It comes out today for XO and PC and tommorow for PS4.Also,it supposedly takes around 3 hours to complete the main story,so some of the people may actually finish it today

Seems to be a bit of a glitch fest so far. I keep falling through walls and getting stuck. And I am unable to progress because it won't let me refill the lantern.

Edit: I was being an idiot about the lantern, just forgot the controls.

I beat the main history of DLC : The DLC is awesome the best in the series but : the plot have varios WTF and unexplained moments, ghosts simply exist in the series universe now ? oh, I forged, logic is a nerd thing if a supernatural element is *** pulled is art ''magical realism'', and egypt is hardly implied as a setting but we already know about victory I very confused now.

Horrible ending...it was even worse than AC unity's main story ending.

Nothing can be worse than "Ohp, all of this was useless, you're useless".....unless.....

Believe it is even worse. Far and away the worst AC-DLC yet, a Tomb Level trifurcated into five or six parts, with original gameplay taken from Zelda's Twilight Princess (the Lantern and Refill part) and one variation from God of War III. It has no pay-off in terms of Arno's story, it actually muddles parts of UNITY even more, if that's possible.

Anyway, it's free but I can't believe people seriously planned to charge money for this. Such shoddiness, lack of imagination, guts. And by the way, "darkest story of the Franchise"...no that's still Freedom Cry where we saw a slave-ship shipwreck around us with hundreds drowning with them.

The level of mendacity and deceit displayed by Unity and its developers is unimaginably appaling.

Come on, Lama hehehe, you know I wont just believe you like that. We already disagree on so many things, chief among them is that there's nothing worse than what Bishop said, so.

So many people claim that DK not only clears up things like:
-Arno and the Brotherhood
-Arno and Napoleon
-Arno and his watch (if you know what i mean)

but also makes the story more confusing!Please tell me it is not true...(no spoilers please)

Also:Arno going to Egypt+Napoleonic Wars=Arno sequel=/=ACVictory----->WTF UBI?
Again please use spoiler tags if needed

Dead Kings is the worst AC DLC i have ever played. It is even more boring and pointless than the main game itself

I am afraid that is true, the story makes even less than before.

Anyway, regarding your question in the spoiler tag? I think it's a refutation of an Arno sequel. He's not going anywhere, that's clear at the end.

As predicted, the community is negative. Always. Dead Kings brought back some of my favorite things about the series, including more First Civ aftifacts, unanswered questions, and opportunites for speculation. I'm amused at people criticizing DK for having unanswered questions, since that was the hallmark of the Ezio trilogy. People are so predictable.

Did anyone else notice that at the end Arno said give this to Al Mualim?

yeah but we got more games with Ezio and since we know that Arno won't get another game (they abandoned the whole multiple games with same protag idea some time ago) its just frustrating
So what we are predictable because we don't have the same opinion as you? fanboys are predictable

I haven't completed Dead Kings' story yet, but I've enjoyed it. My only complaint is that it's pretty short.

yea i knew it meant mentor in arabic, but just felt so wrong for him saying it. Like how he said rest in peace in Italian rather than french. Although I do wonder who the mentor in Egypt is

I was going to post a review, but most of it would have been covered by my main review of Unity - previously posted.

Dead Kings is ok. Not great, not terrible.

What I liked:

That we were focused back on First Civilisation content, and a nice closure to the French story.

That we have a link to Egypt, a very popular choice for a setting. Just who is Al-Mualim?

That Eve was mentioned. May be an unrelated individual, but I happen to think it is THE Eve. Who else would be after such an artifact after all?


What I disliked:

Found it impossible to stealth in the caverns. Just ended up killing wave after wave of enemies which got tiresome.

The Lantern and puzzles were a bit too much for me. In a series reknowned for being able to move fast and freely, these just slowed me down and felt unnecessary.

The architecture of the temple was nothing like the First Civilisation designs of old. What happened to the futuristic sharp lines? This felt too gothic and out of place honestly.

After the whole of France seems after the artifact, Arno just passes it blindly over and entrusts a random courier to deliver it. Really? lol.

Had a few sound glitches, but all was ok until I returned to Paris. Then Arno became unresponsive once loaded. Oh Ubi... :p

"Requiescat in pace" is latin, not Italian ...

Both French and Italian language have their roots in Latin ;)

French "Repose en paix"
Italian "Riposi in pace"

lol

But seriously, just completed it and wow. So much cringe. Arno uttering 'Requiescat in Pace'... ugh. He's not Ezio! He will never be Ezio! Let it go, Ubisoft!
Or how about when he said 'I will find a way. For I am an Assassin' Wut? you were kicked out of the Brotherhood. You never respected their creed or conditions. You were willing to avenge a Templar and never questioned his practices nor cared if the targets were Templars or not as long as you got your revenge. Now you're a mourning, layabout ready to leave Paris because your girlfriend (who ever even loved you) died and only decided to save France because some 7 year old made you feel bad about it. 'Assassin' in name only.
