The hype for the 2019 League of Legends World Championship continues to build, and with the Play-In two weeks away, Riot Games decided it was time to release the Orchestral Theme for this year's Worlds.
The Orchestral Theme was released with an accompanying video with a 3D-rendered model of the World Championship trophy, surrounded by champions that have defined several iconic moments of Worlds past. The video starts with a fly-by of the trophy before going to other floating islands with 3D-renderings of the Elder Dragon, Baron Nashor, and the cities that will host the 2019 World Champinship. The video eventually pulls out into a full perspective of the floating monuments.
Riot Games has always invested into the creation of a song to commemorate each League of Legends World Championship, but stepped it up in a multitude of ways in 2018. "RISE" the official song for Worlds 2018 written by The Glitch Mob, MAKO, and The Word Alive, was accompanied — and subsequently dwarfed — by K/DA's smash-hit "POP/STARS", a collaboration with Madison Beer, Jaira Burns, and (G)I-DLE in commemoration of the new LoL K/DA skin line.
If Worlds 2019 wants to further build hype and live up to the expectations set in the previous year, expect far more commemorative art in all creative forms from the LoL Esports camp in the coming weeks.
