Deus Ex: Human Revolution was heavy on atmosphere, and a lot of that was down to Michael McCann’s impressive score.
No bad thing, then, that a 25 track CD (and digital release) of McCann’s work will be released on 15 November through Sumthing Else Music.
The composer was directly involved in the selection process, and says “There were close to 200 pieces of music created for the soundtrack for Deus Ex: Human Revolution and I’ve selected 50 of those cues to create the 25 arrangements on this album”.
Some of those pieces chosen are “alternate versions that were created for the various advertising trailers for the game” and McCann hopes the album represents the “arc of the game’s story”.
That story is, of course, still having bits added to it through DLC. You can read our review of the first add-on, The Missing Link, .
