The main campaign of Battletech from studio Harebrained Schemes is a war story about betrayal, heartbreak, and occasionally, victory. Urban Warfare, the latest expansion, gives players a chance to hit the streets in massive cities around the galaxy for tactical battles. Jon Everist created a completely different sound for Urban Warfare to reinforce the epic size of the cities and the battles that take place there.
Jon says it was a great experience to return to the Battletech universe after a year away and start with a clean slate.
Jon's soundtrack for Battletech has gotten some fantastic recognition, including an ASCAP Composers' Choice nomination for best video game score. He's working with Black Screen Records on a double-vinyl release of the soundtrack, which is available for pre-order now, and Jon is generously offering a Bandcamp discount code for orders of the signed vinyl for listeners to the series: MusicRespawn2019.
