There you go, some of you may have already heard little bits and pieces of it in the demos but here is the full version.

What do you think? Personally, I have to admit that this sounds really beautiful and fitting. It reminded me of the mysterious and eerie feeling of AC. Really reminds me of AC1 and its atmosphere.

Really sounds a lot like Jesper. It's either him or someone who got really inspired by the music of the older games. I think we're in for a kickass soundtrack.

I'd be more interested in seeing the interface, are they going to use the same one as Black Flag and Unity or are they going back to what they were before that, the older ones where better.

I kinda like it, it seems to fit the setting somewhat. A lot of people area saying that this looks like Lorne or Jesper. I'm no specialist in music so for me that is completely different :p
I hope they are right though.

It doesn't sound anything like either of them, people just forgot that Jesper didn't invent opera music and that Lorne knows how to make a good theme :rolleyes:

Personally I don't like this track at all, but from what we've heard in game, the soundtrack isn't too bad. I hate the opera cries though. The piano was a nice touch but too much opera stuff

Yeah, I see a lot of people saying its Kyd on other sites but I'm not really hearing it either. This is very heavy on operatics, feels like a new composer to me.

Also a lot of people are stating that this does not feel 'epic' enough to be a main theme. I believe this is the music from the static screen before the main theme. Like in Unity, you had the initial screen to press X on or whatever, then the main theme kicked in.

Sounds too Lord of the Rings. I thought this was a light-hearted game filled with dudes in funny hats, why do I need church choirs in the menu for that?

AC3 had a sombre theme because it had a sombre theme, setting and story. Black Flag had a robust, moody adventurous theme and AC2 had an adventure theme as well. This one is like the theme of an Epic Battle between good guys and Sauron

Oh come on, this is just the main menu. :rolleyes: ACR had a similar theme and that was an Ezio game. We still don't know much about the story either, maybe it's darker than we've hitherto imagined.

Anyway, I'm not getting Jesper vibes from this, but it's still nice.

sounds just like some remixed opera piece
concept art cuts look nice though

Found it a bit boring to be honest. Just two minutes of fairly standard operatic singing.

But what do I know about music.

You people are never pleased. :rolleyes: At least it's not yet another variation on "Ezio's Family".

Very true Sixkeys.

But it does sound very different, which makes it interesting to me :)
