Assassin's Creed: Shadows Original Soundtrack Composer Announced!

Ubisoft Co., Ltd. has announced the composers who worked on the original soundtrack for “Assassin's Creed: Shadows.” Four exclusive tracks will be released on the following platforms on June 14th.

Following the gameplay footage revealed at Ubisoft Forward, we are introducing the artists who will be helping to create the music that will bring the world of Assassin's Creed: Shadows to life. With different backgrounds, genres to pursue, and influences to align with, they have come together to create an immersive, surprising, and memorable original soundtrack for the game. Details of the three composer teams and their work to date are below:

Following on from their work on Assassin's Creed Odyssey, musical duo The Flight, comprised of Joe Henson and Alexis Smith, are once again composing original music for Assassin's Creed: Shadows. Working closely with the team at Ubisoft, the duo have developed a distinctive sound that incorporates traditional Japanese instruments and musicians, while also using a modern style to fit the game's world.

Ubisoft Québec*1 also worked closely with Montreal-based Japanese psychedelic rock group TEKE::TEKE to create several original songs for the game. The group combines traditional Japanese instruments with flutes, trombones, raging guitars and cinematic vocals to create music reminiscent of psychedelic Japanese soundtracks from the 1960s and 1970s. TEKE::TEKE's experimental yet considered approach creates emotive soundscapes that provide unexpected surprises in the music you'll enjoy throughout the game.

Ubisoft Québec is bringing together a vast and diverse range of sounds, songs, cultures and voices to create a single, immersive and surprising musical experience for all to hear in the game. The first EP release features some of the game's most iconic songs, including a unique and original arrangement of the series theme “Ezio's Family” by TEKE::TEKE.
