This probably isn’t the Assassin’s Creed India game you wanted…
You might remember how some time ago, Ubisoft announced a series of sidescrolling Assassin’s Creed spin off games- these games would take us to settings that the games have not yet gone to, including China and Russia and India. The first game in the series, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, launched earlier this year to middling reviews, and things have been silent since, leading many to wonder if Ubisoft may not have silently dropped the idea entirely.
Don’t worry, the other two games are still coming- Ubisoft confirmed today that Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia will both be launching in early 2016.
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India throws players into the tension between the Sikh Empire and the private armies of the British-owned East India Company in 1841. When a Master Templar arrives with a mysterious item that used to belong to the Assassin Order, Arbaaz Mir must discover why the Templar has come, steal back the item and protect his friends and his lover.
The final episode, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia, takes place in 1918 when Assassin Nikolaï Orelov must complete one last mission for the Assassin Order before he can leave with his family. His mission: infiltrate the house where the Tsar’s family is being held by the Bolsheviks and steal an artifact that has been fought over by Assassins and Templars for centuries. While too late to save the Tsar’s entire family, he manages to save the princess, Anastasia, whom he must protect as he escapes the Templars with her and the artifact in tow.
