Ubisoft has revealed the first details on Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag's upcoming single-player DLC.
Scheduled to launch before March 2014, 'Freedom Cry' offers a nine mission "self-contained" single-player story starring new character Adewale and set 15 years after the events of Black Flag.
"Born a slave, Adewale found freedom as a pirate aboard the Jackdaw as Captain Edward Kenway's second-in-command," says Ubisoft. "Fifteen years later, Adewale has become a trained assassin and finds himself shipwrecked in Saint-Domingue with no weapon nor crew, starting a new adventure of his own."
The content will be available as part of a Season Pass, offering a 20 per cent discount on purchasing each piece of AC4's upcoming DLC individually.
Also included in the Season Pass is additional single-player missions, weapons, skins and collectibles, along with new multiplayer characters.
In addition, the Season Pass will feature the "Kraken Ship Pack" containing additional customisation elements for the Jackdaw and available exclusively to Season Pass customers.
The Season Pass will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC at launch for €19.99. A UK price has yet to be announced, and it is not yet confirmed whether the DLC will also be available on Wii U.
Assassin's Creed 4 launches on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on November 1, with Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Wii U and PC versions following on November 22.
