The 90-second trailer shows off the game's 16th Century China setting along with its new female hero, Shao Jun, whom we first met in the Assassin's Creed Embers short.
In the game, players will travel to famous real-world places like the Maijishan Grottoes, the Port of Macau, the Forbidden City, and the Great Wall of China. Jun is equipped with all manner of deadly weapons, including a secret shoe blade, rope darts, and daggers, among other things.
In terms of story, Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China is all about vengeance. Jun returns to her homeland (after leaving to train under Ezio Auditore from Assassin's Creed II) and exacts her vengeance upon those who killed off her Assassin compatriots.
Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China launches tomorrow, April 21, for PlayStation 4 and PC, while the Xbox One edition arrives April 22. The game is free for people who bought the Assassin's Creed Unity DLC pass (before it was removed) and is $10 for everyone else.
The game was developed by Climax Studios (Silent Hill: Shattered Memories) in association with Ubisoft Montreal.
Looking ahead, Ubisoft will release two more Assassin's Creed Chronicles games after China. They are Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia (set during the Red October revolution) and Assassin's Creed Chronicles India (set in the 19th century Sikh Empire). Release dates for these games have not been announced.
As for the core Assassin's Creed series, the next entry in the franchise is rumored to be the Victorian Era London Assassin's Creed Victory.
