With more French assassins thank you can shake a stick at, it only makes sense that Arno's story would expand beyond the main Assassin's Creed Unity game. And indeed, just as has been the case for the past couple of years, Ubisoft has announced a Season Pass for the latest game in the series that will feature a new story campaign.

Dead Kings will see Arno depart from Paris and venture to Saint Denis, where the crypts of deceased French kings hold new mysteries and secrets. Arno will have to navigate the Basilica using the newest piece of his arsenal, the Guillotine gun, which will act as a new explosive weapon. Dead Kings will also include additional open-world missions and co-op missions.

The Season Pass will also include three new missions, new weapons (including the Fleur de Lys sword at launch), and customization options in the main Paris hub world. Players will also get the standalone Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China, a downloadable 2.5D assassin-centric experience that puts players in the role of Chinese assassin Shao Jun in the 16th century Middle Kingdom.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      The Chronicles: China seems more fun than the whole of Unity—I think I'm becoming cynical in my 30s

        a downloadable 2.5D

        ...and my interest in that is gone.

      And they're releasing a sequel to Black Flag (Rogue) that's exclusive to PS3 and 360 within the same release timeframe as Unity? wtf.. where was I on this? First I've heard of it. Too bad they're not bringing it to the PC. Pretty dumb move.

        I assume they don't want to spend the money on porting the secondary AC (and flooding the market on one platform with two games).

        It's smarter to treat this like the PSP release and wait for a few months to do the port.
