Last year, Ubisoft announced Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, a 2.5D interpretation of the Assassin’s Creed franchise taking place in ancient China. Now two more settings are being added to the mix.
Ubisoft announced on their blog today that Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia will join the already announced Assassin’s Creed: China, creating a trilogy composed of the three.
While China will feature Shao Jun of the Chinese Brotherhood (who is trained by none other than Ezio Auditore of Assassin’s Creed II), India will follow Arbaaz Mir, who is out reclaim an artifact from a Templar, and Russia will follow Nikolai Orelov, who is out to complete one final mission before leaving the Brotherhood.
Each character will have their own combat style and tools, but they will all use the 2.5D plane. Players will be able to switch between foregrounds, backgrounds and midgrounds, while navigating branching paths and finding collectibles.
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The first part, China, will be released on April 21 in North and South America, with the UK release the next day. The remaining two parts are set to release in the future. Each part will cost $10 USD, but if you have the Assassin’s Creed Unity Season Pass, the China chronicle will be free.
