Back in December Ubisoft released the first campaign-focused DLC for Assassin's Creed IV. Titled Freedom Cry, the content put players in the shoes of Adéwale, the first mate in the main story of Assassin's Creed IV.
Today Ubisoft announced that Freedom Cry will be released as a stand-alone title for PC and PlayStation consoles. The content will be released for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on February 18 and for PC on February 25. The game will be a digital download and will be priced at $15 on all platforms.
“We decided to release Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry as a stand-alone game for both fans and newcomers to the Assassin’s Creed universe,” said Tony Key, SVP of sales and marketing at Ubisoft. “Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry delivers key elements of an Assassin’s Creed game, including a new hero, new environments, and new weapons.”
The story of Freedom Cry follows Adéwale as he sails the Caribbean with his own crew and his own set of unique, brutal assassin's skills. Along the way players can choose to free slaves from the plantations of St. Domingue (known today as Haiti) and help build up communities of Maroon warriers.
