Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China will be available Tuesday, April 21st. In order to celebrate this announcement, the French company has also released the launch trailer of the game that can be viewed below.
As the press release reads:
“In 16th-century China the recently appointed Jiajing Emperor instigated a sudden and ruthless purge of all he felt were a danger to his newly acquired throne, including the Chinese Brotherhood of Assassins. A young Assassin, Shao Jun, fled to the West to complete her training under the legendary Assassin Ezio Auditore in the animated short Assassin’s Creed: Embers and has returned, determined to restore the Chinese Brotherhood of Assassins.”
In Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, players pick up Shao Jun’s story as she returns to China hell-bent on revenge. Her story will take players across China, to famous locations including the Maijishan Grottoes, Port of Macau, The Forbidden City and The Great Wall. Armed with stealth, agility, and a combination of deadly weapons and equipment including a sharp and swift jian, a secret shoe blade and lethal rope darts and daggers, players will deliver payback to those who decimated the Chinese Brotherhood of Assassins.
Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China will be followed by Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia, which will release separately and take players through the 19th-century Indian Sikh Empire and then through Russia, following the Red October Revolution.
