Unlike Assassin's Creed, it is not too difficult to turn an Orc Assassin into a female model.

Agreed, it was my most fun game of the year so far. A lot of fun to 100% on Xbone. It was pretty easy once the upgrades started rolling in and you could stunlock mobs or just go into super-execution mode if you needed to recover, but still a lot of fun getting up to that point. The only thing I was disappointed in was the boss fights.

As for people complaining about the label "free content", well some people are just never happy no matter what they get. If the entire game was free they'd still complain about it.

Once I started to roflstomp the orcs (about a third of the way into the main story) the game lost most of its draw. It was fun for a while but I cant see myself finishing it. Shame really, the game had great potential but it got repetitive very fast.
I have a nifty blue line!

This game is surprisingly good, looks and sounds perfect! It was a little overwhelming at first but after a short while its becoming addictive. Plays a lot like the Batman: Arkham games except with more gruesome beheadings Bloodthirsty

Considering the game is so easy with upgrades, I'd say the "challenge mode" is more of a balance fix. A new epic rune is a trivial addition. The new skin is nice.

Free is great, I'm just pointing out that calling this "FREE CONTENT!" is putting a marketing spin on something very minor. Compare with that free update to Goat Simulator which adds a significant amount of new stuff.

Not even free is good enough for some people.

Pretty broad definition of "content"

Considering it's free and not $5...
