Announced earlier today, Assassin's Creed: Brahman is the newest graphic novel series in Ubisoft's two-dimensional expansion of its video game universe, following in the footsteps of Assassin's Creed: The Fall and Assassin's Creed: The Chain.

Written by Brenden Fletcher (Wednesday Comics) with artwork by Cameron Stewart (Catwoman, Batman & Robin) and Karl Kerschl (Adventures of Superman), Assassin's Creed: Brahman takes place in nineteenth century India, which means that the series' staple of killing evil British people will proudly continue.

The story follows Arbaaz Mir, a new assassin who works to bring down a "lifelong foe" that totally jacked up his land and kinsmen. We're no psychics, but we've got a sneaking suspicion that some dudes are totally going to get stabbed by some wrist-knives before this thing wraps up.
