Ubisoft has announced the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles Trilogy, a set of three games for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC that will take players to China, India, and Russia to follow the stories of three famous Assassins.
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China was originally announced last September as part of Assassin’s Creed Unity‘s season pass. It will be the first game to release on April 21 in North America and April 22 in Europe for $9.99.
The other two games, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia will follow at later dates.
All three games are developed by Climax Studios, and bring the Assassin’s Creed series to the 2.5D realm. Here’s the full outline:
Players will journey to three distinct civilizations and time periods throughout history including the Ming dynasty at the start of its downfall, the Sikh Empire as it prepares for war in India and the aftermath of the Red October revolution. Each chronicle stands on its own with a unique setting, art style, story and Assassin, but is tied together narratively.
Players will embody legendary Assassins, including Shao Jun from the animated short Assassin’s Creed Embers, and Arbaaz Mir and Nikolaï Orelov from the Assassin’s Creed graphic novels. Slay from the shadows, master the art of parkour and take the leap of faith in a collection of stunning, living paintings. Each chronicle has its own artistic signature, from the beautiful brush paintings of China to the vibrant colors of India and the distinctive propaganda art style of Russia.
