Time to break out the turntable, Call of Duty fans! iam8bit has partnered with Infinity Ward to release two limited edition vinyl soundtracks for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Zombies in Spaceland. Limited to 3,000 prints each, these albums will be sold separately and available for pre-order beginning Friday, September 2 through iam8bit’s website.
The iam8bit Call of Duty: Zombies in Spaceland soundtrack vinyl features ’80s pop synth-inspired music by the Infinity Ward team and David Hasselhoff’s DJ game character on the cover. Pressed on a 10-inch UFO picture disc record, the soundtrack also includes the digital edition. “Of special note, it’s really fun to watch the UFO spin on the turntable,” iam8bit added in a statement.
Meanwhile, The Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare soundtrack vinyl features music by composer, Sarah Schachner (Assassin’s Creed: Unity) and exclusive album art by UK-based illustrator, Chris Skinner. The set includes 2xLP picture discs with music mastered specifically for vinyl as well as the digital soundtrack.
In a recent interview with Game Informer, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare composer, Sarah Schachner said she wants the soundtrack to “capture the loneliness felt in space and the burdens of war.”
“I think the emotional aspect of this Call of Duty sets it apart in an interesting way,” Schachner continued. “Also, the future setting allowed more room for creative experimentation than if it was tied to a past or present era. The developers at Infinity Ward really wanted to try something different with this game, and that was a lot of fun for me.”
Schachner is participating in the “Maestros of Video Games” panel during PAX on September 4 with fellow composers, Inon Zur (Eagle Flight, Fallout 3 & 4), Jack Wall (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 & 3, Lost Planet 3), Sascha Dikiciyan (Deus Ex: Mankind Divided), Austin Wintory (Banner Saga, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate) and David Housden (Volume VR).
