Ubisoft's 2.5D Assassin's Creed: Chronicles series will now span three different games each told in a different time period and setting, the publisher announced today. The first game--the only one announced prior to today--is Assassin's Creed Chronicles China. The next two are set in India and Russia.
Each game will follow a famous Assassin, and you can see a brief look at the story and gameplay in the trailer above.
In the China-set game, you play as Shao Jun, who first appeared in the Assassin's Creed Embers animated short. This title is set during the Ming dynasty at the start of its downfall.
The India- and Russia-set games, meanwhile, see players taking on the roles of Arbaaz Mir and Nikolaï Orelov from the Assassin's Creed graphic novels. The India-focused game takes place during the Sikh Empire as it prepares for battle, while the Russia game is set in the aftermath of the Red October revolution.
The three Assassin's Creed Chronicles games feature a unique setting, art style, story, and hero character, but all are tied together narratively, Ubisoft says.
Assassin's Creed Chronicles China will launch on April 21 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. It will cost $10 at release, though people who bought the Assassin's Creed Unity DLC pass will get it free.
Following Assassin's Creed Chronicles China will be the game set in India then the title in Russia. Release dates for those games have not been announced. In addition, Ubisoft did not announce any kind of special bundle that includes all three.
The Assassin's Creed Chronicles series is developed by Climax Studios (Silent Hill: Shattered Memories) with support from Ubisoft Montreal.
As for the core Assassin's Creed series, the next entry in the franchise is rumored to be the Victorian Era London Assassin's Creed Victory.
