The next chapter in Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Chronicles saga releases today for Xbox One, set during 19th-century India at the height of the British empire. Whilst tensions are rising between the East India Company and the Sikh Empire, a race between the Assassins and the Templars to secure a priceless diamond begins.
Players find themselves in the shoes of Arbaaz Mir: master assassin. Slightly more nimble than your average assassin, Arbaaz negotiates environmental obstacles with ease and can take down adversaries in an unsurprisingly slick fashion, with moves new to Assassin’s Creed like the helix strike, and the series-classic silent takedown.
Developed by Climax Studios and Ubisoft Montreal, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles is a new take on the Assassin’s Creed formula, taking players into a rich, 2.5D Indian world with a hearty blend of satisfying stealth platforming gameplay. Our very own Rich Berry reviewed Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India this week, so go check out what he thinks!
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India comes after the saga’s first entry set in 16th century China, and culminates in the series finale set in early 20th century Russia, releasing in just a few weeks on February 9. At the same time, you’ll be able to grab the lot as part of the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles Trilogy Pack, releasing both digitally and in retail stores.
