Ubisoft has unveiled the main theme tune for Assassin's Creed Valhalla with a new version of its cinematic trailer. This is the same trailer revealed for the game's announcement, so the main draw here is really the theme tune composed by Jesper Kyd and Sarah Schachner, featuring Einar Selvik.

The theme tune reveal also coincides with the release of a new seven-track EP taken from the official Assassin's Creed Valhalla soundtrack, titled 'The Ravens Saga'. The EP is available to stream on Spotify or purchase via iTunes, featuring the main theme, two original tracks from Einar Selvik, and more.

"We wanted the atmosphere of the theme to instantly transport the listener to another time and place, filled with mystery and uncertainty," said composer Sarah Schachner. "There are Norse instruments, but they are used in a more modern way. The theme represents Eivor’s journey as well as the Vikings’ hope for a better life as they move further south into the Anglo-Saxon regions."

Here's the track listing from The Ravens Saga EP:

  1. Assassin's Creed Valhalla Main Theme (feat. Einar Selvik) - Sarah Schachner, Jesper Kyd
  2. Son of Fjord - Jesper Kyd
  3. Asgard – Hall of the Aesir (feat. Einar Selvik) - Sarah Schachner
  4. Hausbrjótr - Skullcrusher - Einar Selvik
  5. Odin’s Plunder - Sarah Schachner
  6. The Well of Wyrd - Jesper Kyd
  7. Vígahugr - Lust for Battle (Skaldic Version) - Einar Selvik

"We wanted to evoke Eivor's journey, what drives them and the bond they have with their family," Jepser Kyd added. "Eivor is searching for something and this longing to find it and resolve it is a key element reflected in the melody and mood."

Assassin's Creed Valhalla launches for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on 17th November, before heading to Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 as a next-gen launch title in holiday 2020 (both available as free current to next-gen upgrades).
