Wait... so Hans Zimmer's doing the soundtrack to this?

That's awesome, and to me personally, it's not really a surprise. When I first thought of Assassin's Creed back in 07, I thought of Gladiator. Anyways, what's happening? Where'd Jesper Kyd go? Are they working together? Or is this relatively new news to everyone else?

I think they should have just got Lisa Gerrard to do the vocals for the theme.

Hans Zimmer usually has one or two really good tracks per soundtrack and the rest are kind of meh.

Hans Zimmer is amazing. My favourite composer alongside Harry Gregson-Williams.

Yeah, Zimmer's shit  is sick.

@Mr_Skeleton: I can kind of agree with that, and since he's so prominent a movie composer, it seems like they utilize him in everything you'd expect now but I think he is one of the best film composers, and it's fantastic he's doing games a bit more now.

Zimmer's partner, Lorne Balfe is only doing the main theme, Kyd is doing the rest of the score.

Thankful Kyd didn't get let go. ACII and Brotherhood soundtracks are amazing work.
