Hot on the heels of Steve Aoki’s induction into the world of mobile games as a playable character in Star Trek Fleet Command, the international DJ and producer drops an energetic electro-house remix of the World Cyber Games theme, “Beyond The Game.”
The WCG is the world’s first international e-sports tournament. Modeled after the Olympics, the WCG includes an opening ceremony, and bronze, silver and gold medals for competitors from as many as 78 countires. It’s been a few years since the last WCG in 2013, but thanks to a revival from its new owners, South Korean video game developer Smilegate, the WCG is back and bolder than ever.
The original theme was performed in a rock style, something akin to the old ’90s theme of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Aoki electrifies its tune, adds a pounding house rhythm and female vocal power to give the song his signature neon sound. It’s a blood pumping anthem designed to get players in the zone.
In 2019, the WCG comes to Xi’an, China, Sunday to Sunday, July 18 to 21. Learn more about it by visiting WCG.com, and listen to Aoki’s remix of “Beyond The Game” below.
