Composer Jesper Kyd returns for Assassin's Creed Revelations

Ubisoft has announced that the acclaimed composer Jesper Kyd will be providing the music for the forthcoming Assassin's Creed Revelations.

The British Academy Award-winner, who has provided the music for all of the Assassin's Creed games to date, is working with Lorne Balfe to create a unique, emotional soundscape for the new Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC title.

Reflecting the new game's vibrant Constantinople setting, Kyd's music will combine a variety of musical styles and influences, including Greek, Renaissance and Middle-Eastern instrumentation, as well as acoustic and electronic elements.

The soundtrack is sure to prove a hit with critics, as Kyd's previous Assassin's Creed compositions have been garlanded with accolades such as Gold Spirit, Hollywood Music in Media and Game Audio Network Guild awards.

Assassin's Creed Revelations will be released this November and will be the final chapter in the tale of Renaissance-era master assassin Ezio Auditore.

PlayStation 3 owners took part in a beta trial of the game's revamped multiplayer mode earlier this month.
