LOTR: War in the North Soundtrack Goes on Sale Nov. 1

on October 25, 2011 10:00 PM

You don’t have to be in the midst of orcs, elves and dwarves in order to immerse yourself in the sounds of The Lord of the Rings: War in the North. The third-person action RPG’s soundtrack will be available the day the game drops, Nov. 1.

The score, composed by Inon Zur and performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, will be made available through digital distribution services like iTunes and the disc will be on sale at Amazon.

You may remember Zur’s work from Power Rangers Turbo. No? Just me, then? What about Dragon Age: Origins, Fallout 3 or Crysis? While game soundtrack releases may not be the biggest deal to some of us, others fondly remember nights spent sparring to Final Fantasy battle music in our rooms in seventh grade. Just me again?

You can pick up the first M-rated Lord of the Rings game when it hits stores Nov. 1 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Hit the jump for a full track listing.
