Assassin's Creed IV: Freedom Cry DLC Goes Standalone This Month

Soon you won't need Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag to play the game's DLC.

Assassin's Creed IV: Freedom Cry, the serialized story-based DLC for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, will be released as a standalone downloadable game later this month, Ubisoft announced today.

The $15 standalone version of Freedom Cry will be available for PS3 and PS4 on February 19, followed by the PC version on February 25. There's currently no word on when or if the standalone option will come to Xbox One or Xbox 360. Freedom Cry is available as an add-on for players who own Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag on all five platforms.

In Freedom Cry, players control Adewale, pirate, assassin and first mate to Black Flag protagonist Edward Kenway. Finding himself shipwrecked off the coast of Haiti, Adewale looks to amass a new crew for his ship by freeing local slaves. Critics have generally spoken well of Freedom Cry, though it has been almost universally described as a short experience.

I still haven't finished this DLC yet lol but it's good
I definitely hope there will be more story add-ons

This is cool. The best thing Ubisoft has done lately is start making $15 standalone games that hold up well. Blood Dragon and Gunslinger were both excellent, so it's good to see that they're going to continue moving in that direction.

I would agree with you on the Blood Dragon basis but, here while the story was interesting this DLC is short, I mean realllllly short so I honestly don't think it's worth the asking price nor can it stand alone without some beefing up first.

Perhaps the only good bit of business sense we have left in this industry.

When met with success, capitalize on it.

lol. got my self the season pass. anyway, still havent finished it yet, just started to free some slaves. busy with the main game it self. but yes,so far it does make a good impression.

This is good. however after certain time they shoudl jsut integrate the DLCs into regular game anyway. I mean as ap erson who usually play games couple years "too late" got to say that "complete edition" is always the way to go.
