Gamers know that some of the best music in the world comes from digital entertainment. Now, finding awesome tracks is easier than ever.
The music-streaming service Spotify has opened a new portal for gaming-themed music, featuring soundtracks and playlists created by Spotify and other gaming outlets and personalities — like us. Yup, you can listen to a GamesBeat playlist on Spotify, featuring tracks picked by our staff across games like The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Ori and the Blind Forest, Red Dead Redemption, and a lot more.
“Starting today, we’re giving you all of your favorite gaming music and soundtracks — all housed in a single category,” Spotify noted on its site. “Find curated playlists like Power Gaming, RetroWave and Top Gaming Tracks as well as hundreds of gaming titles, covering everything from nostalgic 80’s mono tunes to the hottest new releases — and we’re only just getting started.”
Spotify told GamesBeat that gaming lists have always been popular on the platform. This now gives its users easier access. The gaming category is available on all platforms that Spotify is available on, including iOS, Android, desktop, and PlayStation 4. Others creating playlists for the new section include StarCraft commentator Day and short film-creators Sneaky Zebra.
You’ll have plenty of gaming music to check out … but you’ll listen to our playlist first, right?
