There are still weeks to go before the release of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, but Ubisoft today began detailing its DLC plans for the title. The first DLC for the game will be titled Freedom Cry! and tells the backstory of a key Black Flag character.

Players will take on the role of Adewale, the crew quartermaster in Black Flag, before he joins the main character's crew. The content will take place in Port au Prince, where Adewale will organize former slaves into a Maroon resistance force. Players will also get to control a new fully-customizable ship commanded by Adewale. A live-action teaser trailer for the content provides some pretty strong imagery depicting Adewale's past:

Ubisoft is, of course, offering a "season pass" deal for upcoming Assassin's Creed DLC content. In addition to Freedom Cry, the Black Flag season pass comes with extra weapons, ship customizations, in-game clothing, and extra multiplayer character models. Freedom Cry is made up of 9 single-player missions and no further single-player DLC story content has been announced or included in the season pass offer.
