Assassin's Creed: Unity Revolution Edition - only at GAME

As the release date for both Assassin's Creed: Unity and Assassin's Creed: Rogue draws near, Ubisoft is talking more about its plans for Chronicles, a spin-off series which reimagines the classic Assassin's Creed gameplay in a 2D side-scrolling style.

The first of these Chronicles will be the already announced Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China, which will star female Chinese assassin Shao Jun. It will be included in the DLC Season Pass for Assassin's Creed: Unity and will also be available as a standalone game.

"We really liked the side-scrolling idea, like Mark of the Ninja, and we thought it would be a really great way to explore some of the other universes we've created," Assassin's Creed: Unity creative director Alex Amancio has now told Eurogamer, before hinting that the style of future Chronicles adventures will depend on the setting.

"One thing that's really cool is that every one of the chapters of this game will be in the art style representative of that era in time,” he explains. “This is why Shao Jun's game is like Chinese ink - very black and red. Once we have other characters and timeframes the art style will completely change to match that specific character.”

Just don't expect Ubisoft to spill the beans just yet on what those characters and timeframes will be. “I don't want to spoil the surprise," Amancio teased, "but the idea is that we have this rich universe - we're going to use it."

Assassins Creed: Unity is out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on 14 November. Assassin's Creed: Rogue hits Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on the same day. Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China will follow in 2015.
