Los Angeles (January 15, 2015) – Award-winning composer Cris Velasco (Clive Barker’s Books of Blood, Darksiders, God of War) has created the original score for Assassin’s Creed® Unity – Dead Kings, the latest chapter in Ubisoft’s historical action-adventure open world video game series. Set during the French Revolution, Dead Kings is a fully-fledged single-player campaign that continues Master Assassin Arno Dorian’s story after the events of Assassin’s Creed® Unity. The Assassin’s Creed Unity – Dead Kings Original Soundtrack is now available on iTunes.
Cris Velasco’s dark, atmospheric orchestral score for Dead Kings immerses players in the mysterious open-world city of Saint Denis and its underground universe ̶ an ancient necropolis with an intricate network of catacombs and deep caves that hide the darkest secrets of deceased French kings. Three full-length tracks from Velasco’s score are available to preview on SoundCloud.
A prolific and versatile multiple award-winning composer of epic orchestral, dark experimental and modern hybrid music scores for video games, film and television, Velasco is best known for scoring major franchises such as God of War and Mass Effect, as well as his collaborations with celebrated author, filmmaker and painter Clive Barker.
Velasco’s music is performed in concerts worldwide and has received numerous awards and accolades including “Best Original Score” from the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences, “Best Original Music” nomination from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, “Best Original Score for a Video Game or Interactive Media” nomination from the International Film Music Critics Association, NBC News “Best Video Game Music of the Year” and GameTrailers “Best Soundtrack of the Year”.
