Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is promised to have as good of a soundtrack as its predecessor.

One of the original Mirror’s Edge’s most memorable aspects, is its electronic, synthesiser-heavy soundtrack. The game featured music from Swedish artist Solar Fields, and EA has confirmed his return to work on Catalyst.

“My job is recreating these game environments musically and enhancing moments in the game. Setting the story to music,” he told the game’s blog. “Getting things like tempo changes perfect, and making everything sync with the gameplay is really challenging.”

Fields said he’s plays the game, looks at character bios and reads the script regularly with DICE designers to get the feedback he needs to create the music.

Here’s a sample of some of his new work.

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is out in February 2016.
