In an effort to make up for the glitchy Assassin’s Creed: Unity launch, Ubisoft will be releasing the first DLC add-on campaign, Dead Kings, for free to all PC, PS4 and Xbox One owner who bought the game. That’s old news. The new news today is the announcement that Dead Kings will launch next week on Tuesday, January 13.

Ubisoft provided the following synopsis of the Dead Kings DLC, along with a new cinematic trailer and some new screenshots and artworks.

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 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.
