Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry TrailerFebruary 6, 2014
Originally to be released as an add on, Freedom Cry is now it’s own stan-dalone title, and its exclusive to Sony.
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.
Many Assassin’s Creed fans are upset that Ubisoft is playing the ‘exclusive to…’ game after finding out that “Freedom Cry” will be a Playstation exclusive that will be released February 18. PC players can also pick up the stand-alone title, but not until February 25. The game also carries a $14.99 price tag but doesn’t require players to have purchased Black Flag in order to play.
