“Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China” takes you to the east with a female assassin

Ubisoft has announced that “Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China,” will be available as downloadable content to all  those who purchase the “Assassin’s Creed Unity” Season Pass.

As Shao Jun, players will be able to move through 16th-century China on a new quest. The game itself is a side-scrolling action title, and looks like it plays very similarly to “Mark of the Ninja.”

Fans of the franchise might recognize Shao Jun from her first appearance in the animated short, “Assassin’s Creed: Embers.” She is also in the novel adaptation of “Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.” Now she’ll join the ranks of other playable assassins.

The game also has a unique art style all its own to go with its new character. Perhaps this is a sign of things to come for the franchise, at least in regards to DLC. Who knows, we may even see Shao Jun in her own game, much like Aveline in “Assassin’s Creed Liberation.”

However, this is not the only content inside of the Season Pass. An expansion to “Assassin’s Creed Unity,” called “Dead Kings,” as well as additional content for the main game are packaged alongside “Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China.”

“Assassin’s Creed Unity” will be available on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in North America on Nov. 11, and in Europe on Nov. 13.
