The World Famous London Philharmonic Orchestra, in between performing Disney’s Fantasia, have been busy recording the second in the Greatest Video Game Music series, featuring tracks from some of the gaming world’s most iconic games, such as Batman: Arkham City, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, Final Fantasy VII and Halo and more.
Two of the tracks were chosen by readers of IGN and Kotaku, who picked Mass Effect 3 and Skyrim for the orchestral arrangement treatment.
To celebrate the completion and imminent 6th of November release, X5 Music Group have made available the track Never Forget/Peril from Halo, free on their website.
