If you are a huge fan of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, you’ve probably already played Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag’s DLC Freedom Cry, starring Edward Kenway’s quartermaster Adéwalé. If, however, you have not had the chance to pick up Black Flag or you are perhaps totally new to the series, you may be interested in checking out Freedom Cry as its own standalone game. This is your chance to work yourself into the massive franchise slowly. On February 18 for PS4 and PS3 and February 25 for PC, you can grab Freedom Cry for only $14.99 and get a taste of the Assassins and their Creed. From there, the whole wide world of Assassin’s Creed is open to you. Check out the launch trailer to see a little more of what is in store for you.
“We decided to release Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry as a standalone game for both fans and newcomers to the Assassin’s Creed universe,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Ubisoft. “Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry delivers key elements of an Assassin’s Creed game, including a new hero, new environments and new weapons.”
Experience the Creed through the eyes of Adéwalé, former slave and pirate turned Assassin. After he is shipwrecked in 18th-century Haiti, he becomes embroiled in the struggle of the local Maroon people, who are fighting for their freedom in the midst of some of the most brutal slavery in the West Indies. Free them and earn their trust and the benefits that come with it. Sail the seas, search for sunken treasure, raid plantations and help the Maroons launch their rebellion in Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry.
