Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China is a downloadable video game available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
The game follows Shao Jun, who is the last remaining Assassin of the Chinese Brotherhood, during her return to China in 1526, as the Ming dynasty starts to crumble and two years after the events of the short film Assassin's Creed: Embers. Strengthened by her meeting with Ezio Auditore da Firenze and armed with her stealth and combat skills, Shao Jun goes on a quest for vengeance against the Templars and to restore her fallen Brotherhood.
As part of the Assassin's Creed Chronicles series, the game differs stylistically from most previous entries in the franchise, being set on 2.5D plane like Assassin's Creed II: Discovery. It was announced by Ubisoft that Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China would be the first part in the Chronicles trilogy, followed by games in India and Russia.
