Halo 2 Anniversary Soundtrack Worked On By Star Wars Sound Studio

It's not just the graphics that are being updated for Halo 2's upcoming re-release through Xbox One game, Halo: The Master Chief Collection. The 2004 game's soundtrack has been adapted and re-recorded, and 343 Industries chose award-winning Star Wars sound studio Skywalker Sound to help with the job.

343 Industries partnered with Skywalker Sound to update Halo 2's score, which was originally created by Martin O'Donnell and Michael Salvatori, Microsoft explains on the Xbox Wire. The San Francisco Opera Chorus also contributed to the soundtrack, as you can see in the image above.

In addition, the Halo 2 Anniversary soundtrack features new music from progressive metal band Periphery's Misha Mansoor and guitar virtuoso Steve Vai. You can see some images from the recording process in the gallery below.

The Halo 2 Anniversary soundtrack will be released tomorrow alongside The Master Chief Collection. You'll be able to buy it digitally, or on vinyl or CD. You can preorder the iTunes version today for $15.
