New Assassin's Creed: Valhalla Soundtracks Hit Spotify On January 29
The two soundtracks offer a total of 61 unreleased Assassin's Creed: Valhalla songs.
Composers Jesper Kyd and Sarah Schachner, who both worked on the music for Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Valhalla, will drop two new soundtrack albums this Friday on Spotify that are comprised of previously unreleased songs from the open-world Viking adventure, Game Informer reports.
Titled Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Sons of the Great North (Kyd) and Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Twilight of the Gods (Schachner), the two albums offer 61 songs that will transport players all across England to further flesh out Valhalla's soundscape and world.
Composed by the BAFTA Award-winning Kyd, who has also done the music for Assassin's Creed's Ezio Trilogy, Sons of the Great North packs two-and-a-half hours of music that Kyd said "reflects the brutality of the era infused with the spirituality of Norse mythology," according to Game Informer. The album is 29-tracks long of "previously unreleased" music with natural environmental sounds punctuated by live instruments and "mixed with a modern electronic approach which gives the score a unique sound," Kyd said.
Twilight of the Gods, composed by the Anthem and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare music engineer Schachner, will whisk players "from the fjords of Norway, through the hillsides of England, and everywhere in between," Schachner told Game Informer. At 32-tracks in length, the album is an amalgam of Scandanavian and Anglo-Saxon cultures with "hints of Norse mythology woven throughout [to] create a deep and emotional backdrop for Eivor's journey."
Both soundtracks hit Spotify on January 29, with Game Informer previewing two songs before they drop this Friday: Kyd's Nightfall of Wessex track and Schachner's Voices of Fornburg.
In other Assassin's Creed Valhalla news, Ubisoft released Title Update 1.1.1 earlier this month that addresses a large number of graphical bugs and adds various gameplay fixes.
