Assassin's Creed: Freedom Cry hitting PS Store as standalone spin-off

on 5 February 2014

Ubisoft has announced that Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag add-on Freedom Cry will be released as a standalone, downloadable title exclusively for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC.

Priced at $14.99, the game will release on February 18. There is no word as to if this is a timed exclusive, leaving Microsoft consoles in the dark, but it is nonetheless exciting for any Assassin's Creed fans interested in a Black Flag side story that follows the explots of Adewale, Edward Kenway's Jackdaw helmsman.

Freedom Cry, which originally released as DLC on December 18, takes place 15 years after the events of Black Flag. Here's a synopsis from today's press release, with the game's trailer below:

"Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry tells the story of Adewale, a man born into slavery. Once a pirate and now a trained Assassin, Adewale is shipwrecked in 18th-century Haiti, home to the most brutal slavery in the West Indies. In an effort to get back to the sea, Adewale assists the locals in exchange for a crew and a ship. The more he fights for freedom from slavery, however, the more he is drawn into the Maroon slave community, forcing him to face his vicious past. In the game, Adewale will take his new crew and set of weapons, including a machete and a blunderbuss, to assassinate enemies and free slaves, delivering merciless justice in plantations and cities alike. No stranger to the sea, Adewale will command a fearsome brig to take down slave owners in the Caribbean."
