Bethesda Softworks has announced that The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion's soundtrack will be composed by none other than Jeremy Soule, known for his work on games like Icewind Dale, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Bethesda's previous Elder Scrolls title, Morrowind.
"I've been working with Jeremy for a long time," said Todd Howard, executive producer for Oblivion, "And this is by far his best work. The game is an epic-fantasy-drama, and the score adds greatly to its dramatic appeal... What he has brought to Oblivion is extraordinary. I can't wait for everyone to hear it."
"It has been a thrill to score the music for the next installment in The Elder Scrolls series," said Soule. "The stunning, epic quality of The Elder Scrolls series is particularly compatible with the grand, orchestral style of music I enjoy composing the most. It has been a pleasure to be involved with such a revolutionary series that is poised to redefine the RPG genre once again."
Oblivion is slated to release at the end of this year for the Xbox 360 and for Windows-based PCs. It recieved RPGFan's "Best Overall RPG of E3 2005" award earlier this year. Check out the official Elder Scrolls site below.
