Steam games that include the soundtrack for external listening

For those who enjoy listening to game soundtracks from time to time, I compiled this list of Steam games for which the music files are playable exernally on the windows desktop or elsewhere, along with the composer, folder location (within \steamapps\common\[game title] unless otherwise noted), and file format. Games that are listed as a "series" (e.g. "Penumbra series") apply to all such games released on Steam (in this case Overture, Black Plague, and Requiem). The music files for all the titles listed here should be playable natively with VLC Media Player version 1.1.3 or later; other media players may be more limited. Many portable mp3 players also play .ogg Vorbis files, along with .wav and .wma.

In cases where the game's official soundtrack is also available separately, there's a link to the download/purchase site. The music from the official package will usually be of higher quality and include proper metadata, and may also include bonus tracks as well. Plus you're supporting the composers directly.

Some games like Quake III and Call of Duty pack their music files into a custom archive file. For these you can use a program like Dragon UnPACKer to extract the music files manually, but because it requires some tinkering I did not list such games here.

Obviously, I don't own every Steam game so this list is incomplete. If you know of any additional games with this ability (or have a correction for one on the list), please post a reply with the folder location that contains the game music and file format.

Audiosurf includes the Orange box soundtrack.

The Void has a link to the bonus disk(including soundtrack) here


You also may want to note that for Mass Effect 2, the deluxe edition doesn't give you the full soundtrack. You only get about half of it. That was annoying to find out.

Thanks. I added the note for ME2 (also for Dragon Age as well, which has the same problem), and put the link to The Void's bonus disk download up. The Orange Box soundtrack was already listed with Audiosurf.

I thought this was a thread about fully free game soundtracks on Steam, now i'm disapointed

Anyway Dawn of War 2 has a free soundtrack available on the Steam Store page.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/15620/

Link is just above the system requirments.

Sorry about that, I guess (though some of them are free - check the external links). Added the DoW 2 link.

I find the muisc in Osmos and Season of Mystery very relaxing.


Also The Path released a soundtrack. It's on iTunes I believe as well.

Do you know if "The Path" game installation also has listenable music files? I guess I'd prefer to keep the initial post limited to those such games, or other Steam games that have a free soundtrack available elsewhere (e.g. Dawn of War 2). Listing all the buy-able soundtracks for Steam games would take up so much space that it'd probably have to be its own separate thread.

I do know that The Path's soundtrack is supposedly technically different from the in-game music (read: it's more of an arrange album than a cut-&-paste soundtrack). I'm too lazy to scrounge up specific claims/details, though.

Great! Those soundtracks are by Jeremy Soule, Inon Zur, and Ian Livingstone which makes them even sweeter. Added to the list.
