This a must-hear video game soundtrack.

The multiplayer online battle arena, or MOBA for simplicity, the video game was developed by Riot Games with several games of the genre such as Warcraft sequels and DotA as its inspiration.

The anthem is the seventh in the lineup and falls in the pop-rock genre with an action-packed rhythm.

Each of these tracks in the list of Riot Games music rivals one another, offering its own set of unique vibes and flavor while sticking to the same basic ideology. They have received a lot of love from fans worldwide and have proved to be an excellent marketing strategy. We expect a brand new single soon this year too with Worlds 2021.
