Assassins Creed 4 Freedom Cry DLC Is Getting A Standalone Release
Written by Jon Sutton on 06 February 2014 at 12:50
Assassins Creed 4 Black Flag: Freedom Cry

Freedom Cry, the story-based DLC for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, is to be re-released as a standalone title later this month for those who haven’t yet picked up a copy of the base game.

For a mere £7.99/$9.99, PC, PS4 and PS3 users will be able to download the small-scale swashbuckling Haitian adventure. Freedom Cry continues the exploits of Edward Kenway’s first-mate Adewale, after he leaves Kenways crew to join the assassins…

If There's One Thing Assassin's Creed Needed It's More Machetes

Freedom Cry takes place fifteen years after the events of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Adewale finds himself shipwrecked ashore the island of Saint Domingue. He must set about freeing the region’s slaves to muster up a crew and ship to leave the cursed isle. Once aboard it’s sea shanties, grog, and keelhauling aplenty.

Classic Assassin’s Creed fare, Freedom Cry earned plaudits for being one of the strongest narratives contained in an Assassin’s Creed game. It also contains a kickass blunderbuss and a machete to boot, which makes it more than worth your while.

This isn’t the first time that Ubisoft has released standalone DLC, as seen with the exemplary Far Cry: Blood Dragon, but it does mark the first time that DLC has been converted to standalone, as far as we are aware. For Playstation owners who’ve finished off their copies of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag this marks a great opportunity to trade it in and effectively get the DLC for free.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag standalone edition will be available on the 19th February for PS3 and PS4, before arriving for PC on the 25th February. It will be priced at £7.99/9.99.

If all DLC was available as a standalone purchase would you be more inclined to buy it?

Anybody on GD not bother with picking up AC4: Black Flag but interested in downloading this shorter DLC?

Didn't get it yet thanks to my broken PC :/
anyway, I can't see why they would release a DLC as a standalone game. Yea this makes it easier to obtain and such but I guess they should make this with a larger DLC O.o still I have not played it yet so I am not sure if it deserves this or not ;)

FC: Blood Dragon doesn't look like a DLC, feel like whole new game to me. Maybe Freedom Cry also same like Blood Dragon, long gameplay!

It has its own free open world but its story is of course shorter than ACIV :)

Now this is much better deal than the Season Pass as the pass gives only MP maps and this and the maps are nothing special. Will probably get it.

first of all this isnt AC 5 it is an expansion for AC 4. DLC. also what the problem with it? Adewale is 3 times the assassin Edward was. he was much more like Ezio compared to Edward.
