Ubisoft has revealed that Assassin’s Creed Chronicles will be an episodic trilogy that will begin with Assassin’s Creed: China. The game is set to release digitally next month, with the following two episodes called Assassin’s Creed: India and Assassin’s Creed: Russia set to release by the Fall.

These episodic games are being developed by Ubisoft Montreal in collaboration with Climax Studios, who are most known for making Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. The games will feature 2.5d stealth missions that will definitely be a departure from the main series of games.

Ubisoft said the following regarding the games:

“Assassin’s Creed Chronicles take players to three distinct civilizations and periods throughout history including the Ming dynasty at the start of its downfall, the Sikh Empire as it prepares for war in India, and the aftermath of the Red October revolution. Designed for masters of stealth who share a passion for rewriting history with games, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles let players embody Assassins Shao Jun, Arbaaz Mir, and Nikolaï Orelov in a 2.5D reimagining of the Assassin’s Creed universe. Slay from the shadows, in a collection of stunning, living paintings.”
