Pre-order the four-disc Skyrim soundtrack

Once 11.11.11 hits, Skyrim will be on the minds of many for weeks and months on end. To help with those awkward moments when you’re away from the game (work, driving, going to the gym), we’ve got just what you need: The Elder Scrolls® V: Skyrim™  – The Original Game Soundtrack 4-disc set!

Available through DirectSong, the four-disc set is a fantastic collector’s item for fans of The Elder Scrolls. The compilation will begin shipping the week after the game’s release. As a bonus to anyone that orders by December 23rd, copies of the soundtrack will be personally autographed by the game’s composer, Jeremy Soule!

The four-disc CD compilation can be pre-ordered now for $29.99.

Details on the music being made available on iTunes will be announced at a later date.
