London, UK — January 6, 2015 — Today, Ubisoft® announced that Assassin’s Creed® Unity - Dead Kings, the downloadable campaign that continues Arno’s story after the events of Assassin’s Creed® Unity, will be available for free to all purchasers of Assassin’s Creed Unity for the Xbox One games and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC on January 13, and on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system on January 14 2015.

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.

yeay! and the release is pretty close :)

i read somewhere its supposed to be about 8 hours long and have something like an outpost mechanics, like in .... the rest of UBI games?

i hope there will be a lot of side content in that region or at least good replayability since i am one of those who enjoyed almost any content ACU had to offer and... well... just want more of it.

Also more co op missions, that's great

A CGI trailer for a DLC, that's unexpected, but always welcomed.






When is the Rogue DLC being announced? :cool:

Awesome trailer but Im not falling for the hype this time round. Obviously Ill still play it just to see how they conclude Arno's story, but its not like Im counting down the days.

I feel like Ubisoft is just god-tier as far as cinematic trailers are concerned. Like on another level. Id be happy with a movie thats made like this.

P.S. So is Napoleon an antagonist? You can see him supplying the raiders with some coins. That would be pretty awesome if he was.

Definitely. If there's one thing Ubisoft delivers with perfection, it's CGI trailers/teasers.

Maybe short movie about Shao Jun one day? *puppy eyes* :rolleyes:


And Napoleon being the antagonist - could be interesting, since there is a hint in Unity where it looks like [SPOILER] he finds the apple. So maybe he's obsessed? Arno looks like much more of a real character here. And the destroyed church... Jeez, this could be better than the main game.

It's not FREE--everyone who played Unity in November/December paid for it--some more than others. :)

But yeah it looks great...if the game is 1/2 as good as the trailer, I'll be pleased. Thanks for posting, Mr. Shade.

First-Civ force fields appear to be popular among the writers nowadays. :D

Here's a little wish: A Raton cameo ... I know it won't come true, but I can still have my wish, right?

Literally just started Unity last night so not watching this for fear of spoilers but I have read there is modern day stuff hinted. This is what Ubisoft should look at. DLC primarily featuring that so it is optional for those who want it and those who do not. Makes sense. That or packing side missions with it also.

That's an interesting point about Napoleon. You can get his outfit as part of the Dead Kings DLC too, so you may be right

Napoleon as Emperor did things that go against what the Assassins believe in, he is bound to, at some point, stop being an ally at least.

Too bad we cannot kill him....
Anyway,i hope that ACU:DK will have the story that ACU should have.

Also,someone mentioned 8 hours.LOL
The main game was like 13-15 hours,so i guess the real lenght of DK must be around 3-4.

Cool trailer, but why do I have the nagging feeling this DLC is pulling the same thing as The Lost Archive? Aka having a disappointing modern day in the main game and leaving the actual revelations for the DLC? At least this time it's free (sort of), but if it's the same practice then that's just despicable. Both games had the same creative director, too...

Namikaze_17
01-06-2015, 07:36 PM
Damn, just by hearing and looking at Arno I feel sorry for him.

The trailer was good.

Good to know there's something first-civ related going on. ^__^

I like everything but the focus on that stupid grenade launcher. We are playing in 18th century France, do not give us grenade launchers, give us new melee weapons such as daggers, throwing knives etc or even a rifle with a bayonet would be better. I am digging everything else. Wont get hyped though, it will probably be the usual infiltrate, kill dudes, and we will see a first civ site for like 5 minutes.

Very glad that it is free!

I really hope that it will explain if Arno re-entered the brotherhood.Also,i hope that it has a decent story that somehow saves the garbage of ACU.Maybe a Juno reveal at the end?

Arno will confront Napoleon and spare him,like Ezio did witn Rodrigo.You heard it from here first.

In case someone missed it in my former post. The idea of Napoleon being the antagonist isn't to odd... UNITY SPOILERS AHEAD

We all know he had an apple and we all know what those things can do with your mind. So it could be the cause, why he and Arno are no more allies.

01-06-2015, 07:56 PM
Sexy AF trailer! When Arno started running, that got my hype boiling.

I've barely touched the Paris Stories in Unity (200 hours in, yet 91%), but Jan 13 is a good enough incentive for me to finish the game before its DLC is out.

Napoleon had the Apple. Maybe he kills Arno with it or uses it to escape.

I hope there's nothing about Juno. I just want them to drop that silly plot already and pretend it never happened.

... or it could just be that everything 1st-Civ related is now effectively an 'easter egg', including the force field zap in today's trailer that got everyone instantly hyped. I look forward to what role Napoleon might play in Dead Kings; but I'm really not expecting much in terms of 1st Civ artefacts.

You and me both.

I'd like to see something more focused on the timeline, like FC. First Civ artifact is the catalyst, Arno and Napolean's relationship builds up, Arno gets some closure, end of the DLC.

Is the outfit he's wearing on the promotion picture already in the game? I know there's a 'Franciade outfit' in the game, but it features Arno's blue colour palette. This one is more of a dark brown.

Unfortunately I can't check right now...

It could also have to do with the apple, but I really hope a Juno appearance happens. It would be hilarious if this DLC is half as long as the main game and is more relevant to the overarching narrative than the main game is

Like Megas_Doux, I wish they never started in the Juno direction, but since that's pretty much the modern day I'd rather that be there than not there. I would want them to drop it, but they're not going to

Hey does anyone know whose composing the soundtrack for this DLC? I'm not sure if it was announced anywhere

Oh my God, that trailer! That was the first ever thing I saw of AC. I was in Toys R Us (yes I was 7 or 8) & that trailer was on. I went back with my mother like a week later just so I could see the trailer again & find out what it was called. Such memories.

Anyway, about this new trailer. I'm actually very excited. The first civ stuff is exactly what they need to make AC interesting again & I'm really glad there are more coop missions, so I can finally play them with my friends.

Same here only on Sequence 4 (doing mostly side stuff enigmas etc). Will the Xbox auto download it or do I need to find it on UPLAY?. or Xhox Store?

this might sound like a stupid question but are we going to be allowed to use everything from the playthroiugh we already have?

I planned to play Arno as a true master assassin that's why I'm working to get that rank and unlocking all the master outfits, or will it only be the DLC stuff available during dead kings?

I don't think it's a stupid question. I'm trying to think of a DLC game that followed the main character in the post-main-game timeline for precedent: Freedom Cry was post game but a different character; ToKW was sort of a different timeline for Connor and all the Ezio add-ons were within the timeframe of the main game, IIRC. I would think older, wiser, more experienced Arno would have better stats.

There is this line from Shades OP:

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.

I guess we'll know next week.

Wow, that trailer was awesome. I haven't seen a cinematic trailer for a game before. Maybe that means it's good. :):rolleyes:

My least favorite part of this since they announced it is the guillotine gun. I don't care for my assassins to have big grenade launchers. Shay's was cool, and you could make the guys go to sleep. A grenade launcher isn't really stealthy or assassin, but I guess I'll deal with it.

I hope this surpasses my favorite DLC, Freedom Cry. TOKW is almost tied with it though. AC DLC's are generally really awesome. I still need to play the ones from AC2, ACB, and ACR. Is the one in AC2 any good?

Glad to see some First Civ stuff. Maybe we'll learn some more things about them. Hopefully it will all be interesting.

The AC2 DLCs are nothing special. Just 2 standard sequences that should've been in the game anyway

It's two(!) entire sequences near the end of the game that were cut out. So yes, it adds something to the story.

They're 2 good sequences that they never finished before the release of the game. They add more locations and some new chase breakers in the city if I remember correctly. They're definitely worth the purchase due to the things that they add, but they should have been in the game already.

As always Ubisoft is very good at making awesome cinematic trailers

well maybe he actually got interesting in this DLC

I'm also pleasantly surprised at the First Civ. tease hopefully that will be good

I thought some of the better parts of the game were in those sequences, especially Bonfire.

Love the CGI trailer. This reminds me of Disappearance DLC back on ACB. Good times. I'm hoping that certain questions can be answered.

Such as...

1 - Will Arno discover the box?
2 - Will Shay make an appearance or Connor(wishful thinking of course)?
3 - Neo's use of the Apple?
4 - Juno's next move?

I'm curious to how long the DLC is...


In addition to a fully-fledged main single-player campaign..

That implies lengthy and the mention of side content too.

Is it about the same length as the 3 combined episodes of AC3's Tyranny of King Washington (or longer)?
The Freedom Cry and Aveline DLC were quite short.

Looking quite forward to this - I'm getting a bit of a AC2/AC:B/AC:R vibe :S

fully fledged campaign for Unity = 2 missions :rolleyes:


^That's disappointing. Are they worth the money and do they contribute to the story/lore well?

iirc it fills in the blanks between sequence 12 and 14. How Ezio got the apple back from Savonarola

"Piece of Eden"
What could that mean? :rolleyes:

Anyway, looks like it's only 1 sequence. Let's hope it's not 2-4 missions like every other sequence
Also, only 1 co op and 1 heist mission added :(

I hope they are lengthy (lately the story missions have been quite short - AC4/AC: Rogue). A lot of the challenges/optional objectives tied to the missions have been repeated (carried over from older AC's) and most are quite simple (they need to mix it up with different/new things).

My guess the side stuff will add to the length of it.

But then again they made a proper full length motion cinematic trailer for the DLC. I don't think they have done that before with a DLC?

That right there tells me this DLC will be important.

No. While the patch also added the gear to come with the DLC, most of the 6 GB was large areas of Paris being replaced by a more performance friendly version to up the framerate.

I have no idea if this topic has already been approached, but do you guys think Ubisoft will be adding some new Co-op and Heist missions with the Dead Kings DLC release? My friends and I, we're getting pretty bored with the current missions available. Would be nice if they added a few new one's.

Well, the challenge was never an issue, in my humble opinion. The problem is that the overall number of Heists and Co-op missions is not that interesting, so to speak, so if you play quite often, as we do, it gets boring after a while.

I managed to download it through PSN but the fast travel to go to the new location still says that it's part of the dead kings dlc and I haven't downloaded it. I've finished the main story line so I just want to know if it's a problem with my download or if I still have to wait until tomorrow for the dlc to register with the game. I live in the United States if that has anything to do with it.

Wow, I was really hoping that this DLC would go smoothly but of course not.... Not only is there no co-op option for the heist but there's no co-op mission available either, and to top it off, all the weapons that I've unlocked (including the guillotine gun they give you in Sequence 13 once you un-equip it) are NOT ABLE TO EQUIP..... That's right, the guillotine guns I've been looking forward to are not able to equip.... There's literally no options once you unlock something like say The Eagle Guillotine gun, it gives you no option to equip, buy, hack, or anything else.... WTF Ubisoft.... WTF.

If you cannot access or upgrade the Eagle of Suger here is a workaround that our club is using (PS4). It will not work for the other items that unlock but cannot be accessed, but it does work for this one.

Go to your Gear Loadout screen and equip ANY rifle.
Exit from the menu and return to the in-game screen
Return to the Gear Loadout screen and equip the Pistol you want
Exit from the menu and return to the in-game screen

You should find now that the Eagle of Suger is both equipped and can be upgraded. Note - if you change to any other melee weapon you will need to repeat these steps to have the Eagle of Suger equip itself again. Hope this helps some of you out.

It really would be nice if UbiSoft would update their known glitches post with the DLC and CC stuff and let us know if there is a Patch 5 in the works and when we can expect to see it. They said the Club Competitions 2 billion point glitch "was fixed" but then that same week there were a lot of PS4 clubs posting that it had hit them (ours included) and they went silent about it.

If i works for you come back and acknowledge it so that others can see our success was not a fluke.

I haven't gotten that far yet, but thanks for sharing. For now I'd settle for equipping the bone club.


EDIT: Can confirm the workaround worked for me (PS4). Would still like to equip the bone though.

Thank you for the workaround, Mr_Treehawk.

I just want to add the following information for anyone who is having trouble getting the achievement to pop for acquiring the Eagle of Suger.

The following solution by "WORLDEATER" of TrueAchievements.com worked for me:


1) Delete all of the weapon dlc you mav have downloaded
2) Restart up the game
3) Equip a rifle
4) Equip a pistol
5) Equip the Eagle of Suger
6) Restart the game
The achievement should unlock when you are loading up your save.

Direct link to the solution: http://www.trueachievements.com/viewcomment.aspx?commentid=836231

There are also a couple more workarounds in the comment section below that solution.

So I started Dead Kings today and played 4 hours of it. Everything was fine for 45 minuites. Then after getting to the "Find Léroy" part of memory 2 I spent 3 hours and 15 minuites earching for the brat(I was so focussed I didn't notice how long it'd been) before I got suspicious and cheked online and found out it was a glitch/bug. Good news is I now know the city like the back of my hand(in fact I'll probably have nightmares about it and the kid :p ), bad news is I can't go further in the story. :(

Good news is I now know the city like the back of my hand(in fact I'll probably have nightmares about it and the kid :p ), bad news is I can't go further in the story. :(

I ran into the same problem - after I came back to the surface, there was no green marker on my minimap nor were there any clues as to where Leon might be.

However, after a quick bit of googling I found a YouTube video walkthrough of the mission. I can't find that same video now, but here's another one that shows Arno running all the way to Leon. If you can follow the same path, you'll find him yourself, even without a green marker indicating that he's there.

If it's unclear in the video, btw, Leon will be just east of a building that is covered in blue on your map. (Blue as in the blue-clad enemies patrol it, and it's a restricted zone).

Hope this helps.
