Ubisoft have announced that single-player adventure, Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry, will be available as a stand-alone game exclusively for download on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on February 19th and PC on February 25th. Originally released as an add-on adventure for Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry will no longer require the purchase of the full game. No word has been released on the Xbox One or Xbox 360 versions.
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.
