Details about the Assassin’s Creed Unity Season Pass have been revealed, including something about a side scrolling game called Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China. It will also include a new campaign, new weapons, and more missions for the main Assassin’s Creed Unity game, but that was already expected from before they announced the game.
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China is a downloadable game only available as part of the season pass; although there is always the chance that Ubisoft will release it as a standalone title at some point. Players will take on the role of Shao Jun, the last remaining assassin from the Chinese Brotherhood, who has previously appeared in supporting AC media like the Assassin’s Creed Embers animation and Assassin’s Creed Revelations novel.
The side scrolling game itself uses graphics and artwork inspired by traditional asian brush paintings, and ends up with a very stylistic feel that is unlike other Assassin’s Creed games. It appears to have a similar art style to Okami, but with the realism and grittiness turned up.
For those more interested in the Assassin’s Creed Unity content of the season pass, there is a new campaign set in St Denis; where the French royal family was buried before it was looted during the French Revolution. As usual, there are new enemies to defeat, a new weapon to be discovered, and a new co-op mission to be played.
Assassin’s Creed Unity will be releasing worldwide on 11 November for next generation consoles and PC.
