Assassin’s Creed Unity Trailer: Season Pass Chronicles
Ubisoft has announced its plans for the inevitable Assassin's Creed Unity Season Pass, and things have taken a 2.5D turn for the better.
The UbiBlog lays all of the juicy details out on the table for anyone who's interested: the Season Pass will cost $29.99 and contain two separate chapters in the Assassin's Creed lore: Dead Kings and Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China.
Dead Kings takes place after the events of Assassin's Creed Unity, where protagonist Arno is looking to separate himself from Paris and all of the madness that ensued. He finds himself tangled in mystery in an underground area known as Saint Denis. The blog teases new weapons and hidden animals in the wilderness adding to the danger.
Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China is the real main event here, however. This will be a 2.5D side-scrolling adventure set in feudal China and starring Shao Jun, the popular female Chinese Assassin from the 'Assassin Creed: Embers' animated film. According to the blog, she "has returned to Beijing as the last remaining Assassin of the Chinese Brotherhood. Hell-bent on revenge, she will strike out against those who destroyed her Brotherhood." Sounds good to us.
We get when Season Passes have additional chapters to the game they're supporting, but to release a full game separate from the original title but set in the same universe is a really cool approach. We hope that either more publishers follow this method or Ubisoft continues to set the trend... because Far Cry 4: Blood Dragon would be awesome.
The Assassin's Creed: Unity Season Pass can be purchased side-by-side with the full game on Nov. 11, and all of the content will be made available by early 2015.
