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 ΜΆ 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.

Customer Reviews

Assassin's Creed yes,

Reviewed by on

Single player campaign - The story is intriguing and the plot has a few wonderful surprises.

Multiplayer - Definitely worthwhile, and can be completed as a single player as well - Nice big missions, which are made slightly harder by the fact that you have to rely on other people as well, or when going solo, a lot of work for one person, but very rewarding.

Gameplay - the fighting mechanics have been updated so you'll notice you'll have to get used to it again, even if you're a long-time player.

If you're into Assassin's Creed, all the usual things of the series are there so you can sit back and enjoy.

P.S The game has an updated graphics engine as well, so it is a bit more demanding than the older titles.
