Assassin's Creed Unity: Dead Kings is out and free

Dead Kings Jumpy Man

Assassin's Creed Unity's DLC-turned-apology Dead Kings is out now. It's free—hence the apology bit—and can be downloaded as a patch for the game wherever it is that you download patches for the game.

In Deceased Monarchs, you journey to the bowels of Saint-Denis; digging right up inside those bowels in search of secrets. It's all very mysterious, I'm sure.

Why is Slain Sovereigns free? It's because Assassin's Creed Unity's launch build was a clusterfuck of bugs and crashes—all wrapped up in a fancy bow made out of stunning vistas and missing faces. Ubisoft has since been hammering it back into an acceptable state, but, even without the bugs, Tom's review highlighted some problems.

Nevertheless, free stuff isn't a bad way to make amends. You can see Perished Potentates' launch trailer below.

He eventually joined full-time as a news writer, before moving to the magazine to review immersive sims, RPGs and Hitman games. Now he leads PC Gamer's UK team, but still sometimes finds the time to write about his ongoing obsessions with Destiny 2, GTA Online and Apex Legends. When he's not levelling up battle passes, he's checking out the latest tactics game or dipping back into Guild Wars 2. He's largely responsible for the whole Tub Geralt thing, but still isn't sorry.
