The music of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla was nothing beautiful and now there’s even more to enjoy with two new soundtracks from musical geniuses Jesper Kyd and Sarah Schachner. With a total of 61 new tracks to enjoy between the two options alongside new arts, the valhalla audio styles are far from finished offering new surprises.
There are two new options to enjoy: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Sons of the Far North by Jesper Kyd and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Twilight of the Gods. Want to know more? Here’s what you need to know about each of them plus an exclusive first look at two of the new tracks featuring Kyd’s Nightfall in Wessex track and Schachner Voice of Fornburg here at Game Informer.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Sons of the Far North
Son of the Far North by Jesper Kyd offers almost two and a half hours more of music to enjoy. The BAFTA Award winning artist has some impressive credits to his name, including the phenomenal Ezio trilogy and the original Assassin’s Creed game, so the additional tracks to enjoy will be both new and beautifully familiar. Kyd has also worked on a plethora of other gaming adventures including Borderlands, Darksiders, Hitman, State of Decay, and more.
“I am delighted to present the full score of my music for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla,” Kyd tells us. “The album Son of the Far North includes 29 unreleased tracks with almost 2.5 hours of music. My score reflects the brutality of the time imbued with the spirituality of Norse mythology. The vast outdoor natural environments are supported by authentic live instruments, mixed with a modern electronic approach that gives the score a unique sound, an Animus-infused version of the Viking sound. “
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Twilight of the Gods
twilight of the gods by Sarah Schachner features 32 additional tracks in addition to her previous work on the game’s soundtrack. Schachner has incredible talent in television, movies, and games with previous work heard in Assassin’s Creed: Unity, Origins, Anthem and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare as well as other media such as The Lazarus effect.
“twilight of the gods is my complete collection of Valhalla music that will take you from the fjords of Norway, through the hillsides of England, and everywhere in between, “she tells us.” My sheet music represents the mix of Scandinavian and Anglo-Saxon cultures, with hints of Norse Mythology woven throughout. I wanted to create a deep and emotional backdrop for Eivor Journey, and I really enjoyed immersing myself in the story and learning new instruments along the way. “
