People just can?t get enough of pirates, not only in movies but also in video games. Most pirates just go ?Y?Arrr?, ?shiver me timbers?, or find a map to a treasure cove and then they fade out, but not Edward Kenway. Edward Kenway is the protagonist of the Assassin?s Creed IV: Black Flag and like other protagonists in the Assassin?s Creed series, he?s one badass pirate assassin with a former slave Adewale as his second in command. But as every legend dies, one must rise.
The Assassin?s Creed Series has been one of the most successful games that Ubisoft has ever created not only because the characters had a hidden blade and a talent for killing people, but there is a twist of history behind it. Several gamers agreed that they learned much about the French Revolution from this game than their history class. People that played the game pretty much enjoyed every the plot, character, and the game mechanics that brought this game to where it is today.
The downloadable content, Freedom Cry, was revealed just after a couple of weeks during the official release of Assassin?s Creed IV: Black Flag. The story goes 15 years after the Black Flag and it will now continue with the life of Kenway? second in command, Adewale. Adewale finally leaves the shadow of the great Edward Kenway and then , he faced some of the most brutal slavery in the history of the West Indies. ?The players will be able to see the ruthless past of the region as Adewale while assassinating famous personalities in ?history. They will be able to handle the complex gameplay from melee combat to manning pirate ships and kicking people off the plank.
The Freedom Cry DLC is now available on most consoles and PC in US and Europe, but tough luck for the Wii U as it is not supported and they will not be able to receive it. Ubisoft is now working on the new Assassin?s Creed Unity that involves multiplayer and dynamic gameplay that you can play with your friends without someone left alone.
