Developed by DICE in Sweden, Battlefield 2042 is the twelfth installment in the FPS series published by Electronic Arts. The multiplayer-focused title, supporting cross-platform play, depicts a near-future apocalyptic climate crisis.

Lakeshore Records has opened preorders for Battlefield 2042 'Rising Tides' vinyl soundtrack, composed by Hildur Guðnadóttir and Sam Slater, with shipping estimated for November 4th. Preorders have opened through European distributor Invada Records for the green color variant.

"Nonlinearity seems like a great way to work with sound and music in a more open way," says Guðnadóttir on the challenges of the duo's first foray into game score composition. "[Y]ou have more possibilities for things to change and develop as you work. Creating music for a project that’s interactive is just a different way of writing and that was interesting for us as composers." The full interview can be read on EA's Battlefield web portal.

Battlefield 2042 is currently available for PS4 and PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Series X|S, along with Windows through Steam and the Epic Games Store. The 14-track digital soundtrack is streaming on YouTube Music and Amazon Music Unlimited, previewed on SoundCloud.
