Ubisoft has announced that the single-player adventure, Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry, will be available today, February 19th as a stand-alone game exclusively for download on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 computer entertainment systems.
The Windows PC version will be available on February 25. Originally released as an add-on adventure for Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry will not require the purchase of Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag.
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.
Blackbeard’s Wrath, the first DLC for the title, was released in December 2013, as three new characters join the hunt, with each character bringing their unique skill set to battle for the title of best assassin.
