Assassin’s Creed IV DLC ‘Freedom Cry’ being released as a standalone game

Posted on February 5, 2014 AT 01:10pm

Assassin’s Creed IV’s Freedom Cry DLC is being released as a standalone game on PS3, PS4, and Windows PC later this month, Ubisoft announced today.

As a standalone version, Freedom Cry will not require Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag to play—much in the same vein as Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon didn’t require Far Cry 3. The standalone Freedom Cry hits PS3 and PS4 February 18 and PC February 25, with all versions priced at $14.99.

Freedom Cry tells the story of Adéwalé, Edward Kenway’s right-hand man, 15 years after the events of Black Flag. When Adéwalé, now an assassin, shipwrecks on the island of Saint-Domingue, he finds his past life as a slave surging back to the forefront of his mind as he begins a quest to liberate the island’s enslaved inhabitants. The DLC’s narrative was penned by Jill Murray, writer of Assassins’ Creed III: Liberation.

Freedom Cry originally launched across consoles not named Wii U December 17 and Windows PC December 19. For more on ACIV’s first story-driven DLC expansion, check out Ray’s review.
