Soundtrack release for Assassin’s Creed IV: Freedom Cry

On May 12, Ubisoft will release the soundtrack for Freedom Cry, a fully-fledged downloadable content story for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag – Freedom Cry. Composed by AGMA 2013 winner Olivier Deriviere, the soundtrack boasts lush composition and production values that easily rivals Brian Tyler’s main soundtrack for the game.

Taking 15 years after the events of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Freedom Cry follows trained assassin Adéwalé who comes face-to-face with some of the most brutal slavery in the West Indies after finding himself shipwrecked in Saint-Domingue, where he comes face-to-face with some of the most brutal slavery in the West Indies.

To reflect the clash of cultures for the title, Deriviere combined traditional Haitian music recorded with La Troupe Makandal with European-influenced orchestrations performed by the Brussels Philharmonic. This fusion is evident from the soundtrack samples above.
