The PS4 Skyrim Special Edition launches this month, and Bethesda is throwing a concert to usher it in. However, Jeremy Soule, the game’s composer, recently posted on Facebook that he had not been made aware of the gig.

“For the record, this concert has nothing to do with me, nor are they using any of my original scores,” Soule said, adding that the performers “had to transcribe whatever notation they are performing by ear from the recordings”. While the company is well within its rights to hold a concert, Soule said he wanted to warn fans that the music might sound slightly different to those with trained ears.
Especially if they’ve taken an arrow to the knee.
The event will be held in the Palladium in London on November 16, 2016. Tickets go on sale October 4.
