Today, Spotify launched a new Gaming category where you can easily find gaming music, playlists and soundtracks.
Last year, I spent hours searching for all the individual classics from the Fallout franchise to make my own playlist on Rdio (). Today, doing that is a lot easier on Spotify.
To get to the new category, visit spotify.com/gaming or open the Genres & Moods section under the Browse tab within the Spotify app.
There, you'll find all the community-created gaming playlists, such as ones by PlayStation Music, EA Sports and even Guitar Hero. These playlists include soundtracks for Assassin's Creed Syndicate, FIFA 16, Rocket League, curated playlists by Engadget and Polygon and several others.
Spotify has curated its own selection of gaming playlists, as well. There are mixes like Indie Gaming, Retro Gaming, Top Gaming Tracks, Epic Gaming and more.
The highlight of this new Gaming category, however, are the original soundtracks, at the bottom of the section within the app (or the middle tab on the Spotify Gaming site). You can find the soundtracks just by a normal search in the Spotify app, but on the Spotify Gaming landing page, they can be sorted alphabetically. Some of the most popular soundtracks currently being featured are No Man's Sky, Uncharted 4 and .
Here are a few of my favorite playlists and soundtracks so far:
- No Man's Sky
- Sword & Sworcery Lp: The Ballad Of The Space Babies
- Fallout 4
- Tasty Gaming
- Indie Gaming
- Soundscapes for Gaming
- Dark Souls III
