Celebrate Lunar New Year by going stealthy in the Ming dynasty with Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, which you can download for free on PC via the Ubisoft Store beginning February 9. Focusing on Shao Jun, a Chinese Assassin trained by Ezio Auditore, this 2.5D stealth-action adventure takes players on a quest through a stylized vision of 16th-century China inspired by traditional Chinese ink paintings – but if you want it for free, move fast, because the offer is only good through February 15.
Taking a different approach than other Assassin’s Creed games, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China puts an emphasis on trickery and avoiding detection, as Shao Jun is able to slip into the background to hide in shadows, distract guards with firecrackers, and eliminate enemies with a Hidden Blade in her shoe. Depending on the approach they use and how well they execute it, players are ranked after each encounter; slip through a section of a level without disturbing a single guard, for example, and you’ll earn a gold “Shadow” ranking, while expertly slashing through your enemies in open combat can net you gold as a “Brawler.” And while Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China is a self-contained adventure, it’s also the first chapter in a trilogy that continues in the 19th and 20th centuries with Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia, respectively.
You can start Shao Jun’s adventure for free on PC by visiting the Ubisoft Store from February 9 and February 15.
