With the first episode in the series, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, having been released in April 2015, Ubisoft has announced that both Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia, the respective second and third installments to the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles trilogy, will be available for download in early 2016 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. A special trilogy pack for the listed systems, and the PS Vita at a later date, will also be made available in early 2016.
A collaboration between developers Climax Studios and Ubisoft Montreal, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles takes players through three distinct civilizations at tremulous 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. Bringing on the thrill of being a Master Assassin in 2.5D, each installment stands alone with a unique setting, art style, story, and Assassin, but are all interwoven by narrative.
In the second episode, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India, players are plunged into the tense relations between the Sikh Empire and the East India Company in 1841. When a Master Templar arrives with a mysterious item previously owned by the Assassin Order, Arbaaz Mir must discover why the Templar has come, steal back the item, and protect his friends and his lover.
In the third and final episode, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia, players are taken to 1918 where Assassin Nikolaï Orelov must complete one last mission for the Assassin Order before he can leave with his family. His mission: infiltrate the house where the tsar’s family is being held captive by the Bolsheviks and steal an artifact that has been fought over by Assassins and Templars for centuries. While too late to save the tsar’s entire family, Nikolaï manages to save the princess, Anastasia, whom he must protect as he escapes the Templars with her and the artifact in his possession.
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia will be available for digital download for $9.99 per episode on January 12th and February 9th, 2016, respectively.
The Assassin’s Creed Chronicles Trilogy Pack for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC will be available for download for $29.99 starting February 9 and at retailers for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The Assassin’s Creed Chronicles Trilogy Pack will also be available for the PS Vita on April 5th.
