I was wondering, does anyone know who is/are composing the soundtrack for ACR?

No Idea...

I think it might be Brian Tyler again given the period.

But it's unknown who the Composer(s) is/are.

And, WELCOME TO THE FORUMS!!!

Doesn't matter at this point.

Rogue soundtrack (from what we've heard) is uninspiring.

Forced in Ezio theme and even the sync theme is so bland....

I would be happy with Tyler or Kyd. I have been searching "Assassin's Creed soundtrack" on Amazon Digital Music every day these days. I would imagine, the soundtrack would be out by mid-October given that ACIV's soundtrack came out October 14, 2013 in advance of the game.

Well it could be like the Revelations OST. Jesper Kyd's part of that soundtrack was awesome, but Lorne Balfe's part was more meh (though he did a good job on ACIII).

Are you serious?

We have heard so very little - and from what we heard the ambient music is very nice and so is the naval fighting music.

It takes away Rogue's sense of identity. Same with it having the same HUD as ACIV.

No word on the composer(s) at this point, but whoever they are they're doing a fine job with Rogue, the ambient music is glorious. (Wish they switched places with Unity's composers to be honest).

And some of the people upset with the AC2 theme sampling wouldn't bat an eye if it was AC3's main theme.

The GI interview was never claimed to be official Rogue soundtrack. The Ezio's Family theme being in there wasn't a sample. It was Ezio's family. Someone put that in there during the editing process. Some idiot Editing guy probably just googled AC music.

It was just filler crap for an interview. Nowhere was it said "official ACRogue Soundtrack".

So there is no official evidence that there is recycled music. At all.

It wasn't just Ezio's family tho. It was like Ezio's family then the song transformed into a different theme entirely.

It's a new theme with Ezio's family referenced within it.

I need to relisten to it tho, it's been a while. You have a link?

I don't. But I remember watching it and it was just Ezio's family then it transitioned/faded into a different song. Just because the songs run together doesn't mean they are the same song. They don't want one song to end and then silence for 2 seconds before the next one starts. That's just bad editing.

From what I remember of it. It sounded to me to be Ezio's family. Edited in to a video. No real significance to it.

I can guarantee you they aren't recycling music. The 10 month turd ACRevelations didn't recycle music. I can assure you ACRogue won't either.

Fix the minor problems and things fold together nicely.

I don't hear any difference. It sounds like exactly the same song. They just cut out the vocals. Which can be done pretty easily with sound mixing equipment.

And considering it's an INTERVIEW it makes sense for there to be no Vocals as it's distracting.

But I doubt it will be Ezio's family remixed for the Theme.

Can't say for sure. I don't really follow composers. I only know kyd because people on here treat him like god.

I just don't think vocals should be in background/ambient music. Ezio trilogy music would have been much more bearable without it.


Personally I like the more cinematic style/feeling music like AC4 and AC3 were my favorite ACs when it comes to music.

I trully miss the use of voice his soundtracks had, AC III wasted such potential not taking advantages of more native chants.

To be fair, "Connor's Life" (or rather, the AC3 theme) would be a bit more appropriate since it's tied to the Kenways and what Ubi is now apparently calling the "18th century saga". Ezio has nothing at all to do with the time period or characters.

AC2, ACB and ACR carried over whole tracks from AC1, as well as a handful of variations, they were neither tied to the Ezio trilogy in any way nor did they strip the games of their identities (Acre Underworld is more of a recurring theme than any popular Ezio trilogy track). Home of the Brotherhood is essentially a variation of the Masyaf Castle ambient theme. The death sound you hear in AC2-ACR is directly ripped from the AC1 track 'Animus 1191AD'. Lorne Balfe also composed a variation of his ACR track 'Laboured and Lost' for AC3, and once again lack of identity was never an issue with the game. The list goes on.

I just find this 'identity stripping' an odd and overly dramatic complaint considering the games have been heavily borrowing musical elements from each other ever since AC1.


The Ezio games only had operatic singing because it fit the time period and setting. Listen to AC1 and you'll find none of that.

There was some but it was highly infrequent. Also, operatic is thrown around loosely (not directed at you), Kyd's music was vocal-centric, but far from excessively theatrical. The vocals in most of his tracks were soft and delicately performed (some of ACB and Rome's pre-liberated state being an exception), it wasn't all histrionic wailing unless the nature of the track called for it, I.e a fast paced/tense/action one.

The vocals added a certain charm, soul and memorability to the music, their absence in the newer games made the respective soundtracks hugely devoid of those qualities IMO. Elated to see a hint of the old style return in Rogue though, won't be playing the game but at least there's incentive to download the music.

I actually agree with you there, a lot of people like the track 'Roman Countryside' but I don't, the high pitched singing begins to grind on you after a while. That was the only one I had a problem with, the rest I loved.

It was a good thing the countryside had 2 or 3 different tracks that played in the background, otherwise I'd probably have never stepped foot out of the Centro district in any of my free roam sessions :p

It was EPIC! and the fact that it was a recurring theme throughout the game and cutscenes and was a available in different versions, was just WONDERFUL. Listen to The Revelation from the AC:R OST album, that one was wonderful as well. And I guess we talked about it before but BLEEDING EFFECT from The Lost Archive was heart-shattering.

It's heard on its own only a couple of times (one of the places being the theatre as mentioned), but during sequences 9 and 10 in cutscenes with Haytham it switches between Connor version and Haytham version while they talk (some of the cutscenes also have a dark version of the theme during some intense moments).

-----------

Haytham has got another IMO awesome tune that sadly was absent from the soundtrack: his variation on Welcome To Boston (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FccObUK1p6I) (which is supposed to be ambient music, but they didn't put ambient music in the game outside of missions, so... :( ) The part that starts with 1:50 is especially awesome. Why on Earth this music was absent from the soundtrack is beyond me.

Speaking of awesome variations, Boston Massacre variation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrzefUDcKUE) of Trouble in Town is also awesome. Too bad there's no full version of it :(

Being 100% serious, Shay deserves his "own" theme for sure. The fact this seems to be another recycled asset is sad and the same time not surprising. However, it is plausible to say that if the tune had resembled Connor´s life, the reaction would have been better here.....

No, I'm with you that Shay needs his own theme. But I personally don't care if it resembled Connor's Life, Ezio's Family, Fortune of Edward Kenway, or any other song.

Recycled is Recycled in my book.

going back and watching the twitch streams and I could hear the soundtrack and it sounds like it is composed by Winifred Phillips who did the liberation soundtrack

This is so odd. Less than a month away and we still don't know.

The album is not on Amazon yet either.

It bothers me how literally NOTHING is known about the soundtracks of either AC:U or AC:Ro. I mean yes, we did get some tracks from AC:U soundtrack, but no info. about the composer, no straight answer about which tracks are to be included, no pre-order on the iTunes store..etc. and as for Rogue, it’s like even if it was a compilation of old AC tracks, at least let us know who’s arranging them, who’s remixing or let us listen to some samples, pre-order the album too.


I feel like AC:Rogue is being left for dead before it even happens and I know the game has potential, at least story-wise, which is basically why I’m feeling sorry for it.

Agreed. This is really odd because I feel like we knew much more about the soundtracks from past games ahead of time. With Unity I have to do my best not to watch all the new trailer/leaked footage content that's been rolling out lately but when it comes to the soundtrack...not really much info. And Rogue has been kept quiet in general. It's unusual.

The Unity composers are Chris Tilton, Ryan Amon and Sarah Schachner.

We've known about Unity's composers ever since Loomer revealed their names shortly after E3
There's a load of preview tracks here:

EDIT: also, one of the composers, Sarah Schachner, did some work on Black Flag prior to working on ACU. She composed the tracks Pyrates Beware, Under the Black Flag and a few others.

Does anyone have any new information? The game is only two weeks away. Based on when the Black Flag soundtrack was released (relative to the game), the soundtrack should post to Amazon any day now.

Two weeks away and we haven't heard an OUNCE of Rogue's soundtrack.

SMH.

Chris Tilton and Sarah Schachner are the composers of AC Unity soundtrack volume 1 and 2, respectively. It’s on iTunes for pre-order with samples to stream, as well. Nothing about Rogue, so far.

Really? I mean I’ve been checking the forums periodically and people kept assuming names, but nobody was acting like it was known.

Are you serious?

We have heard so very little - and from what we heard the ambient music is very nice and so is the naval fighting music.

Ikr, was gonna say the same thing. Bit harsh saying tis blend when its not even released for another week. Thanks Shan's
