If reports are true when we won’t be getting a mainline Assassin’s Creed game in 2016, but we know for sure there’s still room for two spin-offs. We’ve had China, but there’s still Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India and Russia to come. The former is due out in just a few days, with Ubisoft revealing a brand new gameplay trailer to detail just how this 2.5D action game is going to play out, and it definitely looks a little familiar to old-school Prince of Persia fans.

Like China before it, ACC: India utilises a unique painted art style to depict gorgeous 3D backgrounds for all that two-dimensional slaying. Lead designer Matt Duff’s on hand to take us through it, showing new assassin Arbaaz Mir hopping about 19th century India, dealing with tensions between the Sikh Empire and those swines at the East India Company.

I haven’t actually got round to given AC China a go, but I’m definitely liking what I’m seeing here. In the absence of a Prince of Persia game from Ubisoft this seems like a great alternative, with that trademark slick platforming combined with nifty gadgets and stealth gameplay.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India is out on January 12th, for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Looking out for the Russian follow-up about a month or so later.

The only reason Assassin's creed is a thing is because Ubisoft screwed up PoP in the first place...

Graphics aren't everything to me, but it seems that this game would be easily played on old gen consoles. Am I wrong?

The birth of assassin's creed in itself was an inspiration from prince of persia.

It was actually originally meant to be a spin-off, see post above by "Zer01neDev". But yes, you're right, I just wanted to add something :D

Yeah, I've seen this vid before, but what do you mean by "because of licensing right"? PoP and AC are both Ubi's games. Where was the issue?

"Forget Prince of Persia. It will never come back. The reason why AC exists at all is because PoP meant Ubi has to pay for license, since they don't own the IP. AC is Ubi's own IP, so merchandising and all that **** is theirs to keep. PoP is financially not worth it."


Come from an unknown source on 4chan.

As far as I'm aware, Ubi bought The Learning Company, Brøderbund (Red Orb published PoP 3D, it was a sub-company of Brøderbund) who was the original owner of the PoP rights from Mechner.
