Geoff Keighley’s placing on a present. I don’t imply E3 killing Summer Game Fest however an precise music live performance celebrating 10 years of The Recreation Awards. The announcement doesn’t embody a Coachella-style lineup of acts like a typical live performance announcement would; relatively, it’s an inventory of sport music you’ll hear throughout the efficiency.
There are 12 video games that’ll be featured throughout the live performance, together with previous sport of the 12 months winners like The Final of Us and a smattering of music from the most well-liked or most anticipated video games to return, like Closing Fantasy XVI and Starfield. You too can count on to listen to the musical stylings of Hades, Elden Ring, and God of Struggle, in fact, however the live performance additionally options music from gaming-adjacent media just like the League of Legends present Arcane. However the set listing isn’t all fuel no breaks, sadly, that includes picks from the TERF (trans-exclusionary radical feminists) wizard sport. Right here’s the total listing in your perusal.
Within the interview, Keighley additionally realized that his resolution to incorporate music from Hogwarts Legacy will rankle some, because of the sport’s connection to and enrichment of its transphobic creator, J.Ok. Rowling. However he mentioned Hogwarts Legacy was too large to disregard, citing the sport’s monetary success and the truth that the Hollywood Bowl will probably be internet hosting a Harry Potter efficiency the day earlier than the live performance.
There’s a superb probability that, like with The Recreation Awards, there will probably be musical friends to accompany the orchestra much like Bear McCreary’s God of Struggle Ragnarök efficiency final 12 months.
