Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Ubisoft’s triple-threat release

31 Mar 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles announced, 2.5D antics in China, Russia, India.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China was supposed to be part of the season pass for Assassin’s Creed Unity, but when Ubisoft had to give away DLC Dead Kings to compensate for all the launch problems they also had to scrap the pass. China will still be the first game to be released, with an adventure set during the downfall of the Ming dynasty (which Wikipedia says is mid-17th century but the trailer identifies as 1526). This 2.5D, side-scrolling spin-off is still on the way as a freebie for season-pass holders, and will be available separately for $10 in late April, but that’s only the beginning.

The China title, of course, can trace its announcement back to the ill-fated Assassin’s Creed: Unity season pass (ultimately given away to all buyers of that game as an apology for how appallingly it ran.) Anybody who purchased Assassin’s Creed: Unity should wind up with this first title for free. China’s outing will star Shao Jun from the Embers animation, while India and Russia will feature Kashmiri Arbaaz Mir and Nikolaï Orelov (respectively) from some Assassin’s Creed graphic novels. In typical style for the series, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles will be dropping players into some of the most politically turbulent periods for each country. Each game is also going to have its own art style (which you can see in the announcement trailer below.) Russia, for example, is taking some cues from the propaganda posters of the WW1 era.

It’s not overly clear how each of these games will play yet, aside from the clues in the video that platforming, sword-play and (in Russia at least) gun shots will be employed. 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. 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. Fast and Fluid Assault Course – Whether you’re running from danger, scaling obstacles, or climbing stealthily, you will feel that you really can do anything. Master Three Different Combat Styles – Each Assassin is equipped with a powerful range of weapons and distinct gadgets, making every experience unique, with a wide assortment of abilities in your arsenal.

Assassin Arbaaz Mir (from the AC: Brahman graphic novel) stars in this 1841 adventure set amid the conflict between the Sikh Empire and East India Company. The final entry wasn’t available to play, but we know that Nikolai Orelov stars as an assassin helping to rescue the Tsar’s daughter and escape with an artifact. He stands apart from the other protagonists with his sniper rifle shots; it will be interesting to see how this long-range weapon changes the gameplay.
