Ubisoft Entertainment S.A. the multinational video game developer and publisher, headquartered in Montreuil, France will release the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India, tomorrow, on January 12, for PS4, Xbox One and PCs, reports PC Gamer.
Ubisoft said in a blog post that this version of the console game is set in 1841 India when tensions are coming to a head between the Sikh Empire and the British East India Company. The Templars apparently have some role in it all, but you, as the Assassin Arbaaz Mir, are more focused on stopping them from stealing the Koh-i-Noor Diamond, while at the same time trying to protect your friends and your lover, Princess Pyara Kaur.
The part of the game in a cavern comes complete with timed traps, unstable platforms, and a score determined by how quickly you can make it through alive. It also has its share of patrolling Sikh guards, who can be avoided, stealth-assassinated, fought, or – if you time your movements just right – crushed by the numerous platforms, chunks of wall and hanging stalactites that give way shortly after you grab or step on them.
“There is a narrative link” between the three games of the Assassin’s Creed Trilogy, says Xavier Penin, Lead Game Designer at Ubisoft Partners. “As [the games] have to be independent, it’s not huge. It’s not central, but it’s there, especially for the fans. And if you finish Russia, and you’ve played the other two, there’s a special ending that’s really interesting for the fans and ties the Chronicles together.”
