Assassin's Creed Unity DLC reportedly outed by retailer

Chemical Revolution mission will allegedly be offered as a pre-order bonus

Retailer promotional material has reportedly outed the first Assassin's Creed Unity DLC.

The image below, via Access the Animus, suggests select retailers will be offering a pre-order bonus mission called Chemical Revolution.


The chemical revolution was centred on the work of French chemist Antoine Lavoisier, who has been dubbed the 'father of modern chemistry'.

Unity was officially announced on March 22 following the appearance of leaked promotional material.

A collaborative effort between ten Ubisoft studios, the next entry in the historical open-world series will take players to the French Revolution later this year on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

The game has been rumoured to feature a new four-player "narrative" co-op mode, separate from competitive multiplayer.

Assassin's Creed will also appear in some form on PS3 and Xbox 360 this year, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said in May.

His comments lined up with rumours of Assassin's Creed Comet. The PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 title reportedly serves as a more direct sequel to Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, letting players sail the Atlantic coast of North America and encounter characters from past series entries.

Ubisoft will host its annual E3 media briefing on June 9, from 3pm PT (11pm UK),
