In-house composer scores Assassin’s Creed: Rogue
Yesterday, we posted that Chris Tilton and Sarah Schachner’s soundtrack for Assassin’s Creed: Unity (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC) is available for pre-order. The soundtrack for the last-generation version Assassin’s Creed: Rogue (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC) is also now available.
The composer for the soundtrack is Elitsa Alexandrova, an in-house composer and sound designer at the game’s developer Ubisoft Sofia. The artist’s previous credits include Imagine: Fashion Designer, Assassin’s Creed: Liberation (music director), and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (sound designer).
The soundtrack previews indicate that most tracks on the soundtrack will channel the epic Hollywood sound and many of the tracks appear to be brief cinematic cues. The physical soundtrack will be enclosed in the collector’s edition of the game, while a separate digital version will be available upon the game’s release on November 11.

Wouldn’t this technically be the last-gen version now? Since the current gen is now PS4, Xbox One?
Also the samples sound really good so far, looking forward to both Unity and Rogue’s soundtrack!
Personally, I thought the samples sounded really generic. Think they are relying on an in-house person because they didn’t have the budget to bring back Winifred Phillips.
Regarding AC games in general, I’m always sad knowing they won’t call Kyd again.
btw (if you don’t mind) it’s Alexandrova (not Alexandrov). Round these parts that single letter is enough to know whether it’s a man or woman (e.g. Alexandrov would be a man and Alexandrova is a woman).
Thanks for the spot! Knew it was Alexandrova, so I have no idea why I missed out the ‘a’. 😉
I agree that Kyd’s scores for the series were the most creative. Also hope he one day returns to Hitman. Absolution’s score was a complete disaster.
