Winifred Phillips, the composer behind the highly praised Assassins Creed III: Liberation soundtrack has been awarded a Game Audeio Network Guild Award for her work on the Vita title.

The 'Main Theme' music from Assassins Creed III: Liberation won the award in the category of '2012 Best Original Vocal Song - Choral'. The soundtrack has received heaps of praise since the games release and has picked up other accolades including a Global Music Award, a Hollywood Music in Media Award and a 'Best Composer of 2012' award for Philips from GameMusic.net.

It seems that gamers had something of a love-hate relationship with Liberation, but there is no denying that the soundtrack is a beautifully crafted piece of art. If you haven't heard it, do yourself a favour and have a listen to this [SOURCE]

In October, Ubisoft set out to prove Sony’s new handheld, the PS Vita, was capable of delivering an Assassin’s Creed experience on par with its console counterpart. But though we thoroughly enjoyed our time with Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation, we enjoyed its soundtrack even more.

YouTube user PragPD has uploaded soundtrack samples of Assassin's Creed III: Liberation (Winifred Phillips) and Assassin's Creed III (Lorne Balfe) for your listening pleasure. The overall product of both scores sounds, once more, amazing, particularly the main themes for both games (AC3 carries all the usual the Modern Warfare motifs one might be used to hearing from Lorne Balfe as a result of his affiliation with Hans Zimmer). Liberation's approach is quieter, perhaps placing more emphasis on stealth (though it is not without action themes), while Creed III centralizes its motifs on strong preucssion and sinister undertones. From there mere samples alone, both scores sound like must buys from the get go. Be aware that some track listings may contain spoilers.
