The first thing Dead Kings gets right is its title—because it actually has one. Assassin’s Creed Unity is barely a title; an abstract noun hitched to the back of a franchise name (or “brand”), one that has only the slightest of connections to its subject matter. It’s a clumsy slant rhyme in a pop song, something that reads like it came out of a focus group. Dead Kings, then, is a huge improvement. It is evocative and accurate: there are kings in this game, and they are dead.
Don’t get your hopes up, though. There aren’t a whole lot of other ways that Dead Kings improves upon Unity.
