"Assassin's Creed III," the next major installment in Ubisoft's incredibly popular game franchise, is due out this fall. But if you're hankering for some Assassin-Templar war action to tide you over until then, Ubisoft has announced an all new graphic novel, "The Chain." While the book serves as a continuation of the story-arc developed in previous "Creed" comics, it's apparently tied to the next game in some manner, as well.
A couple years ago, Ubisoft teamed up with now-defunct DC imprint Wildstorm to produce a three-issue comic series, "Assassin's Creed: The Fall." The story followed the exploits of Nikolai Orelov, a Russian assassin in the late 19th century. Much like the characters in previous "Creed" videogames, Orelov's tale is seen through the eyes of his modern-day descendent, Daniel Cross.
According to Ubisoft's site, "The Chain" is the next chapter in Orelov and Cross' story.
