Download The BioShock 2 Soundtrack On Tuesday

Fans not opting to purchase the Limited Edition of BioShock 2 can get their hands on the soundtrack next week, when 2K Games releases two versions of the soundtrack digitally, packed with the greatest hits from the '30s, '40s and '50s.

Between BioShock and Fallout 3, I've grown quite fond of music from the '30s through the '50s lately. These old songs have the sort of sound that you just can't find today, with themes that at times seem completely alien to an American living in the 21st century. As I neglected to purchase the Limited Edition of the game with the soundtrack included, news that the music will be available via my favourite digital music delivery service come Tuesday is quite welcome indeed.

The soundtrack for BioShock 2 comes in two flavours: the standard edition with 12 tracks, and the deluxe edition, with six more tracks from the likes of Fred Astaire and Red McKenzie. I only wish they were selling physical copies of this, as it would make a perfect gift for my stepfather, who tends to enjoy anything older than him.

You can check out the full track listing below, and if you're in the mood for a more immediate BioShock 2 music fix, you can listen to Rapture Radio on your computer right now, via iTunes (pls) or Windows Media Player (asx). Enjoy!

    will you have to pay for these digital downloads or will they be free? Cause if they are free it kind of devalues the collectors edition...

      It would be odd if they were free, considering there's a standard and a deluxe edition.
      Who would get the standard?
