Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Dishonored: Bethesda Soundtracks Now on iTunesby Daniel “nfgDan” Ryan
Bethesda Softworks has released seven of its game soundtracks to iTunes so you can set the mood of everyday life to your favourite video games.
The Elder Scrolls
The Elder Scrolls soundtracks, all composed by Jeremy Soule, include Morrowind and Oblivion for $9.99 each, while Skyrim asks an imperial premium at $15.99.
Re-live your time as “The Nerevarine” as you wandered the Dunmer island of Vvardenfell.
As shown in our overdue review of Oblivion, the game holds up pretty well even now. The music is no different, familiar sounds and tunes will take you back to a time of the Grey Fox and the Mythic Dawn.
Even just the power of the first track Dragonborn makes me want to perform shouts and pick butterfly wings. Probably don’t listen to this in a crowded area, in case you start yelling “Fus Ro Dah.”
Fallout Original Game Soundtracks
Unfortunately not the musical styling and DJ skills of Three Dog however you’ll certainly want this on your MP3 player in the event of an apocalyptic world war that turns everything to wasteland. These songs range from, “I don’t want to set the world on fire” and “Blue Moon” all the way to “It’s a Sin to Tell a Lie” and “Jingle, Jangle, Jingle”
If you’re looking for more the dark and brooding background music of Fallout 3 then you can’t go past the music from Inon Zur.
Fallout: New Vegas
Dishonored and RAGE Soundtracks
The Dishonored soundtrack by Daniel Licht is also available if you feel the need to revisit the ambience of Dunwall.
Rod Abernethy’s RAGE soundtrack is available if you want a different flavour of post apocalyptic.
