The Assassin’s Creed franchise has always taken fans to exotic locations and time periods to explore – from the Italian Renaissance to the American Revolution. This year is no different! This time, the Assassins are headed to India and Russia in the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles! Players will journey to distinct civilizations throughout history, including the Sikh Empire as it prepares for war in India and the aftermath of the Red October Revolution in Russia. I have gotten a chance to play this game and since I put it in, I could not stop! This game is amazing! I love playing all three of them.
Now, I am a long time fan of this series – but whether you are a long-time fan of Assassin’s Creed like me, or a newcomer, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles lets you discover what has made the franchise one of the most celebrated in video game history in a fresh genre for the series. Each chapter is a new beginning and comes with a unique hero from the Assassin’s Creed universe in a never-seen-before setting. While each Assassin’s story stands on its own, the chronicle is tied together narratively (and I for one, love this!).
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles brings the thrill of being a Master Assassin to 2.5D. Scout, sneak, and hide to avoid detection. Fool your enemies by using whistles and disguises. Find your target, kill, and escape. As in every Assassin’s Creed experience, freedom of movement is essential. Whether you’re running from danger, scaling obstacles, or climbing stealthily, you will feel that you really can do anything. Switch between fore, mid, and background environments and choose different paths according to your needs. Open new pathways, complete side missions, grab hidden collectibles, or take the quickest path to your target.
