Fallout 76: Here's The New Main Theme
Take me home, Inon Zur.
Fallout 76 has based its marketing around its unique setting in West Virginia, including a debut trailer with the famous folk song and state song "Take Me Home Country Roads" by John Denver. As the release draws closer, Bethesda has now released its main theme, from longtime composer Inon Zur.
The track isn't "Country Roads," but Bethesda does say the score is "inspired by the beauty of West Virginia." Zur has previously composed for Fallout 4, Prince of Persia, Dragon Age 2, and many more games.
West Virginia is a lovely and idyllic setting in many of the trailers, but this being a Fallout game, it's going to have its share of ugliness as well. It takes place earlier than most other Fallout games so the mutants and enemies will be unique to this game. And you can make it a lot less beautiful by detonating a nuclear weapon over it.
We recently had hands-on time with Fallout 76, finding it to be a very different kind of post-apocalypse. You can try it yourself when the beta period kicks off on October 23 for Xbox One and October 30 for PC and PlayStation 4. Read our pre-order guide for more details.
