Ever wanted to experience League of Legends on the go, no matter where you are? Your wait is now over.
Riot Games has released The Music of League of Legends Vol 1 via iTunes, Google Play and directly from their site. If going through Apple or Google’s stores you will need to pay for the music, but going directly through the League of Legends site will get you the tracks for free.
The 15-track album combines “new and classic” tracks from the League universe and gives players their first chance to immerse themselves in the world without needing to simply watch a match. The tracks are offered as MP3s, but they’re in the 320kbs format, so it’s as good as an MP3 can get. League of Legends fans around the world will be happy to take a bit of the MOBA’s soundscape with them, wherever they go.
Also, thanks to the League of Legends website, players who really enjoy the music should check out Frequencies, a 46-minute long documentary on the making of the album. The documentary, available on YouTube, is a treat for any fan of the evolution of game scores, or music in general. Following the members of the League of Legends music team, Frequencies gives fans of the game some great insight on how music is created for a video game.
In addition to Frequencies, Riot has released a music video celebrating one of League of Legends most beloved champions, Amumu. The Curse of the Sad Mummy wasn’t created as part of a marketing ploy, according to composer Christian Linke. Rather, the video was created simply as a way to give back to fans of the game.
