Add On Becomes Own Game, Price Not Confirmed

Assassin’s Creed 4 DLC Freedom Cry will be released as a standalone title for PS3, PS4 and PC.

Previously released as an add-on for Assassin’s Creed 4, Freedom Cry is a nine mission self-contained story that follows the story of former slave, pirate and trained Assassin Adewale.

The game will be available on PS3 and PS4 on February 19 and PC on February 25.

Ubisoft has yet to confirm a price for the standalone game, but the original DLC was priced at £7.99.

Here’s the official blurb from Ubisoft:

“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.”
