This contest is over. Congratulations Eiledon TrueVoice!
Hey everyone DJ Helsing here. With the recent release of Riders of Rohan and the upcoming Update 9 I wanted to take a few minutes to review the Official Video Game Score and provide an opportunity for one of you to walk away with a FREE copy of the CD.
When I first entered into Rohan I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the music that Turbine ordered for the expansion. Normally in MMO’s you hear the same generic music throughout the game and nothing ever changes. Most games have one battle theme and one or two regional themes but nothing to expansive. Some MMO’s even reuse old music from less visited regions making it seem like its new music for the new area. This was definitely not the case with LOTRO and Rohan. Turbine spared no expense and created a very expansive score of 22 different and unique tracks that we hear through the Riddermark both in battle, instances and throughout the different regions of the expansion.
I personally really enjoy the music from this expansion. It’s very reminiscent of the themes and score of the films while still having its own unique touch that distinctly separates it from the motion pictures sound of Rohan. I enjoyed it so much I actually picked up a copy of the soundtrack myself and listen to it on long drives imaging myself riding my steed across the plains of Rohan or into battle.
If you haven’t heard it yet because you play with the sound off I would highly recommend turning the music on the next time you play or check out the Spotify channel when you’re at work and need an escape from reality.
