New Assassin's Creed India Trailer Showcases Game Mechanics

Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India looks to entice gamers with a revamped cover system and challenge rooms to test player's skill.

The Second installment of the spin-off trilogy Assassin's Creed Chronicles is nearly upon us -- slated for release on January 12. Climax Studios has revealed another trailer today showcasing the gameplay we can expect from this 2.5D action/stealth platformer.

The Assassins are out to stop the Templars during the 19th century, when the British empire controls most of India. You play as Arbaaz Mir, and you are tasked with recovering something that was stolen from your Brotherhood. But you also have a personal agenda to save your love interest from the enemy. 

You will travel across multiple landscapes, from Imperial Palaces to Ancient Caverns. Take down your foes in traditional assassin fashion, or move like a ghost with the refined cover system showcased in the trailer. The normal assortment of gadgets are available, like smoke bombs and noise darts, but some new gadgets (rope darts, a chakram, and a special trident hidden blade) are unique to Arbaaz alone. 

Both aggressive and stealth play are rewarded, but you can still get overwhelmed if you are not careful. Multiple difficulty options and challenge rooms ensure replay value. 

Each Assassin's Creed Chronicles installment can be digitally downloaded for $10 each on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You can also buy The Trilogy Pack for $30. The Pack is comprised of Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China, Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India, and Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia (releasing on February 9th).

    I'm not entirely sold on this. I think Altair Chronicles (or something like that) was 2.5D as well, and the game was terrible. I'll wait for the reviews, and we'll see how this game holds up to the main franchise.
