So, music means a lot to me in the AC universe. Ever since Jesper Kyd's AC2 soundtrack I always had massive expectations for future AC theme songs.

I recently found, what is apparently, the AC:Unity theme song. I apologise if this has already been posted.Have a listen and tell me what you think. I just posted it so we could discuss if this is actually official, and how it compares to other AC themes. I am, personally, quite disappointed.

This is not the official soundtrack. For one it was posted before ACUnity was officially revealed (they posted it on the day of the leaked screens).

You use the word, 'apparently' as though you don't believe it, but you name the thread as if it is 100% the theme of Unity. .__________. am done.

Sounds like a good piece, but I'd rather hear official confirmation from Ubi/AC what the theme is, even if it is leaked.

I'm very sorry, I apologise for that. My mistake.

The main theme tune was on the day 2 comic con trailer. Thats the second time I have heard it. It must me the main theme or one of the songs off the OST

It's definitely one of the songs from the OST but I don't think it's the main theme, it sounds too 'peppy', for want of a better word. I have an inkling this is the main theme: http://youtu.be/zohEED_Grbc

It began playing at the end of the E3 single-player demo, and there was also a slightly extended version of it in the parkour experience video.

Possibly but the one you sent sounds like it could be the battle music in some sense. AC 4 had a peppy main theme tune. Actually, the one I linked has some similarities to AC 4. But so far, all these previews sound awesome.

They do indeed. AC4 had a peppy theme song because it reflected the time period and the piratey vibe they were going for with the game. ACU is notably darker, and a peppy theme would be totally unfitting.

I agree. The one I sent does seem to "happy" to be the main theme but its quite an involved track in terms of standing out so thats why it has made me believe its the main theme tune. I want an emotional theme tune preferably like Ezios Family.

i get a feeling that Unity will have homage tracks to all of the games, they already have one for AC2 and apparently an AC4 like peppy track (that I actually haven't listened to).

Im not sure if that AC 2 one was just for the video they released or it is actually a OST track. It was a different version of Ezio's Family and so I am not too sure thats part of the OST or if it was just used for a video.

Where is that funny video where that fake hacker plays funky music on his computer and insisting it is from AC Unity? :rolleyes:

Ok so the one that played at the end of the e3 demo is gonna be the main theme I think. But I found something that confuses me... I found a track that was released last year... and it's called unity... It has hints of ac2's ezios family and if you listen carefully at 1:18 you hear the exact same hook from the end of the e3 demo and from the preview!

That is really weird. This guy isn't one of the composers working on Unity though. The three are Chris Tilton, Sarah Schachner, Ryan Amon. I don't think its exactly the same but it certainly sounds similar. The one from the trailer is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zohEED_Grbc This one sounds different than the one you sent.

Stephen Anderson composes music for that parkour channel, the track you posted was featured in their newest video:

The only thing I find confusing is that it was released last year. Perhaps he had exclusive access to Unity's music and sampled it? Or maybe it was a recent composition and the date's incorrect?

Like m4r-k7 mentioned, it's three people: Chris Tilton, Sarah Schachner and Ryan Amon.

Alright, awesome! I think I can take the wait. I'm excited to hear the new song also because I'm getting the soundtrack.

this should be the theme of modern day

after all assassins are silent strikers*

*except for that time Ezio blew up a city to flush out one man, Ezio went on a wtf-chase through Constantinople for another man, Connor rushin' across da battlefield for Johnny boy, Desmond just barged through Abstergo's HQ, etc.

I like it. Doesn't really sound like Main Theme material though; it's not really grandiose enough compared to previous themes. Though of course it was only like an 8-second snippet.

Found full version of the main theme. A preview of it was on AC universe youtube page but found full one. Starts off slow but gets good in the midde. Has a hint of Ezios Family in it at some point

EDIT:

Found out its the one by Stephen J Anderson - in that case im not sure if its the real thing xD

It has been already posted on page 2 - http://stephenjanderson.bandcamp.com/track/unity
To me it still doesn't sound like a theme song but I quite like it. Also I don't believe it's legit.
