Assassin's Creed Gets Kyd Score

Famed Hitman series composer and British Academy Award winner Jesper Kyd will compose the score for Ubisoft Montreal's upcoming historical hitman action title Assassin's Creed (PC, PS3, X360), Ubisoft announced today. Kyd is known for his work on Io Interactive's Hitman series of games as well as another of the studio's properties, Freedom Fighters (PC, PS2, GCN, Xbox).

Kyd worked with Io again on the studio's upcoming heist shooter Kane & Lynch: Dead Men (PS3, X360), and his other projects include scoring Epic's forthcoming Unreal Tournament 3 (PC, PS3, X360) and Bizarre Creations' upcoming third-person shooter The Club (PC, PS3, X360).

Assassin's Creed is expected to retail for the consoles sometime in November, while the PC version was recently delayed until early 2008. For more on the much-hyped title, check out the Shack's own preview.
