BattleTech digital deluxe edition bundled with soundtrack

Continuing his collaboration with Seattle-based developer Harebrained Schemes, composer Jon Everist scored the turn-based strategy title BattleTech in 2018. Cologne's Black Screen Records published the soundtrack on audiophile 180-gram vinyl the following year.

Based on the Classic BattleTech board game, the science fiction strategy title is set in the year 3025 during ‘The Succession Wars.’ The player controls an honor guard serving the royal House Arano led by Kamea Arano. When a bloody coup d’etat is launched by the Aurigan Directorate dictatorship, the protagonist remains the sole survivor of Arano's failed coronation.

Recorded in Hungary, Germany, Seattle and Latvia, Everist’s compositions for BattleTech utilize his signature synthetic instruments, complemented by acoustic recordings performed by the Budapest Symphonic Scoring Orchestra and Brandenberg State Orchestra, remastered by Christian Bethge at RAMA Tonstudio. The digital soundtrack can be purchased through Bandcamp, and is streaming on Apple Music and Spotify.

Published by Paradox Interactive, BattleTech Digital Deluxe Edition is available through Steam and GOG for Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems, bundled with the digital soundtrack. A seven-part "Behind the Music" video playlist can be viewed on YouTube.
