Shift 2 mixes original scores with alternative soundtracks

Shift 2 Unleashed is recruiting some top talent for its soundtrack. The game is set to mix both the traditional list of different songs and feature its very own scores, composed by some promising people.

Iron Man composer Ramin Djawadi is one of the bigger names behind the score. You may remember he also worked with EA on last year’s Medal of Honor. Troels Folmann is also on board. He works primarily with games and film trailers.

The remaining composers; Heavy Melody Music, Stephen Baystead and Mick Gordon have all worked on previous Need for Speed titles.

There are also 10 alternative rock tracks for the ears of gamers who want a more down to earth soundtrack. Biffy Clyro, 30 Seconds to Mars, The Bravery and Jimmy Eat World all feature. We’ll admit right now though, a measly 10 songs is a little disappointing.

Shift 2 is out at the end of this month in the US and the start of April for the UK.
