Bethesda Games’ post-apocalyptic entertainment piece, Fallout 4, is due out Nov. 10 and not only the visual stimulus is so far impressive to some gaming fans, but the quality of melodious entertainment is indeed quite desirable. So much, in fact, that according to Yahoo News the 65 song soundtrack to Fallout 4 is now available for purchase on iTunes for $15.99.
Gamespot reported not knowing if the Fallout 4 soundtrack will be made available via online streaming through Spotify or through other digital media outlets. For now, fans of the RPG action game who have already pre-loaded Fallout 4 or are currently pre-loading it via Steam can listen to the melodic voice of Wonder Woman’s Lynda Carter, or the wonderfully-composed symphonic tunes of composer, Inon Zur. Some may recall Zur’s rendition of the main theme to Fallout 4 on his grand piano as shown on YouTube. This song has been playing consistently throughout a lot of the promotional trailers for the Bethesda produced game.
Zur, the composer of the main theme, discussed the process by which he created the piece. Apparently, there were a certain number of behaviors Zur subjected himself to as he developed the composition that blossomed from his creativity.
“I cruelly exploit the piano by hitting the strings with open hands and even biting the strings.”
Also included in the Fallout 4 soundtrack are five original songs written and sung by Wonder Woman’s Lynda Carter. In addition to that, Polygon reported that she voiced a singer by the name of Magnolia who resides in the town of, Good Neighbor, in the game.
Good Neighbor, which is also one of her songs in Fallout 4, is a key venue in the game where a lot of transactions tend to be made. Carter acknowledged in a Bethesda interview how her voiced character is rather insightful when it comes to the players.
“She knows who the players are. She’s a great judge of character. She’s really, really smart. And she does what she does because she loves it. So this is a safe place for her too.”
Lynda also emphasized how there’s no real genre to the music as song by her Magnolia. In fact, she gave thought to how the songs were reflected by the character’s personality in Fallout 4.
“I was trying to give a different flavor to each of the songs, because there really is no genre except for how Magnolia sings them. She is the ‘genre’ and her personality is reflected in every song.”
Gamezone also reported that her songs would be specifically aired on the fictitious Diamond City Radio in Fallout 4.
A report from Variety indicated that Lynda Carter also made an appearance at the Fallout 4 launch party in Los Angeles. She posed with a thumbs up next to the sizable Vault Boy character. Sther celebrities at the party include her husband and ZeniMax Media’s Robert Altman, olus celebrities Halle Berry, Kaley Cuoco, January Jones, Scott Porter, and Robbie Amell. Musicians Walk the Moon, and Bloc Party were also in attendance.
More specifically, the Fallout 4 party venue was located at a warehouse and a good amount of prep work was done to put together a wasteland theme at the location. Even themed drinks were a part of the menu and speaking of such beverages, according to Vine Report, a Nuka-Cola Quantum soda drink as found in Fallout 4 was stirred up.
There are other voice actors who play Fallout 4’s protagonist in the game. The female-led character is voiced by Courtenay Taylor and the male vault dweller, should the player choose such a gender, is voiced by Brian T. Delaney.
Fallout 4 continues the RPG game series, headed off by Bethesda Softworks game designer Todd Howard.
