When Assassin’s Creed Unity announced it’s season pass, one of the more interesting bits of information released was a new game, a 2.5 Sidescroller called Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China. AC:China was set to follow Shao Jun, one of the last remaining members of the Chinese Brotherhood and Student of Assassin’s Creed 2’s Ezio Auditore, during the fall of the Ming Dynasty in 1526.
It turns out that Shao Jun isn’t the only Assassin we’ll be seeing as Ubisoft has expanded the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles game to three regions, China, India and Russia, bringing Arbaaz Mir and Nikolaï Orelov to the series. Arbaaz Mir’s story is set in India in 1841, as the Sikh Empire finds itself at war. Nikolaï Orelov’s story is set in 1918, in the aftermath of Russia’s October Revolution. Each of the Chronicles games will have their own art style and story.
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles China will still be available for free to those who purchased the Assassin’s Creed Unity season pass, for everyone else will have to pay $9.99 for the first game in the new series. Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China will be available April 21st, with the other chapters to follow some time after.
