Honor of Kings revealed that the first volume of its original game soundtrack will be released digitally worldwide on January 25. This release is the first time the game's music has been officially available on the international market. While the game is developed by TiMi Studios, the music is being produced by TiMi Audio. TiMi Audio is the one responsible for the design and production of all audio modules not only for this game, but all TiMi titles.

The album has 16 tracks, with the music being composed by Thomas Parisch, Edwin Wendler, Matthew Carl Earl, Neal Acree, Jeff Broadbent, Hiromi Mizutani, Miles Hankins, Moeki Harada, Obadiah Brown-Beach, and Hongfei Zhao. Zhao also serves as the music director. The album even has rearranged themes from Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe.

In a statement, Head of TiMi Studios Audio Center Sam Yang said that the game remains to be one of the most beloved in China and one of the key elements to the success of Honor of Kings has been the music. He went on to say that the "talented roster of composers created a score that elevates the player's experience" and that by releasing it to a worldwide audience hopes that "a new audience will discover this amazing music."

In order to make the soundtrack happen, TiMi had the help of Unisonar, who assisted in assembling the talent. Vivita Zheng, who serves as Unisonar managing director and producer, said that they have been working with TiMi on Honor of Kings and knew that the score came with a unique sound. Zheng added that they "wanted all music fans to enjoy this original score, not just the gamers who have listened to it billions of times during game sessions."

In terms of the music, TiMi had been able to work with different composers around the world and this is why the company wanted to offer the soundtrack to more than its already massive playerbase. According to composer Thomas Parisch, it's "the synergy of composers and musicians from both east and west that gives the music of Honor of Kings true international appeal." While it was indeed challenging being a Western composer, he said that ultimately it was an enriching experience to be part of the project.
