The fever pitch surrounding a typical Assassin’s Creed release has been unusually quiet for Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China. It seems three-dimensions really are everything.

Ubisoft has released the launch trailer for AC: Chronicles trailer, and what it lacks in visual splendour it seems to make up for with actual stealth-based gameplay design - a feature mysteriously absent from Assassin’s Creed since its inception.

Taking some heavy cues from Prince of Persia, another title in Ubisoft’s stable, AC Chronicles: China blends platforming, puzzle-solving, stealth and combat, all in a pseudo 2D adventure. Oh, and it’s got a female protagonist too; Ubisoft clearly did a “lot of extra production work" to squeeze Shao Jun in. She’s receiving training from series’ stalwart Ezio Auditore, and is on a quest for vengeance against the Templars.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China is the first of three standalone Chronicles adventures set to hit, with Russia and India arriving later this year. Each is set in different time periods with unique art styles appropriate to the era, telling mini tales Ubisoft believe aren’t suited to full-blown Assassin’s Creed outings.

Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China is out today on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Looks good, hope it runs smoother than Unity did at launch. Surely nothing can get worse than those Mars Attacks' Aliens, that were meant to be NPCs. lol.

What I want is Assassin's series finally come to an end. Few years ago i had only good memories about AC. Today when I think about it is hoary old chestnut, money and bad optimization.
