Ubisoft has announced an Assassin's Creed Chronicles trilogy, which will take place in China, India and Russia respectively, following three different Assassins.
The trillogy is not the AAA massive Assassin's Creed experience we see released every year, but instead something smaller, specifically 2.5D spin-offs taking place in different places and time periods throughout history. For example, the China one will take place during the downfall of the Ming Dynasty, the India one will see the Sikh Empire preparing a war in India, while the Russian version will see the aftermath of the Red October revolution. Each chronicle has its own setting, plot, assassin and art style, but somehow still have a connection via storyline with the others.
The protagonists are Shao Jun from the animated short Assassin's Creed Embers, Arbaaz Mir and Nikolai Orelov from the Assassin's Creed graphic novels. When I mentioned different art-style I meant each uses a certain signature look, from brush paintings to China, vibrand colors of India, and a propaganda style for Russia.
The games are in development by Climax Studios in collaboration with Ubisoft Montreal. They are slated for release on April 21 in North and South America, and April 22 in EMEA territories, and will be made available on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The first in the series will be China, followed by India and lastly Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia will see the light of day.
