Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Soundtrack Trailer Debuts

Ubisoft is celebrating the release of the main theme from the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla soundtrack with a new version of its announcement cinematic trailer. Featuring a remix of the main theme tune, the trailer follows Eivor, a fierce Viking raider (a choice of male or female), as they battle their way through King Alfred’s Saxon army.

Composed by Sarah Schachner and Jesper Kyd featuring Einar Selvik, the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla soundtrack main theme will be the opening track to the The Ravens Saga EP (buy at Amazon).

The Ravens Saga is the second seven-track EP taken from the official Assassin’s Creed Valhalla soundtrack. Featuring original compositions from Jesper Kyd, Sarah Schachner, and two original tracks by Einar Selvik, the EP is now available to stream on Spotify and purchase on iTunes.

The full The Ravens Saga EP tracklist includes:

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Main Theme (feat. Einar Selvik) – Sarah Schachner, Jesper Kyd

Son of Fjord – Jesper Kyd

Asgard – Hall of the Aesir (feat. Einar Selvik) – Sarah Schachner

Hausbrjótr – Skullcrusher – Einar Selvik

Odin’s Plunder – Sarah Schachner

The Well of Wyrd – Jesper Kyd

Vígahugr – Lust for Battle (Skaldic Version) – Einar Selvik

On composing the main theme, Sarah Schachner said that, “We wanted the atmosphere of the theme to instantly transport the listener to another time and place, filled with mystery and uncertainty. 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.”

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