Assassin's Creed: The Chain Will Prepare You For Assassin's Creed 3

UbiWorkshop is now accepting pre-orders for Assassin's Creed: The Chain. This 128-page comic book is said to provide players with insight into the events of Assassin's Creed 3.

The Chain completes the tale of Nikolai Orelov, an Assassin living in late 19th century to early 20th century Russia. It also focuses on his ancestor, Daniel Cross, who is reliving these memories in 1998. These characters were first introduced in Assassin's Creed: The Fall, a three-part comic series that debuted around the same time as Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.

Assassin's Creed 3 is set during the time of the American Revolution, a full century before Orelov is alive. Don't expect AC3 protagonist Connor to make an appearance in this comic, then. Presumably Chain references the events of AC3 in some way. Or there may be some connection between the game and comic in the present-day.

Chain is expected to ship this summer. You can pre-order the $19.99 comic here. The cover art is below.
