The Assassin’s Creed Chronicles series is ending in early 2016, Ubisoft announced today.
Following the launch of Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China back in April of this year, Chronicles: India will be released on January 12, 2016, with Chronicles: Russia out a month later on February 9, 2016. Both episodes will be available digitally for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, carrying a price tag of $9.99 each.
If you’d prefer to get a retail version of all three Chronicles episodes, the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles Trilogy Pack will be released on February 9 for PS4 and Xbox One, priced at $29.99. You’ll also be able to get the Trilogy Pack digitally on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
For PlayStation Vita owners, the Trilogy Pack will be released on April 5, 2016 for $29.99, though we don’t know if it will come to retail.
The Assassin’s Creed Chronicles episodes take place in 2.5D and are all tied together narratively. Developed by Climax Studios and Ubisoft Montreal, here’s what you can expect from India and Russia:
The second episode, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India, throws players into the tension between the Sikh Empire and the East India Company in 1841. When a Master Templar arrives with a mysterious item that used to belong to the Assassin Order, Arbaaz Mir must discover why the Templar has come, steal back the item and protect his friends and his lover.
The final episode, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia, takes place in 1918 when Assassin Nikolaï Orelov must complete one last mission for the Assassin Order before he can leave with his family. His mission: infiltrate the house where the tsar’s family is being held by the Bolsheviks and steal an artifact that has been fought over by Assassins and Templars for centuries. While too late to save the tsar’s entire family, he manages to save the princess, Anastasia, whom he must protect as he escapes the Templars with her and the artifact in tow.
