Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India


The well known game, Assassin’s Creed, will be releasing a new breed within its franchise on January 12th of this year. Whether you like the games or not, I strongly believe Assassin’s Creed has become a game-making monster. Take that as you will but since 2007 there has been 9 games released within the main series of Assassin’s Creed.  A typical gamer cannot go out to his/her local game store without being asked if he/she wants to pre-order the newest Assassin’s Creed, are they beating a dead horse? That’s for you to decide.


Now that you have absorbed all of that, Assassin’s Creed is really trying to make their name a part of the platforming world. With indie platformers uprising in the gaming world, it was only a matter of time before Assassin’s Creed jumped on the bandwagon. The title is Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India and it will be available to download on PC, Xbox One and PS4 on January 12th of 2016.  It is being called a 2.5d, action,stealth,hybrid, platformer. Heavens to Betsy! That was a mouth full.

The game looks beautiful and is the second chronicle in the trilogy. It takes place in 19th-century India, at the height of British control while tensions were quickly escalating between the Sikh Empire and the East India Company. It follows the story of the assassin, Arbaaz Mir, as he fights to stop a Master Templar from stealing the famed Koh-i-noor diamond, and works to steal back a mysterious box that belonged to the Assassin Order. You are given a unique set of skills and must learn to utilize your stealth abilities to successfully progress. The game also lets you gain XP through stealth and action, so you can level up and improve your abilities.


Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India will only be available to download on next gen consoles and PC.  I personally love platformers, I mean, who doesn’t? It is where most of us started, in terms of gaming.  If you enjoyed the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, I am sure you will enjoy Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India.
