Mission: Impossible -- Fallout Composer Lorne Balfe to Conduct and Perform at The Game Awards 2018
At this year's installment of The Game Awards, Mission Impossible: Fallout and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 composer Lorne Balfe will conduct and perform.
With just about one week to go until the big show, anticipation is building for The Game Awards as the show’s fifth installment will see plenty of awards honoring the best games of this year, some exciting new game reveals and, of course, some memorable musical numbers and performances, which will include a notable arrival this year.
In the buildup to the show’s airing next week, The Game Awards creator and host Geoff Keighley has announced that Lorne Balfe, who previously composed the music for games such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, FIFA 19, and this summer’s blockbuster Mission: Impossible — Fallout, will serve as the conductor and musical director for this year’s ceremony.
Aside from directing the musical numbers and performances on stage throughout the show, Balfe himself is also expected to perform at The Game Awards this year. Given his extensive experience conducting and composing across films, video games, and more, it’s sure to set a great mood for the night in honoring the past year in games, especially with his hand in helping to deliver the night’s music and performances.
The Game Awards 2018 will air on December 6, 2018 from Los Angeles. For a recap of this year’s nominees, you can check out the full list here.
