The latest title in the Ubisoft’s long-running stealth-action game franchise, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, is set to take the world by storm when it does arrive. The Viking aspect of the new title will no doubt appeal to those who are enamoured with the ancient Nordic peoples, or just those who like the idea of flinging tomahawks while using hidden blades at the same time.
But what would a game about Vikings be without some proper Viking music? As such, it’s only befitting that Einar “Kvitrafn” Selvik, the composer for the Vikings TV series, has come on board to create the score for Valhalla. He will join Assassin’s Creed composing veterans, Jesper Kyd (Assassin’s Creed II, Brotherhood, Revelations) and Sarah Schachner (Assassin’s Creed Origins), in scoring the game.
The Norwegian musician provided his expertise as lead composer for eleven episodes of the historical drama, as well as lent his vocals across the show’s six seasons. He even has knowledge of “ancient Norse instruments”, which will essentially makes him a no-brainer for this project.
While we’re not entirely sure to what capacity Selvik will be involved with the music of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, we can certainly expect him to have a major influence in its production.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is rumoured for an October 2020 release, but Ubisoft has yet to give a formal announcement.

Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
