Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, the 2.5D action game coming out later this month, will not be the only entry in the Chronicles series. Ubisoft recently announced two future titles that will take place in India and Russia; these games will feature new protagonists and distinctive settings. Stylistically, the games will stand on their own. The setting in China, for example, is heavily influenced by 16th century China melded with a more modern ink aesthetic, creating what Art Director Glenn Brace calls a “romantic, impressionist vibe.” He goes on to discuss the importance of rich, bright colors in India and how Russia, which takes place in the 20th century, makes use of the advent of “photography, graphics, poster art, [and] constructivism.”
While each game is a separate entry in the series, Lead Game Designer Xavier Penin says “there is a narrative link” between each Chronicles title. He explains that while the link is not large enough where the games cannot be enjoyed on their own, there will be a “special ending that’s really interesting for the fans and ties the Chronicles together.”
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China is set to be released April 21 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
