Assassin's Creed Freedom Cry standalone announced for PS4, PS3, and PC

Ubisoft has announced the upcoming release of Assassin's Creed Freedom Cry, a standalone version of the already-released downloadable content for Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag. As a standalone, players will not be required to purchase Assassin's Creed 4 in order to experience Adéwalé's adventure in Freedom Cry.

For those who hadn't purchased the DLC, Freedom Cry tells the story of Adéwalé, a man born into slavery who would later become second-in-command for AC4's main story protagonist Captain Edward Kenway. Set 15 years after the events of the main campaign, Adéwalé is shipwrecked in 18th-century Haiti. In an effort to return to the sea, Adéwalé helps the locals in exchange for a crew and a ship, but the more he fights for freedom from slavery, the more he is forced to face his past.

“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 Ubisoft's Tony Key. “Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry delivers key elements of an Assassin’s Creed game, including a new hero, new environments and new weapons.”
