There hasn't been a whole lot of Flat Universe info in the news lately, but that's about the change. Here's a very cool audio sample that gives fans a taste of what to expect next. The clip is from project musician Cory Fujimori and fuses some of the best elements of WC1/2 audio into an exciting patrol track. There's everything from the flight deck scramble to a high pressure torpedo run music as well as successful and calming victory notes for the trip home. Listen below (or download 7.6 MB mp3) and stay tuned in the days ahead for more!

Just close your eyes...
