Ubisoft and Overlook Events have created an official symphonic concert to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
Ubisoft says the Assassin’s Creed Symphonic Adventure will cover the musical and narrative journey of the Assassin’s Creed games. The concert will feature video montages of the games that are synchonized with the music of a full orchestra, choir and soloists.
This concert was developed by the creative team from Overlook Events, that is also responsible for the acclaimed Dragon Ball & Saint Seiya Symphonic Adventure concerts, alongside Ubisoft’s own creative teams.
“This collaboration with Overlook Events will allow fans to immerse themselves in the rich and powerful world of Assassin’s Creed, as a special celebration of the 15th anniversary,” said Aymar Azaïzia, transmedia and business development Director at Ubisoft. “Overlook brings creative expertise to put together this symphonic concert, using high-quality special effects to enhance the immersion and deliver a thrilling Assassin’s Creed experience.”
Over the past 15 years, the Assassin’s Creed franchise has become globally known for its complex storylines and detailed recreations of historical cities.
“Music has always played a pivotal role in the Assassin’s Creed experience and I’m thrilled to join Overlook Events’ Symphonic Adventures Concert in celebrating the music, mythology and rich stories of the Assassin’s Creed series,” said Jesper Kyd, composer of the video game series.
“I hope you will join us for this exciting new concert production touring in 2022 and beyond.”
The global premiere of Assassin’s Creed Symphonic Adventure begins in Paris, France on Oct. 29, 2022 at the Grand Rex concert venue. An international world tour of the concert is scheduled from early 2023 during the anniversary year.
