Let's talk about background music!

    Since when you were a military hero shooting alien bugs in Space Invaders the background music is essential to the game immersion.

    The background music is one of the best aspects of DCUO:

    Open world:

    IMO Metropolis has the best bgm in the game, both the peaceful music for heroes and the distressful music for villains.


    The nightclubs bgm is one of the reasons why I have 3 villain characters.

    I usually mute it off, and play my own music. Depending on what character I am playing.

    When I used to play with the music on, I enjoyed the initial Watchtower music. I turned it way down though when I made a rage alt so I could hear the Heartbeat on my rage crash.

    I like play music. But unfortunately I have to leave everything well down to hear my friends on TS ...:p

    But The Music of DCUO is orchestrated. What made you think it is synthesized?

    I love the background music in DCUO. I use it in all of my most recent videos. They have some great pieces in there.

    I'd say currently my favourite is probably the New Genesis combat music, which you'll find in pretty much all my videos. I love how it loops. I could listen to it for hours. It's a great boss song and the stinger (which I use on my "Torikumu" intro clip) works well with it.

    I'm also keen on the Jesse/James combat music, too. I used that in the R&D gear system video. However, that song is great for the first 2 minutes or so, then it starts to slow down, too much and loses it's effectiveness as a boss song. It's reminiscent of an old fashioned device using traditional batteries, and as it begins to lose power, it slows down.

    Other songs I enjoy are the Batman Nexus of Reality song, the Stryker's Island open world music (I think you might have to be on a mission to hear it) and the music you hear at the Themyscira command post/upon completing Themyscira Divided.

    Other shout-outs would go to the Trigon's Prison "Prominent Families" boss fight music, which I feel combined with the Jesse/James music would make a great song. Also, DLC13 raid non-combat music.

    While I do play Spotify when I'm running stuff, I always play the in game music the first time I enter a new instance or open world area. Some of the music is really beautiful. My favorite is probably the Themyscira Command Post music. I think it's also the Themyscira alert music. I just love it.

    I still wish we could have a Juxebox amenity, because some of the Nightclub music is great too.

    Gotham Xmas seasonal music is the best music in the game by far. To the point that i could literally listening to it all the time
  10. Veritasum Loyal Player

    I have the least musically inclined bones ever. I like music and enjoy all types (except country), but I forget what I listened to about 3.5 seconds after I'm done listening (literally). All of the music you guys are referencing from the game, I have no idea what it is except for Metro. And that's 4+ years of almost daily listening :(.

    I turned the musak off years ago. On the PS4, once they added the ability to play your own tunes while gaming, I started doing that. Helped a lot with menial tasks like exo and collection farming. Metro overword theme brings back some old memories.

    Christmas Gotham theme is awesome and should soon be back :)
  13. Lionxoft Committed Player

    The hero music is awful but the villains is pretty awesome. I also agree that the holiday music is nice but after a while it wears you down but the same goes for IRL holiday cheer.
  14. Dezaras Loyal Player

    I also mostly play my own music and mute the in game soundtrack.
    However there are some nice pieces in the game. Both Gotham and Metropolis have bgm that evokes the locale, and the poster heroes for the cities. The holiday music is nice too.
    Gotham Wastelands music is cool. Too bad it's so short.
    Themyscira Outpost is a joy to listen too. No better way to say it. Sometimes I stay there for ages, just for the music.
    Halloween vault music's another cool one.
  15. KlugHeart New Player

    I agree, I always play to my own music too.
    In games the music is rarely bad, in DCUO the background music is ok, but not enough for me. I want action. So far, of all the games I've played, the best soundtrack for the fight is in CoD Mobile, when you summon Goliath. It's the most upbeat thing I've ever played.

    I keep the BGM muted for a few reasons.

    1) anything on a loop gets old after a couple of hours.
    2) I turn off anything that keeps me from hearing if I'm near something that can be picked up.
    3) I need to be able to hear what's going on around me IRL, because sometimes IRL needs outweigh the needs of the game.
