As you probably know, I am a huge fan of the AC3 Soundtrack by Lorne Balfe. It’s just epic in my eyes – and ears.
I recently became aware of a very talented hobby (self-proclaimed) musician, who feels inspired by great games to create great unoffical music to go with it. This isn’t his only great piece, since he also did a piece for Battlefield 3, but I think I like this one even better. On Youtube, some even call him a genius.
What he can do is create a perfect atmosphere for the gameplay video which goes with it. My goosebump factor is 7/10, and that’s not too easy to achieve. So perhaps one day we get a chance to present you, John, in person here – we hope so.
So for AC3 he did it again. He created a beautiful, melodic and dramatic piece called “Rise”. Take a look and a listen.
