Assassin’s Creed: Unity Season Pass Features a 2D Game Set in China

By   /   Sep 22, 2014

The Season Pass of Assassin’s Creed: Unity will include a new Creed title that will take place in 16th century China.

It’s called Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China and is a stand-alone downloadable title that plays like a 2D side-scrolling game. Players will fill the shoes of Shao Jun, the last remaining assassin of the Chinese Brotherhood, and one who has a revenge quest on her hands.

Jun apparently is not a new character and has previously been mentioned in the Assassin’s Creed lore as a student under Ezio Auditore in the Assassin’s Creed Embers animated short film and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations novel.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China is being developed by Climax Studios and is designed using a style that is inspired by traditional brush paintings. The game will include the usual stealth mechanics along with whatever gear assassins have, and also combine martial arts moves.

The Season Pass will also include a new campaign called Dead Kings to Assassin’s Creed: Unity. It will take place after the events of the game and task Arno Dorian to head for the city of Saint Denis in order to unlock the secrets of the French royal necropolis.

Dead Kings will feature a new weapon called the guillotine gun and come with new activities, new co-op missions and additional gear that can carry over to the main game.

Alongside all of the above, the Season Pass will also feature more content in the shape of missions, more than 30 new weapons and new customization options.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity is scheduled for release on November 11 on the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
