Ubisoft announced today with a press release the upcoming launch of Assassin’s Creed Chronicles Trilogy as a series of downloadable titles for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Developed by Climax Studios, the first game will launch on April 21st in North America and April 22nd in China, and will be Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, which was included in Unity‘s season pass. Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia will follow at later dates as separate releases.
Developed by Climax Studios in collaboration with Ubisoft Montreal, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles brings the thrill of being a Master Assassin to 2.5D. 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.
China will cost $9.99, but will of course be free for those that purchased the Assassin’s Creed Unity season pass.
