Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag Freedom Cry - This nine mission self-contained story featuring Edward Kenway’s first mate Adewale. Born a slave, Adewale found freedom as a pirate aboard the Jackdaw where he became Edward Kenway’s second-in-command. 15 years later, Adewale has become a trained Assassin who finds himself shipwrecked in Saint-Domingue without weapons or crew, starting a new adventure of his own.

The game looks to provide those who have yet to play the newest iteration in the franchise on the next generation in its fullest experience. This kind of pack seems to be something we can certainly expect to see in the future, with DLC becoming more and more of a feature in AAA games.
