music’s top bands to expand, enhance and re-imagine ten audio tracks to create the Shift 2 Unleashed soundtrack. The composers tapped into chart topping songs from Rise Against, Hollywood Undead, Escape The Fate, The Bravery, Anberlin, 30 Seconds To Mars, Stone Temple Pilots, Switchfoot, Biffy Clyro and Jimmy Eat World to create the soundtrack.

Shift 2 Unleashed features a completely new style of soundtrack that uses sonic themes to engage the player and represent the driver’s battle. Each composer was tasked with using the emotional themes of the game to create a cinema-level score.

“This is a totally unique approach to videogame scores,” said Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing for EA. “We’ve brought together some of the most cutting-edge composers from various film, TV, trailer and gaming backgrounds in entertainment to re-imagine the music of ten absolutely distinctive bands and sonically encapsulate the driver’s emotional journey.”

Developed by Slightly Mad Studios, Shift 2 Unleashed will be available in North America on March 29 and beginning on March 31 in Europe for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
