RuneScape and Old School RuneScape Release their Soundtracks

Wow, Jagex, you’re perhaps a little late to the soundtrack release party, huh? Still, news that two RuneScape soundtrack releases are coming will very likely delight fans of the current RuneScape and Old School RuneScape, so better late than never as they say.

The releases in question come in two flavors. Runescape: The Orchestral Collection will include rearranged tunes from the MMORPGs by BAFTA award-winning composer James Hannigan, with compositions recorded by the London Philharmonic and Slovak National Symphony Orchestra. RuneScape: Original Soundtrack Classics will take a more nostalgic turn meanwhile, with a selection of original songs from OSRS and the early days of RuneScape.

Both soundtracks will be available in digital and physical releases, with CD and double-deluxe vinyl available for pre-order and the digital versions up for grabs now. The digital and CD versions will include 19 bonus tracks, while those who pre-order the vinyl editions will also get free digital copies of the albums as well.

Jagex plans to further release additional albums featuring the series soundtrack. Considering the title holds a Guinness World Record for most original pieces of music in a video game, they’ve got a lot of material available.

The announcement also came along with a video that offers a look at how the game’s music is put together, which you can watch below.

Our Thoughts

These tunes very likely carry lots of nostalgia for a lot of MMORPG fans, so it’s pretty surprising these songs weren’t released in an album sooner. Like we said in the opening, however, it’s definitely better late than never and we hope fans of the RuneScape series enjoy these new releases.

Inon Zur to Score Fallout 76 Soundtrack

Composer Inon Zur, famous for scoring other Bethesda games like Fallout 3 and 4 and Dragon Age: Origins, is now confirmed to be the brains behind the Fallout 76 soundtrack. So we can all expect that this game will sound just as good as it looks.

According to Zur, players can look forward to “a sophisticated and emotional score” that will closely follow inspiration from Fallout 76’s sense of scope as well as inspiration from game director Todd Howard and audio director Mark Lampert.

“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!”

Zur’s career is an illustrious one, with the composer scoring the Emmy award-winning documentary Saber Rock and receiving BAFTA nominations three times for his work. He’s also been tied to a number of popular games such as Prince of Persia and The Lord of the Rings: The War in the North.

Our Thoughts

We’re expecting some great ear candy out of Mr. Zur’s work for this game. When you’re out in a multiplayer space wandering the wasteland for goodies and survival, you’re going to want to have some good music to listen to and we can certainly think of no finer choice to handle composing duties for Fallout 76.
