A launch trailer has been released for Assassin’s Creed: Chronicles – China, just a day before its official release.
The first chapter in the “Chronicles” will focus on the downfall of the Ming dynasty. Players will fill the shoes of Shao Jun, the last remaining Assassin of the Chinese Brotherhood, who is returning to China in 1526 after the events of the short film Assassin’s Creed: Embers.
Assassin’s Creed: Chronicles – China will release for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on April 21 in both North and South America, followed by a release in European territories a day later.
The remaining two installments in the trilogy will release as separate entries sometime in the future. Assassin’s Creed: Chronicles – India will take place under the waring Sikh Empire, while the chapter for Russia will be set during the aftermath of the Red October revolution.
Assassin’s Creed: Chronicles – China will be free for all those who previously have purchased the cancelled Assassin’s Creed: Unity Season Pass. Otherwise each chronicle will be priced at $9.99. Note that purchasing the game’s own Season Pass will also entitle you to Assassin’s Creed: Chronicles – China as a free download.
Climax Studios is collaborating with Ubisoft Montreal over the development of the Chronicles Trilogy. Each game will be connected with the Assassin’s Creed lore and feature 2.5D perspective action platforming. The real visual treat here is that each game is going to bring its own distinct art style.
