The “hero’s theme… “

Following The Flight‘s announcement that the duo will be scoring the soundtrack to the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, the game’s main theme has now been unveiled.

Legend of the Eagle Bearer” is the main theme music to the latest instalment in the Assassin’s Creed series, set in ancient Greece.

Speaking to Variety, the composers touched on the atmosphere of the track, and what the music is trying to convey to the player.

“This is the hero’s theme; conveying their journey,” said The Flight. “Brought up as a proud Spartan, they are then left to find their own path. Using instruments that shared their DNA with those of Ancient Greece, we wanted to compose a dynamic, modern score infused with the essence of the time period.”
