Assassin’s Creed since it first launched has been a franchise that has taken us without any surprises. With much of the games information being spread out to us, we’ve also learned that the universe is about to get a whole lot bigger. This includes several new story contents called “Assassin’s Creed Chronicles”. This chronicle setup introduces a new saga into the Assassin’s Creed universe. This will include new lands, time periods, and areas to adventure through.
The first of the new DLC’s is called “Assassin’s Creed Unity Dead Kings”. In this new story, players will be playing Arno as he leaves for Saint Denis, a city that has become troubled and has a rather large yet mysterious place that is only known for being the crypts in which the deceased French kings made their final journey. The missions are self-contained and will allow players to explore the Basilica while fighting off their enemies whom hold the key to the darkest of secrets that hide within Saint Denis. In this DLC Arno will be able to take grasp of a new weapon called the ‘Guillotine Gun’. This weapon is powerful and is capable of doing massive amounts of damage in short and long range combat. Even with this mission put aside, players will also be able to explore new side missions, new treasures to hunt, and a fully new open area to explore, but also new co-op missions to explore. In ‘Dead Kings’, players will also be able to find new weapons, gear, skills, and even outfits that will carry back over into the main game.
Within it, players will also get an extended look at Paris with new missions to take on, but also new equipment, outfits and over 30 new weapons with one being called the Fleur de Lys Sword on launch. The release of this content will also feature new customizations for their master assassin. Let alone do we get to explore only that bit of content, there has also been a new chronicle added called “Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China”. In this new story, players will take on a new adventure on the Assassin, Shao Jun. An assassin who is Hell-bent on revenge. Her adventure will be a 2.5D reimagining of the series developed by Climax Studios.
