The publisher revealed Freedom Cry, which is post-launch DLC for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag that puts players in control of a new hero named Adewale. He is a freed slave and part of Edward Kenway’s pirate crew. Adewale eventually becomes a trained assassin, and players will get to guide him through his own adventure.
