Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry will be available soon as a stand-alone game. It will be available to download on PS4 and PS3 for $14.99 on February 18. The game will also be available for PC on February 25. Originally released as an add-on adventure for Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry will not require the purchase of Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag.
“We decided to release Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry as a stand-alone 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.”
Freedom Cry tells the story of a man born into slavery named Adewale. Once a pirate and now a trained Assassin, Adewale is shipwrecked in 18th-century Haiti and must get a new ship and crew.
There was no word if a stand-alone version of Freedom Cry would be coming later to Xbox One and Xbox 360. For more information on the game, you can check out the game’s official site.
