The Blog mentions a retail bundle too

I'll probably wait for that. :)

Even the Vita gets this, but no love for the PS3, Xbox 360 and any Nintendo console. :(

Finally! Been waiting for ages for news on these. I had a feeling that India had been pushed back to tally up with the Maharaji missions next year. Looking forward to something to play again.

I don't understand Ubisoft. Was it so hard for them to at least keep us updated about India and Russia after China's release in April? Besides, they said they would release India and Russia within 2015, but now they pushed them to 2016.

Ever heard of better late than never...

Delays can happen for all sorts of reasons you know. Obviously they put a lot of effort in China and they hoped that would get a lot of attention, and likewise Unity was the big next-gen game launch. Then Unity bombed and China fizzled so they decided to change plans and put all their energy on Syndicate.

Now that Syndicate is getting kudos, they are putting them back out so that a halo effect will provide more attention to those games.

True, delays happen , I know, but was it so hard for Ubisoft to leave a message that both titles would be delayed? For 8 months from April to early December there had been no news about both games at all. I actually thought they would be cancelled.

At this time Syndicate was announced, so obviously they felt that fans were not exactly starving for AC. You are getting the final chronicles a month after another in 2016...also the year of the AC movie.

Basically Ubisoft want to corner the market so thoroughly that there is one new AC product per four months.

In case anyone cares Eurogamer Portugal reviewed the game and gave it a recommended seal, it seems like the game is actually good, by comparison, back in the day, the same reviewer called the China game meh and boring.

Eurogamer Europe's Ian Higton hated it. Says its very samey to China and this time there are autofail missions.

In the mission, The Absent Handler, inside of a small building that has locked doors, there is an Assassin Symbol on a wall with what apears to be a sun in it. When one uses Eagle Vision, the symbol reveals the numbers 2021. This must be a reference to maybe an Assassin's Creed Rising Sun set in Japan possibly in 2021. Any thoughts?

Chronciles China, India, and Russia are separate add-ons. AC Chronicles China should be free for those who paid for the AC Unity Season pass, but it seems like Chronicles India and Russia are not being offered for free to those people. You can also buy the physical disc version - which includes all three Chronicles - after they release the Russia content.

So, is Chronicles Russia still coming next week? I feel like they've been sort of mum about it for a little while. I'm still working my way through India, so no hurry for me, but I'm curious.

My retail copy was shipped earlier today

The retail release was scheduled for the 9th February in tandem with the digital version release of AC Chronicles: Russia

I'm sure we'll get a Russia launch trailer like we did with India.

I finished the game an hour or so ago, I enjoyed it quite a lot, visually beautiful, plays similar to China but seems better designed or at least flows better, interesting variety of missions like pure stealth, kill everybody without being seen, escape sequences and the surprisingly fun sniping missions, etc..., the game overall has better stealth than the main series which depending on the point of view is either quite amazing or quite sad.
The story is still nothing to write home about, but is a lot better than the one in China, at least is not super forgettable like the China one, the antagonists are also more memorable, but that might be because they have a fair amount of screen time while in China the antagonists were not really ever present until their time to be killed.
Arbaaz is also a lot more likable than Shao Jun, I mean, I like Shao Jun in Embers but in the game she is basically a completely different character with her edgelord one liners about revenge and darkness, and then there's her voice actress who doesn't really fit the character and makes her sound like a total, due to lack of better word, b*tch, Arbaaz's voice actor is decent and fits the character, and he has the same personality from the comics so if you liked him in the comics, you will probably like him here.

From what I played I prefer India to China, but I suck at platforming :nonchalance:so far it's been more challenging for me than hiding from the guards.
These games are harder than the main series lmao

It's sad to see India being used as the setting for a smaller game, I think the flow, aesthetics and guards archetypes would work really well for the main series.
Arbaaz Mir seems to be cooler than Shao Jun IMO.

It only covers some locations in one region of India, Afghanistan and Pakistan, they still have the rest of India if they want to make a main game.

Well, Chronicles Russia was the worst out of the three imo. The only decent thing about it was the art direction. Terrible accents (I guess Unity got it right with its neutered BBC take), silly story (even worse than China and India), awful platforming and controls. Maybe I'm just annoyed with all the stupid chases you have to endure, but it's still sad to see an interesting setting going to waste. Even bonus outfits can't unlock properly.

Even more confusing is that Shao Jun in Chronicles: China had the BBC British accent, but Orelov doesn't? I guess even the devs can't decide what they want anymore.

The voice acting is terrible throughout these games sadly. Orelov's VA literally sounds like he is reading off a page.

I wanted to play this for the lore and story. I did that.

But ubisoft.....never never NEVER let this climax studio touch an assassins creed ever again. It is a gigantically frustrating game. Always those godawful auto fail missions, buggy controls, totally scripted gameplay with no personal input what so ever. This is never what assassins creed was meant to be. I rate it -5/10.

It was one of the first games that I actually was sorry for that I ever payed any money for it.

Hello and welcome to the Forums,

You'll need to wait and see but upon release, you can find out on the Ubisoft Club site (https://club.ubi.com). ;)

Maybe this response is worth to someone in the future but the Vita version and the PS4 version are not cross-buy.

Regarding the uplay actions and rewards, right now they are not implemented for the Vita. I'm currently playing the vita version but neither the ios app nor the website recognize that I have the game.. Maybe in the future this will change..
