DEAD KINGS, AN ALL-NEW CAMPAIGN

Saint Denis, 1794. Following the events of Assassin’s Creed Unity, journey with Arno to the ominous rural city of Saint Denis. Follow him as Arno explores the troubling open-world city of Saint Denis and its extensive underground universe ̶ an ancient necropolis with an intricate network of catacombs and deep caves that hide the best-kept secrets of the French kings.

Use Arno’s lantern to advance in the dark, fend off the animals creeping around the catacombs, and solve ancestral puzzles. Alternatively, put out the lantern and become one with the shadows.

Unlock the powerful new Guillotine Gun to unleash both explosive destruction and close-combat havoc.


 Paris, 1789. The French Revolution turns a once-magnificent city into a place of terror and chaos. Its cobblestoned streets run red with the blood of commoners who dare to rise up against an oppressive aristocracy. Yet as the nation tears itself apart, a young man named Arno will embark upon an extraordinary journey to expose the true powers behind the Revolution. His pursuit will throw him into the middle of a ruthless struggle for the fate of a nation, and transform him into a true Master Assassin.

Introducing Assassin's Creed® Unity, the blockbuster franchise's new chapter powered by the all new Anvil engine, rebuilt from the ground up for new gen. From the storming of the Bastille to the execution of King Louis XVI, experience the French Revolution as never before - and help the people of France carve an entirely new destiny.

Claustrophobic Delight

Reviewed by on

This game is a good addition to the Assassins Creed series. It contains wonderful aerial views and claustrophobic city streets of French Revolution Paris. Although it is plagued by some glitches in the game play and crowds that will literally drive you up the walls, but very enjoyable side quests and characters. Not the best Assassins Creed game ever, but a solid 3/5.

I usually love AC games, but the bugs and large patches ruined the experience. It still got the fun aspects of a usual AC game and beautiful graphics. But all is to clunky.. this should have stayed in development longer. I would rather recommend the follow up Syndicate which were bringing the genre back on track
