Assassin's Creed Unity Dead Kings DLC Next Week

Ubisoft announces a January 13th release date for the Dead Kings DLC for Assassin's Creed Unity for Windows and Xbox One, with the PS4 version of the DLC to follow the next day. This will be free to all owners of the stealthy action/adventure sequel after Ubisoft cancelled the game's season pass program in response to issues surrounding its launch. They celebrate the news with a new cinematic trailer showing off the pack, and offer the following explanation of what to expect:
After the events of Assassin’s Creed Unity, Arno leaves Paris for Saint Denis, a mysterious city that holds the crypts of deceased French kings. Sent on a mission to the extensive underground of the Basilica, Arno will face a faction of new foes, the Raiders, populating its catacombs. Equipped with a lantern and a new powerful weapon, the Guillotine gun, Arno will have to navigate the dangerous passageways to uncover the darkest secrets of the city.

In addition to a fully-fledged main single-player campaign, Assassin’s Creed Unity - Dead Kings also offers new open world activities and side missions, including new Murder Mysteries, enigmas and cooperative missions. Both single-player and cooperative modes enable players to unlock new weapons, gear and outfits that carry over between Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed Unity - Dead Kings.
