Sebastien Najand, the principal composer at Riot, has teamed up with Alex Seaver of Mako to pen this year's epic Worlds anthem, a tradition they have upheld for previous years with classics like RISE, Legends Never Die, and Awaken. They have also joined forces to produce several heart-pounding soundtracks for the Arcane TV series.
