Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag Freedom Cry DLC Release Date on December 17 Ubisoft Announces

Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag Freedom Cry DLC will be released next week on December 17 an announcement from Ubisoft said today.

"For Adéwale, freedom isn't just a vague concept. The charismatic quartermaster who co-starred alongside Edward Kenway in Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag was once enslaved himself – until he forged his own path to freedom, then turned to a life of piracy and eventually embraced the Creed. And now he's taking center stage in the story-driven single-player DLC Freedom Cry, which will be out on December 17 on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC," a post on the Ubisoft blog said.

The new DLC will be $9.99, reports Polygon.

"Set 15 years after the end of Black Flag, Freedom Cry stars an older Adewale, who has since stepped out of Kenway's shadow to become a seasoned Assassin and valued member of the Brotherhood," Ubisoft communications manager Gary Steinman wrote in the post.

Black Flag's newest DLC, Blackbeard's Wrath was released on Tuesday for $2.99 on all platforms except for the Wii U.

The expansion pack gives players the option of three different characters in multiplayer with Blackbeard being one of them reports Polygon. The other two are The Jaguar and The Orchid.

There are four trophies as well. Sacred Land has to be completed with The Jaguar, and they must be the highest scoring player in a Domination game. Playing as Blackbeard, Queen Anne's revenge involves the gamer performing an acrobatic kill and a gun kill in less than 10 seconds. Preemptive Strike uses the Orchid character. In this mode, the gamer must block 10 abilities of the opponents using Sabotage. The last trophy, Elevator to the Gallows, can involve any player. To get this trophy, an opponent must be defeated using a lift that has been trapped with a booby Trap.

The PC version of the game launched on the 19th in the U.S. and in Europe on the 22nd. The game previously launched for the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U on Oct. 29.
