The Free Fire World Series 2021 offline tournament is just around the corner, and to hype things up Garena posted a full, five-minute performance of the Free Fire Theme presented by the Tokyo Studio Symphony over at Kanagawa, Japan.
The orchestrator, Nobuko Toda, has worked on a few triple-A games like Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Halo 5: Guardians, Final Fantasy XIV, Ghost in the Shell SAC_2045, and Ultraman.
The Free Fire theme was originally composed by Ludvig Forssell, the guy behind themes from Death Stranding, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, P.T., and many more.
As a former audio director and in-house composer for Kojima Productions, Forssell knows very well how to translate the game into music. Listen to the Free Fire World Series Special Orchestra theme song:
