The DLC was received with mixed reviews. Reviewers praised the level design and gameplay for being more difficult than the original. At the same time some were disappointed the length of the DLC compared to its price and the lack of story progression.
Ubisoft made the controversial decision to not release the epilogue for PC, which did get the original game. A Ubisoft community manager stated that the DLC was not released on PC due to "business reasons". The decision led to an outcry in the PC community.
