Bethesda has today announced that award-winning composer Inon Zur will be providing the original soundtrack for its highly anticipated Fallout 3. Zur, who has worked on a variety of games from Crysis to the Prince of Persia series is said to be crafting an epic and ambient score for this ambitious title.

"Fallout 3 is one of the most engaging and demanding projects I've scored," states Inon.  "It was very rewarding to put all my creative energy into supporting Bethesda's vision for the game. I'm very proud of the outcome, and look forward to sharing the music with the players."

If you want to see how epic and ambient Zur can be, you can check out three of the tracks from Fallout 3 on the game's official site. The main title is certainly a rousing track, and one I recommend giving a listen.

Award-Winning Composer Inon Zur


May 7, 2008 (Rockville, MD) -- Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax Media company, announced today that Inon Zur has created the original musical score for Bethesda Softworks' highly anticipated post-apocalyptic video game, Fallout® 3.

"We've wanted to work with Inon for a long time," said Todd Howard executive producer of Fallout 3. "He brings so much to the table, in terms of his talent, background, and the music that's influenced him. He's created a score that has epic sweep; from the lonely ambience of the wasteland to dramatic fights for survival."

Fallout 3 features one of the most realized game worlds ever created. Create any kind of character you want and explore the open wastes of post-apocalyptic Washington, D.C. Every minute is a fight for survival as you encounter Super Mutants, Ghouls, Raiders, and other dangers of the Wasteland.

In addition to scoring a number of best-selling video games, Zur's music has been featured in many high-profile projects including Hollywood film trailers, network television productions, CGI movies, and symphony concerts. Most recently, Zur has composed music for CBS' 'Ghost Whisperer: The Other Side' TV webisode series as well as the Marvel Kids webisodes for 'IRON MAN'.

Currently under development at Bethesda Game Studios – creators of award-winning The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion®, the 2006 Game of the Year – Fallout 3 is slated for release this Fall on Xbox 360®video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, and Games for Windows.
