Announced only a couple weeks ago, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles is set to be a three part series of 2D sidescrolling Assassin’s Creed games, the first taking place in China, then the other two in India and Russia. With the release of the launch trailer for Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China this morning however, came the nice reminder that the game will be releasing tomorrow, April 21st.
The gorgeous trailer also gives us some hints about the narrative. In classic Assassin’s Creed fashion, it seems to be a good, old-fashioned revenge story. Not included in the trailer, but already released, the game will have you play as Shao Jun, only the second playable female assassin in the franchise so far, and it will see you return to China in 1526, just as the Ming Dynasty begins to fall.
Look for Assassin’s Creed Chronicles, when the first part of the three hits PS4, Xbox One, and PC tomorrow for $10, or for free if you bought the Assassin’s Creed Unity season pass. There is even a rumor Assassin’s Creed Chronicles may make its way to Vita. What do you think of Assassin’s Creed trying something different? Let us know in the comments.
