If you’re a fan of Jesper Kyd, Assassin’s Creed or Ubisoft’s game soundtracks and you love physical goods, you’ve got reason to celebrate today. Video game music label, Sumthing Else, has announced a multi-title deal with Ubisoft to bring a number of their game soundtracks to CD and vinyl, starting with Assassin’s Creed. Available as of September 25th, the run kicks off with five huge soundtracks:
Assassin’s Creed Original Game Soundtrack by Jesper Kyd
Assassin’s Creed II Original Game Soundtrack (2-CD) by Jesper Kyd
Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood Original Game Soundtrack by Jesper Kyd
Assassin’s Creed Revelations The Complete Recordings (3-CD) by Jesper Kyd and Lorne Balfe
Assassin’s Creed III Original Soundtrack by Lorne Balfe
The remaining titles in the series — Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag (with a separate Sea Shanty album) and Assassin’s Creed Unity Volumes 1 & 2 — will be published in October on CD and select titles on vinyl. While the big focus is on Assassin’s Creed, the deal also covers an array of Ubisoft franchises including Far Cry, Prince of Persia, Rayman and Splinter Cell, all coming soon with details to be announced.
Which Ubisoft albums are you most excited for? I’d personally love to own a Prince of Persia: Sands of Time album and, of course, almost anything from Rayman.
