Official Press Release
SAN FRANCISCO April 20, 2015 Today, Ubisoft® announced that Assassins Creed® Chronicles: China will be available in North and South America on April 21 and will be available Wednesday, April 22, in EMEA territories for download on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and is available April 21, worldwide, on Windows PC.
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 Assassins Creed Embers and has returned, determined to restore the Chinese Brotherhood of Assassins.
In Assassins Creed Chronicles: China, players pick up Shao Juns story as she returns to China hell-bent on revenge. Her story will take players to famous locales including the Maijishan Grottoes, Port of Macau, the Forbidden City and the Great Wall of China. Armed with stealth, agility and a combination of deadly weapons and equipment including a sharp and swift jian, a secret shoe blade, lethal rope darts and daggers, players will deliver payback to those who decimated the Chinese Brotherhood of Assassins.
Developed by Climax Studios in collaboration with Ubisoft Montreal, Assassins Creed Chronicles brings the thrill of being a Master Assassin to 2.5D. Brought to life by fusing the essence of Chinese 16th-century traditional brush strokes with more contemporary impressionistic styles, Shao Juns adventure will immerse players in a living painting as they traverse undetected across Chinas historical landmarks.
Assassins Creed Chronicles: China will be followed by Assassins Creed® Chronicles: India and Assassins Creed®Chronicles: Russia, which will release separately and take players through India in the 19th-century Sikh Empire and then through Russia after the Red October revolution.
Assassins Creed Chronicles: China will be available for $9.99 and will be available for download tomorrow for Assassins Creed® Unity Season Pass holders. Subsequent chronicles will be available for purchase separately.
