The Game Awards has announced that this year's show will feature a live musical performance by 17-time Grammy Award-winning musician Sting (no, not that Sting).
The commercially and critically-acclaimed musician will perform “What Could Have Been” from the original soundtrack of Riot Games and Fortiche Productions’ League of Legends-based Netflix animated series Arcane.
Born Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner, Sting rose to fame as the frontman, songwriter and bassist for British new wave rock band the Police from 1977 to 1986. In 1985 he launched his solo career, and – combined with his time in the Police – has sold over 100 million records worldwide.
He has also appeared in several films over the years, most famously portraying the villainous Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen in David Lynch's troubled 1984 adaption of Dune. However, for many (this writer included), Sting's crowning glory in the realm of the moving picture is his appearance on The Smell of Reeves and Mortimer in 1995.
Speaking of League of Legends, four games are Switch-bound. Ruined King: A League of Legends Story and Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story are already available, while CONV/RGENCE: A League Of Legends Story and Song of Nunu: A League of Legends Story are on the way soon.
