The BBC Proms, an annual series of classical music concerts, will include music from video games for the first time.

Music from Kingdom Hearts, Shadow of the Colossus, Battlefield 2042 and Dear Esther will feature in the concert, revealed by the BBC and spotted by Eurogamer.

The game’s ball, From 8-Bit to Infinity, takes place on August 1 at London’s Royal Albert Hall – which will be decorated to represent the game’s history – and is performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Robert Ames – who has previously led a sci-fi-themed ball with music from Interstellar, Alien: Covenant, and more – will lead the event, with the longest performance at 14 minutes coming from the ” sequel” from Battlefield 2042 composed by Hildur Guðnadóttir and Sam Slater.
