This is how the musical theme of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla sounds, composed by Jesper Kyd

The Ubisoft theme by Jesper Kyd is named after Out of the North and will be available on July 17.

The expectation around Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla is not only related to its history, missions or graphic section, but also due to the return of a musician well-liked by the community, Jesper Kyd, who will also team up with another distinguished composer from the industry, Sarah Schachner. That is why it is worth listening to the song Out of the North that has already been released.

“Out of the North is the main theme for Norway,” Jesper Kyd explained to Game Informer magazine. “I wanted to capture the feeling of a rough and vast landscape, filled with fjords, mountains, snow and ice, combined with a powerful sense of family and community, that would deliver the feeling of living like a Viking with enduring beliefs. They are a proud people with a great destiny, enormous ambitions and a firm belief in their way of life, “he added.

And boy, does the melody live up to not only what one would expect from a Jesper Kyd composition, but of course, from a Nordic melody, with the unmistakable presence of emblematic instruments, such as the rabel, flute and percussions, seasoned with synthetic and vocal sounds that give it a modern touch.

At 48 years old, composer Jesper Kyd has participated in some of the most beloved instalments in the Assassin’s Creed saga, including Assassin’s Creed II and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. Kyd is from Denmark, making the concept behind Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla seem even more ad hoc to the composer. The game’s soundtrack will be available on July 17 and the game on November 17.
