Each will be a standalone experience with a loose overarching narrative, and each can be bought separately or together with a season pass. The two remaining episodes will hit in autumn this year.
British developeris working with on the mini-series, and we'll "embody legendary Assassins," which includes Shao Jun from the animated short Assassin’s Creed Embers, followed by Arbaaz Mir and Nikolaï Orelov from the graphic novels.

Each chronicle stands on its own with a unique setting, art style, story and Assassin, but is tied together narratively."
