In this week’s “news you didn’t expect”, Ubisoft have announced that the previously released DLC for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, will be released as a stand-alone title for PS4 and PS3 on February 19th, and on PC on February 25th – there’s no word on an Xbox 360 or Xbox One release as of yet.
What this means is that you won’t need a copy of Assassin’s Creed IV to play the DLC, if you fancy buying it separately. You can read our review of the DLC, here.
Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry tells the story of Adewale, a man born into slavery. Once a pirate and now a trained Assassin, Adewale is shipwrecked in 18th-century Haiti, home to the most brutal slavery in the West Indies. In an effort to get back to the sea, Adewale assists the locals in exchange for a crew and a ship. The more he fights for freedom from slavery, however, the more he is drawn into the Maroon slave community, forcing him to face his vicious past. In the game, Adewale will take his new crew and set of weapons, including a machete and a blunderbuss, to assassinate enemies and free slaves, delivering merciless justice in plantations and cities alike. No stranger to the sea, Adewale will command a fearsome brig to take down slave owners in the Caribbean.
