Astro Arcade is where the intersection of esports, gaming, and music comes alive. Few things go better together than electronic music and this digital universe, so whether it is a game soundtrack by our favorite artists or a virtual in-game concert series, Astro Arcade is here to keep players and listeners alike informed as these worlds continue to collide.
It’s certainly no well-kept secret that the soundtrack to each year’s newest FIFA edition is put together by those at EA Sports with a laudable taste in music. For FIFA 22, EA Sports has assembled its single biggest musical collection in the franchise’s 26-year history, announcing a titanic 122-song index for the game that’s scheduled for release on October 1.
Split between FIFA 22’s normal in-game experience as well as its VOLTA mode, the game’s soundtrack will include more than an abundance of dance music, including Swedish House Mafia’s second Paradise Again single “Lifetime,” AREA21’s most recent album offering “Followers,” an incoming follow-up collaboration between DJ Snake and Malaa,—slated to arrive on the game’s release day—one of Dancing Astronaut’s Artists to Watch in 2021 TSHA, RL Grime and ISOxo’s “Halloween IX” intro “Stinger,” Elderbrook and Bob Moses’ “Inner Light,” as well as AC Slater, Armand van Helden, Firebeatz, Major Lazer, The Chemical Bros, and much more.
