That’s a hell of a title.
Normally we wouldn’t be that excited about DLC being announced before a game is even about, but Ubisoft’s first trailer for the Freedom Cry DLC for Assassin’s Creed IV looks mighty impressive. Starring a seemingly brand new protagonist, it seems that you’ll be fighting as a slave-turned-assassin within the same game world as the main campaign. The character switch in ACIII worked well and the opening was one of the stronger parts of the game, so we’ll take this over a simple pack of samey missions any day. Here’s hoping the events depicted in the trailer are part of the gameplay, I can’t remember any other games letting you escape as a slave and see what they had to go through. Although I’m bettering there’ll be more parkour than there was in real life.
You can get the Freedom Cry DLC if you pick up the Season Pass for Assassin’s Creed IV – more details here
