Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry Standalone Out Now

Starting now, Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry is available for both Playstation 3 and Playstation 4. A PC release won’t take too long either, coming on February 25, 2014.

This new release is a standalone version for some downloadable content (DLC) that previously came out for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. By itself, it costs €9.99.

In Freedom Cry, players take on the story of Adéwalé, a former slave who once was rescued by the pirate Kenway in the main game. His story will unfold over a decade after those events have taken place.

With Adé, you’ll fight for freedom for those who can’t do it themselves. You’ll get to command your own ship and will have access to your own weapons. One of the more potent items in the game is a blunderbuss with a wide range.

Strangely enough, the game won’t be released for Xbox One and Xbox 360, despite the DLC being available on those platforms. In the past, Sony and Ubisoft have bonded over exclusive content in its games several times.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag takes the stealth action game to a new megalomaniac level, by employing a gigantic open world, filled with activity. Players can navigate their boat across the Caribbean seas and fight anything that stands in their way.

These naval battles are a big part of what makes the game so engaging to return to. At any second, a large scale battle could erupt that would require some dogfighting skills.
