Assassin’s Creed IV: Freedom Cry Set To Be A Standalone Release
Assassin’s Creed IV was set to have story DLC titled Freedom Cry which would follow the Jackdaw’s Quartermaster Adewale as he incites a slave revolt in Saint Domingue. It sound like a great piece of DLC except it isn’t DLC for the game anymore.
Instead Freedom Cry is going the way of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and being set up as a standalone release on PS3, PS4 and PC. Apparently Xbox One, Wii U and Xbox 360 won’t be getting the same attention. At least, there has been no word from Ubisoft yet regarding those consoles.

The PlayStation versions will release on February 18 with the PC version to follow a week later (that seems needless) and all versions will retail for $15. It’s $10 if you own the base AC IV game.
According to Ubisoft exec Tony Key, they’re making this move because they see it as being a unique enough experience to warrant it: “Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry delivers key elements of an Assassin’s Creed game, including a new hero, new environments and new weapons.”
It may not be as drastic a reusing of the base game’s assets as Blood Dragon but it certainly sounds like a very promising and intriguing setup for what could be some great content.
