At the end of this year we can get started with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. In the new game in the long-running series, we take a closer look at the world of the Vikings. And of course that also includes a new soundtrack.
From the previous parts in the series I never got a lot from the soundtrack. But because Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is set in the time of the vikings, the whole thing is a bit more bombastic. And that’s what publisher Ubisoft wants to convey with this soundtrack.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla soundtrack sounds nice
The new trailer features the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla-mainthem, among other things. This song was composed by Sarah Schachner and Jesper Kyd in collaboration with Einar Selvik and is the opening song of the game. Schachner and Kyd are best known for game soundtracks and have worked independently on games such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Anthem, Borderlands 3 and several other games within the Assassin’s Creed series. In the video below, a few songs are in the spotlight.
If after seeing the trailer below you think ‘I want to hear more about that’, then we have good news. You can already enjoy part of the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla soundtrack via The Ravens Saga EP. This can be streamed on Spotify and consists of seven songs. That way you can already get into the right atmosphere of the game. It concerns these numbers:
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Main Theme (feat. Einar Selvik) – Jesper Kyd
Son of Fjord – Jesper Kyd
Asgard – Hall of the Aesir (feat. Einar Selvik) – Sarah Schachner
Skullcrusher – Einar Selvik
Odin’s Plunder – Sarah Schachner
The Well of Wyrd – Jesper Kyd
Vígahugr – Lust for Battle (Skaldic Version) – Einar Selvik
Wait a little longer
Unfortunately, it is still a while before you can get started with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla yourself. The game is scheduled for release on November 17 and will then be released on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. After that, the game will also be released with the launch of the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X. Players who purchase Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on current consoles will receive a free next-gen upgrade for the Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5. Finally, we have here’s an extensive preview of the game.
