Skyrim: Legendary Edition has been spotted at Ultima, a Polish retailer and is down for a June 7 release, according to a Eurogamer Poland report. According to the retailer, the pack will contain Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn DLC packs for PS3 and Xbox 360 for around £35/$54 with the PC version said to run £29/$44. While Bethesda has not announced such a SKU yet, it would not be uncommon for the firm, as it has released bundles for its Fallout and Elder Scrolls series in the past. We’ll still send a mail and ask. Thanks, Eurogamer.

The Elder Scrolls score composer Jeremy Soule has asked fans to help him convince Bethesda to license or launch a concert highlighting the RPG franchise’s orchestral score. Soule asked New York-based fans to indicate their interest on a Facebook status update – at time of writing, he’d attracted 1,563 Likes, 169 comments and 312 shares. Presumably having allowed one concert Besthesda could be persuaded to license its scores to other concert halls and symphonies around the world, perhaps resulting in a tour series like those Final Fantasy and The Legend of Zelda have spawned. Soule is a prolific composer and has scored several games and movies.
