PUBG, the highly successful Battle Royale game, has made its theme music available to stream and download from today. The theme music can be recognized by anyone who has played the game, and now you can listen whenever you want. Tom Salta, AKA Atlas Plug, has written the song. You might not know his name but will be more than likely be familiar with his work. He has written music for games like LawBreakers, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, and Halo: Spartan Assault, as well as the animated series Halo: The Fall of Reach.
Salta said in an interview that it was an “exciting challenge” to write music that successfully expresses the intense nature of PUBG, the game. “I really hope the fans enjoy it as much as I did writing and producing it!” he said.
“We were looking for an orchestral electronic hybrid theme that would give players a huge build-up keeping them resolutely determined until the beginning of actual gameplay,” Bluehole audio director Haejin Lee said, via Gamespot.
“I’ve worked with many composers and Tom is one of the most energetic collaborators I’ve ever worked with. During his composition process, he came up with something even better than what we had envisioned,” Lee added. Lee also mentioned that she along with PUBG creator Brendan Greene personally picked Salta to write the theme music for the Battle Royale game.
