Originally released as an add-on, Freedom Cry had been announced as a stand-alone game – not requiring Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag to play. Freedom Cry will be available for exclusive for download on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 consoles on February 19th and on PC February 25th.
Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry centers on the story of Adewale, a man born into slavery. Once a pirate and now a trained Assassin, Adewale ends up shipwrecked in 18th-century Haiti, infamously known to house the most brutal slavery in the West Indies. The more Adewale fights to get back to sea and to freedom, the more he’s drawn into the slave community. As Adewale forms a crew of his own and using his skills as an Assassin, he sets to liberate and deliver merciless justice in plantations and cities alike.
