Assassin's Creed Freedom Cry

Ubisoft announced a stand-alone release for Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry exclusively on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry will be available for purchase on the PlayStation Network on Feb. 18.

Freedom Cry was previously available as an add-on adventure for Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag. This stand-alone release will not require owning a copy of Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag to play it. The stand-alone will be a console exclusive on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, but will also be available on PC. The console release is Feb. 18 and the PC release is Feb. 25, both will retail for $14.99. Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry is still available for purchase as a DLC add-on for Black Flag either by itself or as part of the Season Pass.

In Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, Adewale act as quartermaster on the Jackdaw. Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry follows Adewale’s story as a man born a slave. The former pirate turned Assassin gets shipwrecked in 18th-century Haiti. Haiti is home to the most brutal slavery in the West Indies, an injustice that Adewale ends up fighting against in order to get back to sea. In order to get off Haiti, Adewale assists Hatian locals to earn a ship and a crew. As he fights to free slaves, he gets sucked into the Maroon slave community, which brings up memories of his past as a slave himself. Freedom Cry gives Adewale a new crew and a new set of weapons. Adewale has access to a machete and a blunderbuss to facilitate his assassinations and help free slaves. Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry also will feature sea combat and Adewale commands his own ship to fight Carribbean slave owners.

Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry releases as a stand-alone adventure on PS4 and PS3 Feb. 18 and on PC Feb. 25.

Quick Take

Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag was a surprisingly good and satisfying game, especially after Assassin’s Creed III. Adewale is one of the best characters from the game. It was exciting when Ubisoft originally announced Freedom Cry as DLC for Black Flag with Adewale as the protagonist. Ubisoft giving Freedom Cry the Blood Dragon treatment is really cool. This will get Adewale’s adventure out to a larger group of people as a stand-alone game. It being a console exclusive to Sony consoles is interesting, but also not surprising considering the relationship Ubisoft has cultivated on Sony consoles for Assassin’s Creed over the years.
