One of The Elder Scrolls' strongest assets is the beautiful music that plays nearly constantly as you play through the game and explore the open world. The music changes tempo when you begin fighting and calms down as you get back to exploring or moving from place to place in the game world.
On top of that, you have incredibly realistic footsteps, the clash of metal as your sword meets an enemies armor or the colossal roar of a dragon from a hundred feet above you.
Bethesda Game Studios has offered a really exciting look behind the scenes on how the team developed the music and sound for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Take a look at the video above and definitely visit the Skyrim Wiki for more information on this exciting game.
