Rise up against slavery with the latest single-player action-adventure game in the Assassin’s Creed franchise.
Born a slave, Adewale was sold to a plantation owner at a young age. When pirates raided the plantation, Adewale escaped and found freedom as a pirate aboard the Jackdaw, where he became famed pirate Edward Kenway’s confidant and second-in-command. Now Adewale has become a trained Assassin and an illustrious member of the Brotherhood.
Port-au-Prince in 1735 is home to the most brutal slavery in the West Indies. Two thousand oppressed men, women, and children produce sugar, coffee, cotton, and indigo under the watch of six hundred French citizens, who live in constant apprehension of a violent rebellion. After being shipwrecked in what is now known as Haiti and left without weapons or a crew, Adewale starts to assist the locals in an effort to assemble a crew and steal a ship. The more he helps, however, the more he is drawn into the Maroon slave community. Forced to face his past, he sets out to free the slaves and bring death to their captors.
Originally released as an add-on for Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, Adewale’s epic adventure is now available as its own stand-alone title; purchase of Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is not required.
AN IMPOSING ASSASSIN – Once Edward Kenway’s second-in-command, now a seasoned Assassin trained by pirates, Adewale will face his past once and for all. As strong as ever, Adewale’s power resides in his imposing stature and his self-control. Along with his hidden blades, Adewale is a master of a new set of powerful weapons, including a booming blunderbuss and a deadly machete.
FIGHT SLAVERY IN 18TH-CENTURY HAITI – Discover the secrets and horrors of Saint-Domingue and Port-au-Prince by land and by sea. Help rebuild the Maroon resistance in order to plant the seeds of emancipation among the slaves as you witness the brutal reality of slavery in the 18th century.

Freedom Cry is a standalone expansion to Assassin's Creed IV where you follow a familiar lad named Adewale of which you meet early in Black Flag. Adewale a former slave which joined Edward Kenway as a pirate then following the Assassin order finds himself in a situation in Port-au-Prince where there is brutal slavery and he tries to help everyone involved and assassinate the corrupted leaders. The game is run on the ACIV: Black Flag engine; AnvilNext.
The gameplay is more similar to the Assassin's Creed: Liberation where the maps are very small so you're forced to just stick with the main story without much exploration. This can be a good or bad thing depending on your taste.
The area the game really excels is the story. The last Assassin's Creed story that felt engaging was Ezio's life. You never really feel engaged with Connor or Edward. You definitely will for Adewale.
All in all; you pretty much get what you pay for. It's DLC for Black Flag so you won't get that many hours of content. It's definitely worth a look at because the story isn't common in video games and there's some appreciation there.
