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.

:wub:

Personally one of my favourite soundtrack pieces. I would love to hear the full version.

Somehow, I don't think it would be a new trailer, as trailers don't tend to include vocals. It may be a different one using the piano theme though.

People have noticed this song popped up on Amazon.
It doesn't go on sale until the 17th (The last day of Gamescom)

What is really intresting is it seems to be a 5+ minute vocal version of the infamous Gamescom 2011 GW2 trailer theme.

Seems to me to be the perfect song and length of one more awesome trailer for GW2. Thoughts?

I think your making conclusions too quick. first of there is a 1 cd soundtrack included in the ce. further there is a 4 cd soundtrack on sale separate. So a lot of GW2 related music is getting out. So I think your making some dodgy conclusions, but then again. You could be right.

I wouldn't mind. I enjoy this song completely. And the vocals just from that teaser were great.

Interesting find. My thought is it might be at an important moment that you get this song in game. Perhaps at completion of person story or once you hit 80 or maybe as you exit dungeons.

Sounds like a good "end credit" song that might roll after the defeat of Zhaitan.

It would be really cool to see a new trailer for launch.

I think they only offer e-mail support...so perhaps they will just e-mail us the full MP3 when we open a help ticket. That way we could get the song without paying on Amazon! :D

Sounds amazing

I doubt that it is for a trailer though, they usually don't have vocals like that.

I dunno, Skyrim did it. And if they don't have any ArenaNet developers talking, it should be do-able.

I say bring this song in a trailer.
