Choicest VGM - VGM #463 - Universe at War: Earth Assault - Slithering

Universe at War OST artwork

Soundtrack composed by Frank Klepacki

Apologies for missing out on two VGM posts but due to illness on both Mondays, I unfortunately didn't end up posting. We're back on track now and back to the Universe at War: Earth Assault soundtrack with another Hierarchy track called "Slithering". This track reminds me of the slow, lumbering hulks that are the Hierarchy's Walkers.

Habitat Walkers in Universe at War: Earth Assault serve as mobile barracks for the Hierarchy. They can teleport in Hierarchy units from orbit and crush most enemies with their gigantic legs. It takes quite a bit to destroy one of these Walkers too as you'll need to destroy all its hardpoints before you can expose its coolant nodes: destroying these, will destroy the Walker. The Habitat Walker is probably the most iconic unit in the game considering it features prominently on the box art and in many advertisements for the game.

The soundtrack was originally offered for free off the Petroglyph forums but you can download a copy from the Free VGM section at Choicest Games.
