on November 8, 2014 3:36 PM

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced the release of the original soundtrack to Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor.

Players of the game can further immerse themselves in the sweeping lands of Mordor with video game musical composer Garry Schyman (BioShock Infinite) and Nathan Grigg (F.E.A.R., Condemned, No One Lives Forever 2) that is both impactful and magical.

The 47-track score, available on iTunes is takes a much darker turn from previous Lord of the Rings video game soundtracks or even Howard Shore’s score, sounding like one long continuous battle sequence at times.
