When Sony updates the PSN Store today across the PS4 and PS3, gamers who may have never got the chance to purchase Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and its impressive single-player adventure DLC of Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry, will now have that chance.
Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry as a stand-alone game will be a console exclusive to Playstation for $14.99 as a digital download. The Windows PC version will be available on February 25th for $14.99. 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.
