Assassin’s Creed IV: Freedom Cry Will Stand Alone

By John Walker on February 6th, 2014.

Assasssin’s Creed IV released itself a significant DLC add-on called Freedom Cry, back in November. Naturally the PC version suffered a last-minute (almost literally this time) delay, but it did eventually emerge at £8/£10. Here’s a strange thing. Later this month the slave-themed separate storyline is getting re-released, this time as a standalone purchase. It’s a chance to say the best word in gaming! EXPANDALONE! Ooh, that felt good.

Hey, Where’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Freedom Cry On PC?

The bulk of Assassin’s Creed III’s story DLC was rather silly (though disappointingly self-serious about it), but Assassin’s Creed IV has its eyepatched sights set on much grimmer subject matter. There’s still plenty of pirating to be done, but this time the backdrop is a St. Domingue (Haiti nowadays) ruled by savage slavery. As a former slave himself, new player character and former Black Flag sidekick Adéwale naturally gets involved – though not without some initial reluctance. Given that gaming’s often wont to gloss over this sordid truth of our world, I am hopeful that Assassin’s Creed IV: Freedom Cry will tell a worthwhile tale. The fact that Assassin’s Creed: Liberation scribe Jill Murray is involved doesn’t hurt, either.
