Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry is a standalone expansion pack for the 2013 video game Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. It was developed by Ubisoft Quebec and published by Ubisoft. The game was released for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows in February 2014.
Freedom Cry follows the story of Adéwalé, a former slave who became Edward Kenway’s quartermaster in Black Flag. The game is set in the French colony of Saint-Domingue (present-day Haiti) between 1735 and 1737. Adéwalé is shipwrecked in Saint-Domingue without weapons or crew, and he must acquire a ship and gather his own crew to free the slaves and avenge them.
The game features the same open world gameplay as Black Flag, but with some new features specific to Adéwalé’s story. For example, Adéwalé can use a blunderbuss instead of pistols, and he can recruit freed slaves to join his crew. The game also features a new set of side missions that focus on Adéwalé’s fight against slavery.
Freedom Cry was generally well-received by critics, with praise for its story, characters, and gameplay. The game was also a commercial success, selling over 1 million copies in its first week of release.
