Choicest VGM - VGM #196 - Wing Commander: Privateer - New Detroit

Soundtrack composed by: Laura Barratt, Marc Schaefgen and Nenad Vugrinec

Ah New Detroit - another one of the unique locations you could visit in Wing Commander: Privateer; like the real city of Detroit in its heyday, New Detroit is a manufacturing hub and is probably the most important industrial planet in the Gemini Sector - although that's not surprising considering the entire planet is urbanised! If you like dark, dystopian, cyberpunk megacities with acid rain bucketing down and hover cars zooming about, this is the place to be!

The music itself is rather ambient and acts more like background noise more than anything else. I especially like the fact you hear sirens every so often - probably a nod to the real Detroit's really high crime rate.

Thanks to C75 and WCNEWS for providing these memorable tracks.
