This installation in the Assassin's Creed franchise will take take players to China in 1526 during the collapse of the Ming Dinasty. The last member of the Chinese Brotherhood, Shao Jun, returns to her hometown on a journey for revenge against the Templars in a 2.5D adventure. It is one of three games in the Chronicles trilogy, with the others taking place in India and Russia.
Reception on Weibo has been mostly positive, with many players saying, "I'm a fan of Assasin's Creed, seeing a Chinese theme is great." Other users worry the Chinese elements will be lost on players: "A video game about Chinese culture... Will it do well with foreigners?" Another user wondered, "Why does Shao Jun speak English?" There was also lamentation for the inability to climb Chinese palaces, but believed that being able to do so would probably get the game banned in China.
