Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China will be the first in a new trilogy of episodic Assassin’s Creed titles, Ubisoft has announced.
The game will release digitally in Europe on April 22 on PS4, Xbox One and PC, with Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia both due to follow by autumn 2015.
All three games are being created by Silent Hill: Shattered Memories developer Climax Studios in collaboration with Ubisoft Montreal, and promise to deliver a new 2.5D “tension-filled stealth” experience inspired by games in the Metroidvania genre.
“Assassin’s Creed Chronicles take players to three distinct civilizations and periods throughout history including the Ming dynasty at the start of its downfall, the Sikh Empire as it prepares for war in India, and the aftermath of the Red October revolution,” says Ubisoft.
“Designed for masters of stealth who share a passion for rewriting history with games, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles let players embody Assassins Shao Jun, Arbaaz Mir, and Nikolaï Orelov in a 2.5D reimagining of the Assassin’s Creed universe.
