Music is something that all too often gets overlooked as background in games. Good video game music is always there ambient in the background. The best music works with the game, and never outshines it, instead providing just he right touch of ambiance. Deus Ex is one such game.

The Front Cover of the limited edition evokes a very dark side of the moon feeling.

The music from Deus Ex: Human Revolution was composed by award-winning composer Michael McCann (a.k.a Behavior). The 25-track soundtrack combines many of the almost 200 tracks created for the game into a 70-minute journey through the heavily atmospheric, and oppressive world of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. This limited edition double vinyl release is presented in a specially designed gold foil inlay album cover and gold colored vinyl, and features two bonus tracks: “Deus Ex: The Fall (Menu Theme)” and “Sarif vs. Unatco.” Already available on CD and iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play and other online retailers worldwide, the Deus Ex: Human Revolution soundtrack will soon make its debut on vinyl.

Michael McCann returned to compose music for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, joined by award-winning artist Sascha Dikiciyan (aka Sonic Mayhem) and composer Ed Harrison, who bring their talents to the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – Breach soundtracks, respectively. The soundtrack will come in 2 different editions: a standard and an extended 2-CD version including 14 additional tracks. Co-produced by Sascha Dikiciyan and executive audio director Steve Szczepkowski, the albums were mixed by Sonny DiPerri and mastered by Dave Cooley. Tracklisting available hereand here
