Bluehole Studio has recruited a couple of award-winning composers to handle to music for their upcoming MMORPG, TERA. Inon Zur, who is credited with musical works on such games as BioWare's Dragon Age Origins, Lineage 2, and Fallout 3, while Rod Abernethy is known for his work on games such as Dead Space, Alpha Protocol, and The Hobbit, have composed and produced the musical score for the upcoming fantasy-based action-MMORPG, TERA. Some of the music from TERA can be heard on Abernethy's website, where he features five musical scores from the game: Ruins of Ancient War, A World Torn Apart, The Valley, Prepare for Battle, and Jungle.
"The general direction for the music for TERA was to have an original score that sounded grand and to match the large-scale in-game world, mixed with some warm sounding music," said Mr. An Yong Jin, Audio Director for TERA at Bluehole Studio. "Inon has created world-class quality, epic orchestral music, which is his best attribute; his sweeping symphonic music is outstanding. Rod's beautiful compositions for TERA span a wide scope of musical styles. His expertly crafted blend of acoustic guitar and orchestral compositions is incredible for enhancing the musical atmosphere and their popular music appeal."
