New "Turning Point" score from Tomb Raider (2012) in the second Crystal Habit Pod-cast

Crystal Dynamics Community Manager, Meagan Marie, dropped the second official Crystal Habit Pod-cast on the Official Tomb Raider Blog today (pertaining to Tomb Raider (2012)).

As well as discussion about various franchise and game-play related tidbits with Global Brand Director Karl Stewart and a representative from Eidos Montreal, the pod-cast also includes samples of the music heard in the Tomb Raider "Turning Point" cinematic trailer.

The 5 samples include the opening theme from the trailer, a few seconds of an entirely new musical stinger, the official Tomb "Ringtone", an excerpt of a previously unobtainable piece (that builds up to the climatic leap of faith) and finally a clean rendition of the closing score to the Turning Point trailer:

Today's samples were available at a high fidelity of 320kbps; a similar quality to look forward to for the promised upcoming iTunes serial of the pod-cast.

Also elaborated upon was the music that plays on Lara's headphones in Turning Point; apparently it was an original techno piece "whipped up" by in-house sound designer Alex Wilmer. Ambiguously, Stewart jokes that Crystal may even release the piece as a treat for the fans. The composer for Tomb Raider (2012) is expected to be announced later in the year.


  1. I wish there was a full trailer soundtrack uploaded... Especially this epic part from 1:11 :D Fantastic soundtrack and amazing game!

    1. I agree, I am totally in love with that particular excerpt.
