Gear up every one, grab your hidden blades and hoods and prepare for another journey into the shadows! I’ve just stumbled across this, beginning april 22nd ubisoft will be releasing what is known as Assassin’s Creed Chronicles. A series of episodes that shifts (finally!!) the attention east this time as we’ll be getting to stab and sneak around China, India and Russia doing the missions of the brotherhoods located there!
Although it comes in a new perspective, as a side scroller/2.5d it seems, having the possibility to explore more of the brotherhoods, new places and historical settings is more than welcome.
Taken from AC: Chronicles site:
“Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China takes place in China, 1526, as the Ming dynasty starts to crumble. You embody Shao Jun, the last remaining Assassin of the Chinese Brotherhood, returning to her homeland with a vendetta. Newly trained by the legendary Ezio Auditore, she is hell-bent on exacting vengeance and restoring her fallen Brotherhood.”
“Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India throws you into the tension between the Sikh Empire and the East India Company in 1841. When a Master Templar arrives with a mysterious item that used to belong to the Assassin Order, Arbaaz Mir must discover why he’s come, steal back the item, and protect his friends and his lover.”
“Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia occurs in Russia, 1918. Nikolai Orelov wants to leave with his family, but is required to perform one last mission for the Assassin Order: infiltrate the house where the tsar’s family is being held by the Bolsheviks and steal an artifact that has been fought over by Assassins and Templars for centuries. Along the way, he witnesses the massacre of the tsar’s children, but manages to save the princess, Anastasia. He must escape the Templars while protecting the artifact and Anastasia.”
