Whilst here are Codec Moments we’ve not been particularly enamoured with the free to play Warframe – and in contradiction to the solid community of 26 million registered players it boasts, and the fact that the devs also brought us The Darkness sequel which was an excellent game – we do like a bit of vinyl! So we’re in luck because Digital Extremes has partnered with iam8bit to produce an array of art-house Warframe merchandise.
Here’s the blurb:
Adorned with original artwork created by celebrated Spanish illustrator Patricio Betteo, Digital Extremes has remastered 24 tracks from the original score composed for Warframe and its first cinematic quest, The Second Dream, into a 2X LP vinyl soundtrack – digital download also included with the vinyl purchase. The moody, energetic electronica style sounds come from the talented mind of Hollywood composer Keith Power (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Criminal and Hawaii Five-0) with direction and mixing by Audio Director, George Spanos and the Digital Extremes’ in-house sound team.
The newly established iam8bit collaboration also brings a limited edition set of Warframe fine art prints, featuring all 32 Warframes in a stylized blend of Patricio Betteo’s distinctive abstract, illustrative pieces. The art prints are offered in a 6X6 inch giclee format, printed using archival inks and acid free paper and available in blind bags of five (randomly assorted), or in a complete set of 32 for players to collect, trade, and frame. The pre-order window lasts only 31 days starting March 17; the art prints will be numbered to fulfill the quantity of orders received.
Last, the first array of uniquely styled collectible enamel pins created from the highly popular in-game Glyphs are also available for pre-order on iam8bit’s online retail store, store.iam8bit.com.
It’s looking and sounding pretty good, but you’ll have to get in quick before the pre-order window shuts and these are out of your hands forever. It might well be your only chance ever to hear all 24 tracks from Warframe remastered and brought to life in the way only vinyl reproduction can achieve.
