Ubisoft is taking a different approach with Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag's add-on Freedom Cry by also releasing it as a standalone game. The DLC stars Adewale as a now trained Assassin.

It will release first for PS3 and PS4 February 19th but then on PC February 25th. Of course it can already be enjoyed in ACIV: Black Flag. Freedom Cry has nine missions across Haiti.
