We know when it comes to the franchise of Assassin’s Creed, despite the major hiccough that was Unity, they know how to rally the troops with their rising, atmospheric promos. They put that skill to work in Ubisoft’s announcement trailer for Assassin’s Creed Chronicles.
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles tells the story of Assassins in three diverse locations and time periods for a series of all-new Assassin’s Creed adventures. Each Chronicle will transport players to lush and beautiful surroundings brought to life in a gorgeous art style for a brand new Assassin’s Creed experience.
