Press Release as follows:


ASSASSIN’S CREED® CHRONICLES TRILOGY REVEALED

First Chronicle to release in April

London, UK — March 31, 2015 — Today, Ubisoft® announced the Assassin’s Creed® Chronicles trilogy, which will take players to China, India and Russia and follow the stories of three cult Assassins. The first chronicle, set in China, will be available April 22 in the UK for download on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC. Assassin’s Creed® Chronicles: China will be followed by Assassin’s Creed® Chronicles: India and Assassin’s Creed® Chronicles: Russia, which will release separately.

Developed by Climax Studios in collaboration with Ubisoft Montreal, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles brings the thrill of being a Master Assassin to 2.5D. Players will journey to three distinct civilisations and time 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. Each chronicle stands on its own with a unique setting, art style, story and Assassin, but is tied together narratively.

Players will embody legendary Assassins, including Shao Jun from the animated short Assassin’s Creed Embers™, and Arbaaz Mir and Nikolaï Orelov from the Assassin’s Creed graphic novels. Assassinate from the shadows, master the art of parkour and take the leap of faith in a collection of stunning, living paintings. Each chronicle has its own artistic signature, from the beautiful brush paintings of China to the vibrant colors of India and the distinctive propaganda art style of Russia.

Who they were 'wasting' the settings? Main games could still take place in those locations.

I'm just glad something pretty unique is on the table.

You will be able to take on missions in various ways. It supports and rewards you for being super stealthy (not engaging any guards), being a stealthy killer, and being a brawler (more aggressive play style). There are also multiple ways to get through a mission. You can climb on walls, or climb across the ceiling frames, or just attack guards head on.

But at its core, it is a 2.5D game meaning you will not be entirely be on one plane, but you will be able to use your environment to your advantage, similar to any AC game.

I dont know man. I hope so, but I really doubt it. It feels like they are just getting those settings out of the way. I am sure that if they were doing this settings as main entries they would keep it up their sleeves and not tease it with a 2.5d title - its not Ubisofts style. For example, I feel that if they were doing China they would keep it under wraps until a big announcement as they know how many people want Asia.

Looks very similar to Mark of the Ninja which isn't a bad thing. Its just a shame IMO as I feel like this will become a trend with a Chronicles style saga every year.

I'm not sorry, but this isn't new or exciting. Ubisoft came out with this same style of game for the original Assassin that started this all. Though at the time the Nintendo DS, yes the original precursor to those now-days.

This side scrolling mess is not fit for PS or Xbox, not even PC. This is a huge step back for you Ubisoft; some loyal Assassins pondering if this you going to defense mode to your latest mishap With the series. Here's a tip, if it isn't broken do not try to fix it.

It's just a small thing on the side, it doesn't affect the main games. How is it a step back for the whole series? If you don't like it, ignore it - it's a minor game that has no bearing on the main releases.

Talk about dramatic.

Altair's Chronicles on the DS is prehistoric compared to what's been revealed today.

If there's anything 'derivative', it comes from 'Mark of the Ninja'; and that's great because that's an excellent game. In fact today I was writing how cool it would be, if AC (for the main games, obviously) had implemented -- from the start -- that detailed & fine-tuned a system of stealth mechanics.

Ezio without RCS? That would be like not hiring Nolan North to play Desmond, or changing the actor that plays James Bond...

Oh well, at least they brought back Animus shards. :rolleyes:

The different styles sound cool though:

Each episode has its own visual aesthetic, with the first based heavily around Chinese watercolours and broad splashes of ink. The episode in India features pencil lines and archaic newspaper print mixed with flourishes of lotus flowers when Arbaaz leaps across the screen. Finally, Nikolai's early 20th century adventure is styled around the bold colours of revolutionary propaganda and the monochrome backdrop of early black and white photography.

If that's the case I hope we won't end up in a situation where owners of the Assassin's Creed Unity Season Pass pay for the two remaining episodes as much (if not more) as those buying the inevitable Assassin's Creed Chronicles Season Pass for the trilogy.

As someone who didn't get the free game offered to AC Unity Season Pass owners (I already had all the games I was interested in among those available) that would mean I paid 30€ for a bunch of pre-order weapons...

It would be nice to see the whole ACC Trilogy offered for free to Unity Season Pass owners who didn't claim the free game.

I think the Eurogamer article said there would be a season pass for the ACC series, but didn't mention a price. I would guess $20-$25 for the three games, so you're probably right. But I wouldn't expect any more "deals" from Ubi.


Saw in a different place someone joking this is almost the Assassin's Creed BRICs, only Brazil is missing.

When Desmond went to Brazil, there was a rumor the "next" game would be set in historic Brazil. Maybe there is a super secret fourth chapter.

Yay for a new AC game Boo for it being a 2.5D platformer this game is best suited for the Vita if anything. I respect the time and effort that is put into making a new AC game from 1 Dev to another. But the AC fan in me does not like the fact that you are not gonna make a full 3D open world game about this even if you make 3 new games with these same characters I would be happy if you brought it back to the Blackflag type of combat combat and kept the unity style free run. the fact that you can no longer whistle is a bummer when you want to stealth and draw guards near for that stealth kill or distract them. from the trailer the Russian guy is the closest to modern time to date you guys have made and that is what we are asking for a AC game that is near modern times doesn't need to be the present, and we understand that you don't want the guns to ruin to the game but in order to continue with this franchise you are gonna have to suck it up and give your fans what they want now to make this work even better add some type of item that in this game that will transfer to the next full AAA AC game you make or make this a prelude to the next AC game. Alot of people what games to actualy chain together like make a big picture as how you guys did for the first 5 AC game up to blackflag the story was so intense we kept buying the games for the story and gamelplay not just becuz we like to be called and assassin and go on a badass killing spree. but ya thats what I think cant speak for other though.

1. bring back the combat system used in AC Blackflag
2. keep the unity free run system
3. bring back the distracting whistle
4. tie the games together with the apple of eden type artifacts or keep the story going from the Desmond miles part where he died
5. keep coop missions from AC unity
6. bring back the Multiplayer menu we dont like having to go through story mode with a clan just to play multiplayer.

Exactly. It's like written somewhere that one setting can only have one game. Didn't Brotherhood happen? Or Rogue ffs? If New York can get two games..

Anyway, I'm busy changing my pants. This is awesome. The 2.5d doesn't bother me one bit, infact I wager this means these games would have stronger gameplay mechanics than standard AAA AC games. I'm way more happy to splurge my money on these games than mainstream AC games at this moment Also can confirm Arbaaz's accent doesn't sound British. If you heard me speaking English you'd hear me speaking in the same way :p

Go play Mark of the Ninja and then come back and tell me these games are suitable for Vita only.

Nice trailer. Very cool to see Russia coming too now.

I'm still in two minds about this 'spin off series'. On the one hand, I fell in love with the franchise because the open world gameplay is what I really enjoy. I understand the retro attraction to 2D platforming, but I'm just not that excited at what I see here. It also saddens me that both China and Russia are probably the two locations I'd like to see most as full games. I can't help but feel this series negates the chance of seeing full games in the same places.

However, on the other hand, nothing is stopping Ubisoft revisiting these locations later, as they did with America and Rogue. I suppose I have read the comics which have told tales outside the main series, so I will accept these games as alternative venues for storytelling. At least, I do hope there is a fair bit of story to these games. Fingers crossed for some First Civ, modern day snippets.

Still, I'll support the China game, and Shao Jun for sure. I feel it's important to support any new female lead games, and prove to Ubisoft that many of us want more of them.

does no one even notice that this is a 2d side scrolling game and its not like any of the others? its basically a mobile game that I think is a shame that they are skimping on 3 stories that could be so much better if they were full fledge games and not cheaply made 2d side scrolling piles of shinola. Why cant they just make a game worthy of these chars they made rogue a full fledged game even though they just copied and pasted 99% of black flag and called it a new game with slight changed that are like 1% of the game.

I AGREE 100% This is such a slap in the face to all the fans of the Assassins Creed Series. The only thing they could do that would be a bigger slap in the face is if they made people pay for this ********.
Hell I understand that Ubisoft doesn't seem to want to do any stories that will be new and original or iconic, but putting iconic chars into a side scrolling POS thats only 2.5 dimensions and not a full fledged game like they did with the POS that was Rogue even though 99% of that game was just copy and pasted Black Flag with 1% of the game changed to make it so they could call it a new game. That was a big disgrace too and I am ashamed to call myself a fan of ubisoft's games. I think that they should have never done this to 3 iconic chars like Shao Jun, Mir Arbaaz and Nikolai Orelov. They should be ashamed that they are treating these Iconic Chars with such disregard.

That's a bit much.

Firstly, I think you're vastly overestimating how sophisticated any games are. AC has only been significantly exploiting the sophistication available in a 3D form quite recently, and until then most of the things we were doing were not really above and beyond what we see happening in these 2.5D games.

Secondly, a 2D/2.5D game is not an instant "POS", as you call it. Some of the very best, most skill-based games I've ever played have been side-scrollers and top-down 2D games. I still remember feeling a little disappointed when we went into the modern 3D era, as I realised very few games were really challenging anymore, but other great things came of it. I'm not expecting that the Chronicles games are going to be in that top echelon for 2D gameplay, but they can be good and worthwhile in other ways. Ubisoft has a good record with this, from all-rounder classics like Rayman Legends through to games that lean more on their emotional value (Child Of Light, Valiant Hearts). Lots of us like the art style so far, and it can be wonderfully entertaining to play through games like that. The resurgence of interest in 2D has wrought amazing things now that graphics are so much better than they were in the old days. I hope you don't think Guacamelee is worthless, for example.

Thirdly, you're using the term "iconic" pretty loosely to cover a character who spent 10 minutes in an animated video and two characters with a spin-off comic each. The locations, sure - I can understand feeling like it's a loss to only have abstract interpretations of those cities instead of an accurate 3D world.

It's not a slap in the face, anyway. It's an option, a different kind of game. It might be a great way to make extra stories more cheaply, for a cheaper price tag. Nobody cheated you; they've told you upfront what this is since the Unity season pass was announced. You've decided you don't want it, and good for you. This will cost you no money.

I was gearing up for a detailed rebuttal but D.I.D's post has already done that. But thanks pal, without you us woebegone blind simplefolk would have forever wallowed in darkness, mistaking these pityful attemps as full-fledged 3D AAAA games. Now we are enlightened!

does no one even notice that this is a 2d side scrolling game and its not like any of the others? Its basically a mobile game that i think is a shame that they are skimping on 3 stories that could be so much better if they were full fledge games and not cheaply made 2d side scrolling piles of shinola. Why cant they just make a game worthy of these chars they made rogue a full fledged game even though they just copied and pasted 99% of black flag and called it a new game with slight changed that are like 1% of the game.

I agree 100% this is such a slap in the face to all the fans of the assassins creed series. The only thing they could do that would be a bigger slap in the face is if they made people pay for this ********.
Hell i understand that ubisoft doesn't seem to want to do any stories that will be new and original or iconic, but putting iconic chars into a side scrolling pos thats only 2.5 dimensions and not a full fledged game like they did with the pos that was rogue even though 99% of that game was just copy and pasted black flag with 1% of the game changed to make it so they could call it a new game. That was a big disgrace too and i am ashamed to call myself a fan of ubisoft's games. I think that they should have never done this to 3 iconic chars like shao jun, mir arbaaz and nikolai orelov. They should be ashamed that they are treating these iconic chars with such disregard.


just seen this lol! 100% agree....

Not many people agreed to that post because this genius seems to feel that the whole 2d sidescrolling genre is something imbecilic, only fit for mobiles and other inferior platforms. This is simply no true, regardless of how good or bad Chronicles turned out to be.

But at least he warned us that this is a side-scroller, without him we wouldn't have noticed.
