New LOTRO Riders of Rohan DLC Will Ride Out With a New Soundtrack
LOTRO will have a new soundtrack for the new expansions Riders Of Rohan coming out October 15th. Turbine and WB Interactive did not waste any expense or time handling one of the biggest MMO games out on the market. The soundtrack is being conducted by Judd Maher who has conducted video games and movie soundtracks in the past. He talks about the importance of a good soundtrack in the new game “It just unites all of the players”.
The composer, Chance Thomas, who has worked on tons of different video game soundtracks including X-men: The official Game 2006, Marvel Ultimate Alliance in 2006 and 3 other Lord of the Rings games has taken his time to study all three of J. R. R. Tolkien’s books. He says that he looked for anything in any of the books that referenced music so that he could ultimately build the most comprehensive score possible. He has taken these references and put them in the game for the hardcore fan. There are full scores with a large orchestra pieces as well as intimate two or three piece songs.
