Assassin's Creed Chronicles: India

The second installment in a spin-off series created within Assassin’s Creed - one of the Ubisoft’s leading franchise. The game translates the series’ mechanics into a 2.5D side-scrolling action-adventure game. The story is set in 1841, in India. The country is on the brink of open conflict as tensions increase between the Empire of Sikh and the British, who claim rights to Indian territory. With these historical events serving as the background, another ongoing conflict comes to light – the never-ending war of Assassins and Templars. You play as Abraaz Mir, a member of the Assassin Order, who tries to care for the Order’s interests in the times of political turmoil. The game features the characteristic elements of the series, such as spectacular acrobatics, sneaking, melee-combat with guards, and assassinations of targets. The shift in player perspective, however, necessitates a different play style, putting more emphasis on tactical thinking and planning your every step.

Assassinís Creed Chronicles: India is the second spin-off in the action-adventure game series whose main plot revolves around the conflict between Assassins and Templars. As always, the title employs a distinctive historical background; this time players visit the Indus Valley. Unlike most Assassinís Creed games, this is a 2.5D platformer. PC / Windows version was developed by Ubisoft Montreal.

Story

The game starts off in 1841 Ė when the strong at that time Sikh Empire is slowly getting pushed into defensive. The British long have been sharpening their teeth for the Empireís territories, and after a series of assassination attempts aimed at members of the ruling dynasty it has became obvious that a conflict is about to erupt. On top of that, Assassins and Templars get involved in this already tense political situation. Playing as Arbaaz Mir Ė a young member of the Assassin Order Ė you have to struggle against the adverse circumstances and tend to the Orderís interests at the same time.

Gameplay

In terms of gameplay, Assassinís Creed Chronicles: India for PC / Windows does not stray much from what we've seen in core Assassinís Creed games. You get to perform amazing acrobatics, sneak past, elude or fight guards, and assassinate selected targets Ė all this conceptually sounds much like the original games, but the change of perspective means that each of these activities requires quite a different approach. It takes a bit different skills, but also better perception and more careful planning of your each step.

Technology

Moving the game into 2.5D perspective, aside from affecting the gameplay, allowed for more interesting and detailed level designs to be implemented. Fewer objects to generate and a flat perspective mean the in-game city could be made more detailed, making it even easier to get the feel of the period. Developers not only captured the distinctive atmosphere in the city streets, but also took care of characteristic appearance of the people, as well as recreated the most iconic pieces of Indian architecture, such as the Taj Mahal.
