Assassin’s Creed is finally going to Asia in three upcoming games.
Ubisoft has announced that Climax Studios is working with Ubisoft Montreal to make three smaller games collectively called Assassin’s Creed Chronicles. All these will have unique art styles in a 2.5D environment.
The first game will be set in China during the end of the Ming Dynasty around 1644. The other two games include Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia, which takes place after the Red October Revolution in 1917, and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India, which will take place in 1849.
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on April 21 in the Americas while Europe will see the release on April 22. The Russia and India games will be released later. The games will cost $10 apiece, and those with the Assassin’s Creed: Unity Season Pass will be able to download them for free.
I hope that Ubisoft can make these games great. It seems to be games that are more fitting for a handheld like the Vita, but it is nice to see them for only $30 collectively. This also means we are one step closer to Ninja Assassins. I am excited about that. Just a little further, Ubisoft.
