PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners are licking their chops for the next-gen-only Assassin’s Creed game, Assassin’s Creed Unity. The game will release on Nov. 11, and Ubisoft has unveiled that the first batch of DLC will arrive shortly thereafter.
The Assassin’s Creed Unity Season Pass DLC will also be available for individual purchase. It won’t just include new content for the core game, but an entirely new story as well. Ubisoft took a similar approach to the Watch Dogs DLC.
The Assassin’s Creed Unity Season Pass DLC is comprised of three packs, “which will all be released by early 2015.” Two of the add-on packs expand the core game, while one is an all-new adventure. The first one will actually be available on the Assassin’s Creed Unity release date.
That launch-day element of the Assassin’s Creed Unity Season Pass will add more missions, weapons and customization options for Arno’s exploits in Paris. Players will be able to upgrade their customized Master Assassin and take on three added missions. Additionally, this pack will include more than 30 new weapons, equipment and outfits, including the exclusive Fleur de Lys sword.
The other two add-on packs don’t have release dates, but one is likely in December and the other in January or very early in February.
First up is Assassin’s Creed Unity Dead Kings, a new story campaign that takes place after the events of the main game. In this stand-alone campaign, Arno leaves Paris for Saint Denis, a troubled city with a mysterious and extensive underground that holds the crypts of deceased French kings. Players will explore the depths of the Basilica and be able to equip an explosive new Guillotine gun that supports both short and long-range combat.
In addition to the main missions, players will discover new open-world activities including treasure hunts, murder mysteries and contracts, as well as new co-op missions. Additional weapons, gear, skills and outfits can be unlocked and carried over to the main game.
The third piece of Assassin’s Creed Unity Season Pass DLC is called Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China. This is a completely new and stand-alone experience delivering a new story, new setting and new gameplay type. Players will perform parkour on the Great Wall of China, kill from the shadows and for the first time be transported to the Middle Kingdom in the 16th century, where the last remaining Assassin of the Chinese Brotherhood has returned to her homeland.
Focused on a tale of revenge, Shao Jun will use the skills she learned under Ezio Auditore to exact vengeance. Players will be able to rely on stealth to accomplish their mission, as well as Shao Jun’s martial arts training and all-new Assassin gear.
