Ubisoft has announced two brand new games in the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles series featuring Russia and India. They have also announced plans to release the whole trilogy on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Vita as a full bundle.
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles is a side-scrolling 2.5D platformer from Ubisoft that originally launched as a DLC for Assassin’s Creed Unity. The game was then rumored to release for Vita as a Trilogy Bundle and it has finally been confirmed by Ubisoft.
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles will feature three different games set in different time period including India, Russia and China. Each of these games will be available individually for $9.99 or can be bought as a bundle for $29.99.
Following the first episode, which let you explore Ming Dynasty China as Shao Jun, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India is set in 1841, when tensions are coming to a head between the Sikh Empire and East India Company. In the midst of this struggle, Arbaaz Mir (from Assassin’s Creed: Brahman) must protect his friends and lover while trying to recover a mysterious Assassin item that was stolen by the Templars.
In the final installment, we head to early 20th century Russia, where Nikolai Orelov (from Assassin’s Creed: The Fall and Assassin’s Creed: The Chain) is attempting to leave the Assassin Order for a quiet life with his family – but in order to do that, he has to complete one final task for the Brotherhood. When his mission to steal an ancient artifact brings him to a house where the Bolsheviks are holding the Tsar’s family, Nikolai finds himself the temporary guardian of the princess, Anastasia, and must escape the Templars with both Anastasia and the artifact.
You can grab Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India on January 12th and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia on February 9th for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. They will be released as a bundle for the Vita on April 5th.
