Assassin’s Creed Chronicles, the 2.5D spin-off of Ubisoft’s time hopping series, is back next year with parts two and three of the trilogy. For a moment there it looked as if Ubisoft had forgotten the side-scroller entirely, following the launch of Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China back in April. Ubisoft had originally said it wanted the entire trilogy to conclude this Autumn.

It’s a tad frustrating that the spin-off series is visiting all the main locations we want the franchise to go, but we’ll be heading to India on January 12, 2016, before visiting Russia on February 9th. That’s two Assassin’s Creed games in less than a month! Never change, Ubisoft. As with the first game, it’s under development from Climax Studios.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India will be set during the mid-19th century, with the Sikh Empire engaging in a bit of a hoo-hah with the private armies of the British-owned East India Company. As always, expect a Templar conspiracy threatening the world, possibly using a mysterious artifact that grants immortality.

When the series heads to Russia, meanwhile, players will take on the role of one Nikolaï Orelov, who must sneak into a mansion where the Tsar’s family are being held captive by the Bolsheviks and steal an artifact. Presumably the Bolsheviks are Templars. Rinse and repeat, Ubisoft. As with China, both games feature unique art styles representing the location and time period.

I have to admit I forgot AC Chronicles: China even existed, did any GD'ers get round to it? What did you think?

I don't know if I can trust ubisoft with another title... They promised better optimization with AC:Syndicate...and they kinda didn't deliver that.. even with the "extra" time they spent optimizing for the pc version. AC2 and AC:BF were my favorite out of the series the rest are just...meh...

I think ac syndicate was much better optimized than unity, i played almost all max, except shadows on high, and had like 50-60fps, if i had 4gb gpu maybe i could have max.

Sigh so many comments ''Assassin's Creed for me ended with ''x'' game''
or I stopped caring about AC since ''x'' game
In EVERY thread about Assassin's Creed
This trend is BS, I don't like certain games myself but I don't post the exact lines on every article just because it is a trend to hate that particular game

right are you, this trend look like BS
if someone's AC is ended, why would he visit/read an AC blog post or article? or why would he comment there? nobody asked him anything

Assassin´s Creed ended for me with Revelations. Others are moneymakers only for me. Maybe others series can be good too (personally I tried AC:III and AC:BF), but they are missing some..."spirit"...

Seriously I would hate it if they again came up with some indie crap, do it properly or don't do it all. In India we have a lot of mystical & legendary stories.

The amount of stories is virtually endless, our geography includes all the features too. So many kings & so many cities. There is no lack of good story here.

Yep, History is endless. From Indus Valley to Mauryans to Mughals to Britishers.
They had diverse choices. Historical architectures, monuments, personalities are worth a try for "Assassin's Creed". ( In full fledged 3D world )

I stopped at Black Flags, in my opinion it's still one of the best in it's series. The ones after it to me feel like it's just thrown together to add as much multi-cultural diversity as possible. Something about this doesn't appeal to me. It's not as original anymore, I just feel force-fed...
