Last week, Riot Games Music, the music division of leading game publisher Riot Games, treated fans to an interactive album experience celebrating the release of III: Lost Chapter, virtual heavy metal band Pentakill’s first full-length album in four years. Billed as Lost Chapter: An Interactive Album Experience, the first-of-its-kind concert was hosted by virtual entertainment leader Wave, which has developed virtual performances for artists worldwide including The Weeknd, John Legend, Dillon Francis, Alison Wonderland, Tinashe and more. The concert was also streamed on the Twitch channels of Riot Games and influencers, including Tobias Fate, Necrit, loltyler1, AverageJonas, NoWay4u_Sir, Moondays, LoboMolotov, Universo Lúdico, Daniels, Saddummy, and tiankami.
Leveraging Wave’s state-of-the-art broadcast tools and technology platform, the virtual show gave fans a front row seat to experience the sights and sounds of Pentakill like never before – all propelled by interactive VFX and animations with real-time gaming technology by Oscar-winning creative production studio The Mill.
“It’s been great to see the reaction of our fans to Pentakill’s latest album and virtual concert. This is something all of us at Riot are passionate about, and something we’ve been working towards for the last several months — it’s amazing to see it all come to life. Our partners at We Are Royale, Wave, and The Mill all came together and built this show from the ground up for Pentakill fans around the world. This experience is just the beginning of what the future looks like at the intersection of music and gaming.”
