Observant eyes have noticed that Amazon has recently added a song for Guild Wars 2 titled "Fear Not This Night (featuring Asja)" by Jeremy Soule. While it's still listed as unavailable, those who want a small taste of the song are able to listen to a short sample until the full track is released this Friday the 17th. Fans of the game will also be in for a surprise since this song just so happens to be the vocalized version of the incredibly popular tune featured in the Gamescom 2011 trailer for Guild Wars 2.
According to Game Designer Matthew Medina, ArenaNet's own Ree Soesbee (author of the upcoming Sea of Sorrows novel) wrote the lyrics for the song herself [*].
Over on rumor mill, fans are speculating the purpose of this song. Will it be used for a final launch trailer? Are players going to hear this after they strike the final blow against Zhaitan? With launch just under two weeks away, how do you think we will experience this song? Will you be buying it on Friday? Let us know in the comments!
To clarify: "Fear Not This Night" will be both on the Best of Guild Wars 2 Soundtrack, which is included on the Collector's Edition, and the Guild Wars 2 Original Soundtrack, available from DirectSong.
