“I believe that this is one of my most unique scores to date… “
Speaking to Variety, Bethesda revealed that the composer of previous Fallout titles including Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, and Fallout 4, is back to compose the upcoming instalment of the series.
Zur said he took inspiration from Bethesda Game Studio director Todd Howard and collaborated closely with the studio’s audio director Mark Lampert to score Fallout 76.
“… I weaved a sophisticated and emotional score that takes the player on a whole new journey,” said Zur. “To make the experience even more epic, we had the Budapest Film Orchestra perform and record the score, as well as the amazing Lyris String Quartet. I believe that this is one of my most unique scores to date and I can’t wait to share it with everyone!”
Lampert described the studio as being “… very excited… ” to have Zur back to score the soundtrack to Fallout 76.
“His work helps create that familiar ‘Fallout’ sound that roots us in the series, but also sculpts and evolves that sound toward the elements that make ‘Fallout 76’ unique: working together to rebuild, looking to the future, and the dramatic, rolling landscape of West Virginia,” said Lampert. “We look forward to everyone getting the chance to enjoy this music and the game world as we did while putting it all together.”
Fallout 76 is scheduled for release on 14th November for Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
