Lakeshore Records Teams With Ubisoft To Release Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Sons of the Great North

Lakeshore Records in partnership with Ubisoft have released Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Sons of the Great North featuring music by BAFTA Award-winning Danish music artist Jesper Kyd, the beloved composer of the Ezio trilogy as well as the first Assassin’s Creed. Kyd considers this album to be his definitive complete score to the game which includes all of the tracks on the original game soundtrack, plus 29 extras—almost 21/2 hours of music. 

Says Kyd: “I’m excited to present the full score of my music for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The album ‘Sons of the Great North’ includes 29 previously unreleased tracks with almost 2 1/2 hours of music. My score reflects the brutality of the era infused with the spirituality of Norse mythology. The vast outdoor natural environments are supported by authentic live instruments, mixed with a modern electronic approach which gives the score a unique sound, an Animus-infused take on the Viking sound.”

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is now available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One consoles, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, the Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Store on Windows PC, as well as on Stadia, Amazon Luna and Ubisoft’s subscription service, Ubisoft+.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla offers players the captivating experience of playing as Eivor, a legendary Viking warrior, driven from Norway by endless wars and dwindling resources in ninth century AD. Players can relive the ruthless fighting style of Viking warriors with a revamped dual-wielding combat system and experience new gameplay features such as raids, assaults, and the settlement, as well as a revamped progression and gear upgrade system.
