Can I buy the Doom Eternal official soundtrack?

Best answer: As of right now, the only way to get Doom Eternal's pulsing metal soundtrack would be if you pre-ordered the Doom Eternal Collector's Edition. That awesome (and expensive) pack contains high quality lossless digital soundtracks for both Doom 2016 and Doom Eternal. Unfortunately, you won't get it on release day.The quintessential Doom: Doom Eternal ($60 at Amazon)More Doom, more fun: Doom Eternal Deluxe Edition ($90 at Microsoft)

A soundtrack that rips and tears like you do

Composer Mick Gordon is back again after his award-winning performance in Doom 2016. That now-infamous soundtrack grabbed onto your eardrums and aggressively pulled you into the game, and provided a perfect backdrop upon which to rip demons into tiny pieces with your bare hands. Doom Eternal's soundtrack might be even better. Gordon brought on a bunch of talented metal vocalists from varied backgrounds to bring a metal choir into Doom, making the soundtrack more gripping and ominous than ever before.

If you're one of the dedicated fans that pre-ordered Doom Eternal's Collector's Edition you'll get high-quality soundtracks included for both the first and sequel Doom games. This means digital tracks in lossless quality, so you don't lose a single note no matter what device you're listening on. For the rest of us, we'll have to be content with getting our Doom fix elsewhere. Doom Eternal's soundtrack hasn't shown its face in an official capacity on any platforms like Spotify or YouTube Music, but we'd be shocked if it didn't at some point after Doom Eternal's launch.

It's important to note that even those who pre-ordered Doom Eternal's Collector's Edition won't immediately get the official soundtrack on release day — March 20, 2020 — per a Bethesda update. A reason wasn't provided, although Bethesda did say lossless digital soundtracks for both Doom 2016 and Doom Eternal will be provided in the future. The company also said it'll let players know when they'll be available.

If you simply can't wait for your Doom fix, there's a pretty awesome playlist for Doom Eternal on Spotify that includes 89 songs from Mick Gordon and other talented bands and artists. The playlist should provide a perfect stopgap until the soundtrack is available in an official capacity. We'll update this space as soon as we have more information.
