Early 2016 will bring the releases for the last two installments of the 2D platforming Assassin’s Creed Chronicles series.
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India comes out on January 12, and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia comes out on February 9. They will join Assassin’s Creed Chronicles China, which came out in April.
In ACC: India, you play as Arbaaz Mir, who you might recognize as the father of Henry Green, one of the main characters of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. In 1841, Mir tries to recover a powerful item from the Templar who stole it, while protecting his comrades and lover. The story takes place against the backdrop of conflict between the Sikh Empire and the East India Company.
ACC: Russia hops forward to 1918, with Assassin Nikolaï Orelov also trying to recover an artifact held by Bolshevik forces, who also hold the Tsar’s family prisoner. He ends up needing to bring both the artifact and the princess Anastasia to safety.
The lead of ACC: China is Shao Jun, an Assassin who escapes prison and vows revenge on the Templars in China. Each of the game costs $9.99 when purchased separately, but they will be bundled together as The Assassin’s Creed Chronicles Trilogy Pack for $29.99, starting February 9 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
On April 5, the Trilogy Pack will come out for the PlayStation Vita.
The Assassin’s Creed Chronicles series is notable for using art and color to reflect the time period and setting of each game. We’re used to seeing Assassin’s Creed stories told with cutting-edge graphics, but the Chronicles games are more intimate, but still intricately designed.
