The Assassin's Creed IV single-player DLC campaign, Freedom Cry, will be released as a standalone title in February, Ubisoft has announced.
Freedom Cry, which has players take the role of Black Flag protagonist Edward Kenway's first mate Adéwalé in a campaign set 15 years after the events of AC4, will be released on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on February 18 in North America, February 19 in Europe, and worldwide on February 25 for PC.
The game will not be coming to Xbox One or Xbox 360. Why's that? "Sony and Ubisoft have built a solid partnership on the Assassin’s Creed brand, and Sony shares our enthusiasm for expanding the reach of this game," said a Ubisoft spokesperson to GameSpot.
Ubisoft did not mention a specific price for the standalone version of Freedom Cry, but the DLC is available for Assassin's Creed IV for about $10.
"With the strongest ensemble cast in the franchise, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag wasn't short of assassins and pirates worthy of their own playable tales, DLC or otherwise. Freedom Cry is more than just another Assassin's Creed IV chapter with a reskinned protagonist, but its troubled handling of dark themes makes this a turbulent voyage," said reviewer Miguel Concepcion in GameSpot's Freedom Cry review.
