FANDOM


Each game in the TimeSplitters series has its own unique soundtrack, mostly created by composer Graeme Norgate (although he was aided by Goteki and Christian Marcussen in TimeSplitters 2 and TimeSplitters Future Perfect. Norgate also worked on many famous video games made by Rare for the Nintendo 64, such as GoldenEye and Perfect Dark. Indeed, the "Spaceship" track from the original TimeSplitters is notably similar to some of Perfect Dark's Skedar-themed music.

AvailabilityEdit

The majority of the music from all three TimeSplitters games was available for download, free of charge, from Free Radical Design's web page. The website also offered printable album artwork. However, since the company was bought out by Crytek, the website has closed down and the music is no longer traceable from the developers themselves. It is still available for free elsewhere online.

  • Graeme Norgate also has the music to the TimeSplitters games, as well as many of the other videogames he has scored, on his own website. However, the selection is not complete, with Future Perfect in particular lacking some cues.

Unofficial MusicEdit

TimeSplitters AdvanceEdit

The music for TimeSplitters Advance was probably done solely by Graeme Norgate, but since the game was never released, we can only assume this.

TimeSplitters 4Edit

The upcoming music for TimeSplitters 4 is expected to be composed by Graeme Norgate and possibly Christian Marcussen.

TimeSplitters GoldEdit

TimeSplitters Gold uses MIDI renditions of the official music in TimeSplitters Future Perfect. These renditions were arranged by Monocledsardine of TeamSplitters.
