China is a unitary sovereign state in East Asia and the world's most populous country.
China is one of the locations visited in Tomb Raider II by Lara and plays a big role in the main story of the game. It also houses the location of a mythical artifact called the Dagger of Xian that is hidden inside the Great Wall.
Lara will initially visit China in search for the Dagger of Xian, but finds out that the door to the Temple of Xian is locked and needs a key in order to unlock the door. When visiting China, Lara will do most of her exploring in the Great Wall and the mysterious secrets surrounding the Great. While scaling the Great Wall, Lara will come across many deadly traps and tricks in which the wall is filled with these perils. After scaling the Great Wall, she will come across one of Bartoli's men, who explains the requirements needed to unlock the main door to the Temple of Xian.
She later returns to China with the Fiamma Nera in hot pursuit in order to finally obtain the Dagger of Xian. On her return to China, most of her adventure will take place in the Temple of Xian and the mythical dimension of Floating Islands. After she successfully defeats Bartoli in The Dragon's Lair, she will retreat from China as the mountain side begins to collapse.
