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.

The 'Rising Tides' vinyl soundtrack, composed by Hildur Guðnadóttir and Sam Slater, ships from Lakeshore Records and European distributor Invada Records. The 14-track digital soundtrack is streaming on YouTube Music and Amazon Music Unlimited, previewed on SoundCloud.

A full interview can be read on EA's Battlefield web portal. "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."

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.
