Ubisoft has revealed that not one, but three Assassin’s Creed Chronicles games will be dropping this year!
The first, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China was already known to exist, and will be coming to digital storefronts on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on April 21st, for $9.99. It will also be awarded free to anyone who has already bought the Season Pass for Assassin’s Creed: Unity on any of these platforms. Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China takes place in 1526, during the fall of the Ming Dynasty, and will star the series’ second female assassin, Shao Jun.
The second game, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India, will take place in 1841, when war breaks out within the Sikh Empire. It will star a male assassin called Arbaaz Mir. This game will be followed by a third, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia, which will take place in 1918, during the aftermath of Red October, starring another male assassin, Nikolai Orelov. As with Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, these two games will cost $9.99, and will come to the same three platforms, though don’t appear to be offered free to buyers of Assassin’s Creed: Unity’s Season Pass. They are planned for launch some time in 2015, but have no specific window yet.
All three games will boast their own distinct art style, and will unfold from a 2.5D play perspective. They will also be developed by Climax Studios, in collaboration with Ubisoft Montreal, who have overseen most of the annualized mainline entries in the Assassin’s Creed series.
Ubisoft is also preparing a new mainline retail entry for the Assassin’s Creed series in 2015, which was leaked early a couple of months back, before Ubisoft officially announced it. The game was revealed to take place in Victorian-era London, with the game currently being dubbed Assassin’s Creed: Victory, with Ubisoft Quebec taking over development duties for Ubisoft Montreal this time. This new game is planned to launch this Fall for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
