Summary

Following the events of Assassin's Creed Unity, lead Arno to the ominous city of Saint Denis. Explore the troubled city’s narrow streets and its extensive underground universe - an ancient necropolis with an intricate network of catacombs and caves, final resting place of France’s illustrious kings and their secrets. Use Arno’s new lantern to advance in the dark, fend off creatures and solve ancestral puzzles; or put it out to stealthily explore the darkness and shadows of the catacombs. Battle the Raiders, an aggressive faction of enemies desecrating Saint Denis’ tombs under obscure motives. Fight these vicious new foes with the Guillotine Gun - a powerful weapon that allows Arno to unleash both long-range explosions and close-combat havoc.

Dead Kings brings back the challenge rooms from Assassin's Creed Brotherhood and Revelations. That means a dark, dank underground setting full of platforming and puzzles. If puzzles aren't your thing, Arno's latest tale may not be for you. For everyone else, it's a solid, but unspectacular addition to Unity.

Anyone that knows Assassin's Creed will feel an innate familiarity with Dead Kings and maybe even a bit of excitement (particularly the last section, which conjures memories of a classic series moment). However, there's an air of freshness about it that works in some ways and falls flat in others. Dead Kings isn't likely to reignite anyone's love for Assassin's Creed, but it certainly won't extinguish any existing flames, either.

This new content is best experienced by those who have yet to complete the main story, since the Guillotine Gun is a sufficient stress relief tool for coping with Unity's glitches (although you will experience the story out of sequence). As much as I appreciated the shift away from the crime investigation premise of Assassin's Creed Unity, sending Arno on a mere fetch quest turns Dead Kings into the blandest kind of open-world adventure, in which a man who used to be a hero is reduced to a mere errand boy.
