The Assassin’s Creed Chronicles saga brings the thrill of being a Master Assassin to 2.5D with standalone side-scroller gameplay. In each of the three episodes, players journey to distinct civilizations and time periods, making history in individual Assassin’s Creed experiences that each provides a unique setting, art style, story and Assassin character. For those who play them all, the three Assassin’s Creed Chronicles stories tie together narratively and contribute to the lore of Assassin’s Creed.
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China takes the adventure to the Far East, 16th century China, and stars Shao Jun, a fan-favorite from the Assassin’s Creed Embers animated movie. Trained by Ezio Auditore, Shao Jun has returned to Beijing as the last remaining Assassin of the Chinese Brotherhood. Hell-bent on revenge, she will strike out against those who destroyed her Brotherhood.
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.
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.
