The Flight To Preview Assassin’s Creed Shadows Music On June 14th

Looking forward to hearing the full score as the artists involved sound amazing.

Today, Ubisoft announced the composers involved in the making of Assassin’s Creed® Shadows’ original soundtrack. Four exclusive tracks will be made available on Friday 14th at 12:01AM local time on all platforms available on the following page: https://ubisoftmusic.ffm.to/themesofshadows.

After the release of the gameplay walkthrough during Ubisoft Forward, Ubisoft reveals the talents who will craft the musical atmosphere of Assassin’s Creed Shadows. Coming from different backgrounds, exploring different genres and influences, they will strike as one to deliver an immersive, surprising and memorable original soundtrack for players. Three different composers’ teams have been involved:
The music duo The Flight, made up of Joe Henson and Alexis Smith, who previously worked on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, are returning to compose the original score for Assassin’s Creed Shadows. They worked closely with the teams at Ubisoft to incorporate traditional Japanese instruments and musicians into a modern style, creating a unique sound for the Shadows universe
Ubisoft Québec* also worked closely with Montreal-based Japanese psych-rock group, TEKE::TEKE, to create several original songs for the Shadows universe. The band uses traditional Japanese instruments, flute and trombone alongside a frenzied rage of guitars and cinematic vocals, with a sound reminiscent of 1960’s and 70’s-era psychedelic Japanese soundtracks. TEKE::TEKE uses a studied and experimental approach to craft their emotive soundscapes, bringing an unexpected twist to the players’ musical journey all throughout Shadows.
Additionally, Hugo Brijs, Alex Cameron Ward, and Félix Rebaud-Sauer, from composer team Thunderdrum, worked alongside Tiggs Da Author, a Tanzanian-born rapper, singer, songwriter and producer from South London to create a psychedelic rock fusion, bringing an additional layer to the Assassin’s Creed Shadows’ soundtrack.
By blending a large array of sounds, music, influences and voices, Ubisoft Québec wants to create an immersive yet surprising musical tapestry for players to discover in-game. With this first EP, listeners will get to discover the biggest musical themes of the game, including a fully original and unique rendition of the franchise’ theme, Ezio’s Family, by TEKE:TEKE.
The game will be available on Ubisoft+**, PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, Amazon Luna, Macs with Apple silicon via the Mac App Store as well as Windows PC through the Ubisoft Store and the Epic Games Store. Players who subscribe to Ubisoft+ or purchase the Ultimate Edition can get the game three days early on November 12th.
