Assassin’s Creed Unity Season Pass gives you a Brand New Game


Usually, when a gamer buys a season pass for any given title, they will usually be given priority access to new maps, weapons, downloadable content and more.

All of them will be part of the game that you have already purchased and will usually be designed to enhance the game play experience with additional content. But, it won’t be as simple as that when you buy the season pass for Assassin’s Creed Unity, because Ubisoft has gone the extra mile to make sure gamers get more than their worth, for the money they pay.

We can easily say that the game development is dedicated to add value to the title which is something so rare in this generation, where each map costs five dollars or more. They are actually going to give you access to a brand new assassin’s creed game which is set in China and features an all new protagonist. Need we say more? Actually, we should, because the team has revealed more on this already.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China

In a recent press statement, Ubisoft shared more details about the season pass for the game as well as the downloadable content associated with it. While it gives a lot of new weapons, additional missions and quests for Assassin’s Creed Unity, it also includes access to Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China. Based on the name Chronicles, we assume that this could be more of a series and even if the main AC games stop from being in the mainstream releases, there could be 2D versions of the titles with different characters who will carry the legacy forward.

This would be a stand-alone title which is not related to the game engine used for Unity and the storyline is set in 16th century China. The protagonist of the game is Shao Jun, a female assassin who got trained directly by the iconic Ezio Auditore in Assassin’s Creed Embers. The storyline was revealed in those animated short films and the novel, which now continues as a 2D game.

Future Plans

From the way the announcement has been made and the fact that this additional content for Assassin’s Creed Unity has been developed by Climax Studios, a separate wing; this could be a brand new title with more releases from next year onwards. For now, you can play the Chronicles if you buy the season pass or choose to buy it separately at a later stage.
