Ubisoft has today revealed that their recently released DLC Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry will now be available as a standalone purchase, no longer requiring users to purchase the original 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.
“We decided to release Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry as a stand-alone game for both fans and newcomers to the Assassin’s Creed universe,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Ubisoft. “Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry delivers key elements of an Assassin’s Creed game, including a new hero, new environments and new weapons.”

The standalone title will be available on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 come February 18th for $14.99, with a PC release expected on February 25th for $14.99. No specifics were given for an Xbox release.

Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry was an ok DLC. It was really just a scaled down complete version of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag any way. The same tech to unlock for example your ship cannons etc but just a shorted upgrade tree. Same fighting and mission styles just less of them. Unsatisfyingly short compared to the main story but as DLC the length VS price was right
