Just when you thought there couldn't POSSIBLY be any more AC games this year.

Dead Kings takes place after Unity ends, starring Arno. Set in the city of Saint Denis and in its catacombs. promised to be darker than the main game.

Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China stars Shao Jun from AC: Embers, in what looks similar to the stealth sidescroller Mark Of The Ninja, but with a stylized 2.5D look.

Season pass also adds the pre-order bonus missions and weapons to the main game, plus I think one new mission and some new weapons.

Sad that Shao Jun didn't star in her own full 3D game, but the game she's in looks really good nonetheless. Interested in Dead Kings, I hope it's challenging gameplay-wise. I love the whole "grizzled old assassin with a tattered cloak" thing, and it's great that it'll be in an entirely new location. I hope it stands on its own as well as Freedom Cry did.

Would love to see Shao Jun's adventure and her gameplay.

well, as i only play AC games (and W_D, which i consider the adopted brother to AC), i guess this finally gives me more of a reason to go to the PS4/Xbone generation soon....

maybe with my first paycheck.

maybe i should just focus on showing up to work for my first day in a week first.

better shot of Dead Kings "cover" art:

Reminds me a lot of Bloodborne/Dark Souls.

The name in particular sounds similar to Dark Souls 2's trio of DLC, which follow the naming convention "The Crown of the ___ King".

I hope it's also similar in that the new city's challenges match up to how foreboding and menacing it looks.

Oh, and that weapon he's holding is called the "Guillotine Gun". Which is cool, if a bit on the nose. Hopefully its inclusion doesn't mean you'll be forced into a ton of combat.

Shão jun's game looks very interesting. I like the whole 2.5D style.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humor is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Rick's nihilistic outlook, which
