Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Original Game Soundtrack album to be released digitally as enclosed in special retail editions

Shadow of the Tomb Raider and its numerous retail editions were officially revealed today and the next pillar instalment of the long-running video game franchise is now available to pre-order. With this announcement it is clear that the Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Original Game Soundtrack is to be released as enclosed in the following versions of the game:
  • Deluxe Edition
  • Digital Deluxe Edition
  • Croft Edition
  • Digital Croft Edition
  • Collector's/Ultimate Edition (territory dependent)

What is not clear is if the physical special retail editions will include a physical CD or a digital download format for the release - we have made an enquiry with Square Enix. Regardless, this marks a continuing trend of dedicated soundtrack releases for the Tomb Raider franchise and the album has entered MoTR's commercial discography. Update: the enclosed soundtrack album is presented in digital format only.

We've already heard some (presumably) in-game music from Shadow but the composer is yet to be announced. Jason Graves has declined involvement, while Rise of the Tomb Raider's Bobby Tahouri could be likely to return. Shadow of the Tomb Raider releases worldwide on September 14th, 2018.


  1. I think the post on the official Tumblr has been updated recently, it now states clearly the soundtrack is digital for all versions. A pity. :(

  2. Thanks Lucas! Post updated.

  3. The digital soundtrack for my ps4 isn't working please help after it launches it says no music found need help please

    1. Square Enix should have emailed you with a download link for the Shadow of the Tomb Raider Original Game Soundtrack upon successful registration of a copy of the game (Deluxe/Croft/Collector's/Ultimate Edition only) - this does require in-game linking with your Square Enix account from the main menu.

  4. The UK Playstaion Official Magazine comes with a conceptual album for Shadow of The Tomb Raider
