Ubisoft have revealed that Assassin’s Creed Chronicles will be the next title in the popular series, however it’s not what you might expect! Chronicles is a trilogy that will take you on a journey spread over three games with three different assassins, across three different periods in history and three different empires – China, India and Russia.
Check out the trailer below… Do I spot a bit of UbiArt! It looks fantastic and I’m already buzzing with excitement. The side scrolling 2.5D action will make for a great change of pace to the series and has a Prince of Persia vibe about the gameplay.
China will be the first chronicle in the series, which will release on April 22.
The UBIart framework has powered some of the finest 2D visuals in all of gaming, as demonstrated in Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends. What happens when a team sets out to make a JRPG using this engine? The result is the unique Child of Light, now available on Xbox One and Xbox 360.
Child of Light’s includes a number of clear JRPG elements. Battle revolves around a timing mechanic similar to classic Final Fantasy’s now classic Active Time Battle system. It is a nod back to the original JRPG games of the past with a beautiful and distinctive art style that is just breathtaking to see on screen.
Child of Light is available from the Xbox Store for £11.99, it has a Free Trial as well to give you a taste of what the game has to offer.
