Assassin's Creed: Unity story DLC Dead Kings out next week

For free.

The Assassin's Creed: Unity story downloadable content Dead Kings launches next week.

The DLC, which launches on PC and Xbox One on 13th January, and on PlayStation 4 on 14th January, is free.

Ubisoft made the once premium add-on free by way of apology for Unity's buggy launch state.


Dead Kings continues Arno's story after the events of Unity. Arno leaves Paris for 1794 Saint Denis, a city home to the crypts of dead French kings, on a mission to the underground of the Basilica. You face new enemies, the Raiders, while down there, but Arno has a lantern and a new weapon: the Guillotine gun, to help him out.

The single-player campaign is the main event, but there are also new open world activities and side missions, Ubisoft said, including new Murder Mysteries, enigmas and co-op missions. You can unlock new weapons, gear and outfits that carry over between the main game and the DLC.

Remember, those who bought a Unity Season Pass can get a free game from Uplay, Steam, Xbox Live or PlayStation Network. Pick one from the following list (you've got until 15th March 2015):

  • The Crew
  • Far Cry 4
  • Watch Dogs
  • Assassin's Creed Black Flag
  • Rayman Legends
  • Just Dance 2015

Oh, those who bought the Season Pass also get the 2D spin-off Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China. There's no release date for this yet.
