‘Assassin’s Creed: Unity’ Drops Trailer for Free “Dead Kings” DLC

And here we have the first cinematic trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Unity DLC “Dead Kings” — you know, the DLC Ubisoft promised us for free to say “we’re so, so sorry about Unity. Really, so sorry.”

Follow Arno as he explores the city of Saint-Denis and its extensive, open world underground. Saint-Denis is an ancient necropolis with an intricate network of catacombs and deep caves that hide the best-kept secrets of the French kings.

Why does it feel like Assassin’s Creed‘s cinematic trailers turn out better than the games themselves? Like the one for Unity, my god. Sometimes I rewatch that just to bask in the pretty. Maybe Ubisoft should just make the leap and start churning out Assassin’s Creed movies every year instead.

“Dead Kings” will be available for download January 13 for Xbox One and PC, and on January 14 for Playstation 4 users.

Trailers: Top 11 Most Anticipated E3 2014 Video Games

Let’s get to the list!

‘Assassin’s Creed: Unity’ Will Be Set During French Revolution

Earlier today Ubisoft confirmed rumors about their latest addition to the Assassin’s Creed series with a sneak peek trailer showcasing deserted streets, a roaring mob, and a guillotine. Looks like we’re headed to 18th century France!

This trailer comes on the heels of leaked early gameplay images from Kotaku, so Unity being set during the French Revolution is probably not news to anyone at this point, but it’s always nice to make things official. Plus, we got some pretty alpha game footage!

Qu’ils mangent de la brioche [Let them eat cake]!

So here’s a true first look at in-game footage from Assassin’s Creed Unity. Stay tuned – we’ll have many more exciting details for you in the months ahead!
