As everyone knows Assassin’s Creed 2 is set to be released in approximately two weeks. However, the day before the game is released you can listen to the game’s soundtrack. Jesper Kyd is once again in charge and following his atmospheric score for the original Assassin’s Creed, Kyd takes the music in a new direction with A-list musicians and a Hollywood orchestra and choir at the world-renowned Capital Studios. The music will propel the action in the game, captures the allure and mystery of the story and immerses players in the detailed settings.
Patrice Desilets, Creative Director at Ubisoft: “Jesper Kyd’s score for Assassin’s Creed II brings players into the Italian Renaissance by providing a true sense of depth for the poignant moments, while also giving a jolt of adrenaline to the action-packed sequences. We are thrilled to have Jesper Kyd back with us in making Assassin’s Creed II an epic title on all levels.”
Jesper Kyd: “We created a unique musical identity for Assassin’s Creed II that reflects the character and story of Ezio and elevated the music, both in terms of creativity and live production, to a whole new level.”
Assassin’s Creed II is set to hit store shelves in North America on November 17 and throughout Europe on November 20. The Assassin’s Creed II Original Soundtrack will be available for digital download from popular music stores on November 16th.
