The Assassin’s Creed Chronicles saga brings the thrill of being a Master Assassin to 2.5D with standalone side-scroller gameplay. In each episode, players journey to distinct civilizations and time periods, making history in an Assassin’s Creed experience that provides unique setting, art style, story and Assassin character. For those who play them all, the three Assassin’s Creed Chronicles stories tie together narratively and contribute to the lore of Assassin’s Creed.
The final episode, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia, takes place in 1918 when Assassin Nikolaï Orelov must complete one last mission for the Assassin Order before he can leave with his family. His mission: infiltrate the house where the tsar’s family is being held by the Bolsheviks and steal an artifact that has been fought over by Assassins and Templars for centuries. While too late to save the tsar’s entire family, he manages to save the princess, Anastasia, whom he must protect as he escapes the Templars with her and the artifact in tow.
