Outriders, created by the studio People Can Fly, tells the story of an elite force of explorers sent as support to investigate a planet that's been designated as a new home for humans. But all isn't as it first appears on the planet, and its tranquility rapidly turns deadly for the Outriders. Inon Zur's stunning soundtrack uses a massive orchestra, synths, and some beautiful solo instruments to keep the focus on the human drama.

As a newly-signed artist to Sony Masterworks, Inon Zur's first project is Into the Storm, an album of songs inspired by the fantasy world of his music for Dragon Age

As he told me, the album is dedicated to his fans, and they'll find the music on the album both welcoming and familiar.

After 13 years, Inon Zur reunites with some old friends and meets new ones, as the composer for Benoit Sokal's adventure game, Syberia 3! Heroine Kate Walker sets out on an epic journey to save the Youkal Tribe. Sokal said his inspiration for the Youkals is the nomadic Siberian and Mongolian tribes, which gave Inon plenty of musical ideas, as you'll hear in our conversation.

Syberia 3 releases in Europe on April 20th, and in North America on April 25th.
