Get ready to set sail as today, Ubisoft® announced that Freedom Cry, the all-new single-player downloadable content for Assassin’s Creed® IV Black Flag™, will be available for download on December 18th on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. It will be available from tomorrow, December 17th, on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC. Freedom Cry is also part of the Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag™ Season Pass.

Freedom Cry extends the award-winning Black Flag experience with a new self-contained nine mission story featuring Edward Kenway’s first mate, Adewale, who is forced to face his past and sets out to free slaves.

Once a pirate, now a trained Assassin and illustrious member of the brotherhood, Freedom Cry tells the story of Adewale 15 years after the end of Black Flag. Taking place in 18th century Haiti, Adewale will take his new crew and new set of weapons, including a machete and a blunderbuss, to assassinate enemies and free slaves, delivering merciless justice in plantations. When the fight goes to the seas, Adewale will command the Experto Crede, a fearsome brig that can take down the slavers in the Caribbean.

For players interested in the Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag™ Season Pass, it’s available now and includes Freedom Cry, as well as the exclusive Kraken Ship Pack, additional single-player missions, weapons, skins, and collectibles, including the Blackbeard’s Wrath add-on content as well as upcoming new characters for an expansive multiplayer experience.

I have the Gold Edition with Season Pass and just got a fairly large Steam update that took at least a half hour to install. I assumed it was Freedom Cry, but when I launched the game I saw no new DLC in the download content tab of the main menu or in game. So how do you access Freedom Cry once it's installed?

I bought the AC4BF: Uplay Digital Deluxe Edition along with the Season Pass months ago directly from Uplay and Freedom Cry is still not appearing for me to download. What's going on Ubisoft? I want to play the Freedom Cry DLC, please. :(

Found the DLC ready to buy for Xbox 360. Still nothing for the pc. I do own the Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag™ Season Pass.

I'm "normally said" NOT HAPPY atm, but i'll guess i have to wait till tomorrow.

Took the words right out of my mouth.... OMFG Ubi, Stop treating your PC customers as gutter trash that you don't care about. If this is going to be delayed, you MUST write that in the description on the DLC so we know before pre-ordering. For Shame Ubisost, FOR SHAAAAAAME.

So for all I know that large AC IV Steam update I had yesterday may have been the FC DLC, but Valve has to wait for Ubi to get it working to unlock it for use?

I doubt that Ubisoft will fix the issue with syncing saves+not being saved MP progress. I've had such situation but in Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Guess what support answered me? - We are sorry but we can't restore your saves from cloud. I've uninstalled TCSC: Blacklist immedeatly after seeing that MP progress is not saved on Ubisoft server side as all normal companies have after reinstalling new OS... + All saves are saved on disk C in Program Files/Uplay folder (not in My Documents, not on disk D where the game is installed) - that's just the top line of idiocity

P.S. And that's what telling me the company which build Uplay and wanna compete with Steam. Huh?!!?! Goshhh. Not even surprised for their delay. Ubisoft you could prepare earlier and input more physical and moral activited to make your customers happier then being just who you are right now for PC community!

That's not shame, that's a disaster ...

******. The contempt UBISoft has for its PC customers is disgusting. You never launch PC content on time. Ever. I'll bet real money right now that the PC version of Watch_Dogs is delayed as well.

"For polish".

Yeah, we're pretty ****** sick of that excuse too.

I'm pretty sick of this **** myself. I'm wondering why i even bother to get an expensive version of the game while we pc players get ****ed in the *** all the time.
I also wonder why i'm not downloading this game instead of giving ubisoft my well deserved money!

It's because i REALLY like Assasin's creed. Otherwise i would download it! Think about this Ubi

Well this is the last straw for me, I have been buying ubi games for years and years and I am sick of their bs

So from now on if it says ubisoft on it, I WILL NOT BUY IT OR HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT .!.!.

It's just not worth it $$ to put up with their CHIT

It's shows up on Uplay DLC's but not in Steam.
Loaded up the game and don't see it anywhere.

It seems if you bought it directly from Uplay you can play it, but if you bought from Steam you cannot? WHAT!!?!

Steam updates their servers, according to Mr. Shade, at around 6pm GMT.

So, it's just a matter of Steam updating the game, that's all.

Seems to be FALSE for me ... despite My Uplay states I OWN the "Freedom Cry" DLC as well as I OWN the "Season's Pass" ... despite after a long download/update process by My Uplay ...
... the said DLC, "Freedom Cry", is no-where to be found nor accessible in my AC IV - Black Flag's in-game Menu.
... once again, I am ripped-off by UbiSoft.

No ****** cry dlc for steam season pass owners. Actually i would have been surprised if there were no issues, would mean Ubisoft actually care about AC fans and we all know that's not possible. The laws of physics and existance don't allow it.

Wait I'm wrong - there aren't such things as "AC fans"
Everyone hate you, Ubi :)
The ones that love you are the guys who pirate your games cuz pirated releases have no issues whatsoever.
Conclusion thepiratebay provides better service when it comes to games than ubisoft


inb4 it was steam's issue not ours
let's see if you can go that low

Got my Freedom Cry update via Steam and am 1/3 way through it now. I'm sure when Ubi gets things fixed you guys that got it on UPlay will have it too.

The game wouldn't even launch the first time after it installed though. Disabling the UPlay overlay allowed it to launch and play. I got one screen freeze in Port Au Prince while looting a corpse, but otherwise it's been playing fine.

Good luck guys, it's a good one. Nice maps and new side missions, and unlike Aveline, it's got collectibles and optional objectives just like the main game. Some good sailing and exploring too, including diving.

Yes. with mp characters pack Ubi updated ONLY steam versions' achievements. When freedom cry came out they updated every other version (so they have vanilla + both dlc achievements), but not steam.
Incompetence is such a weak word...

12-20-2013, 01:53 PM
Well, they finally showed up for me a couple of hours ago. Then I won't have any trouble actually getting the achievements since I have barely started the DLC.

Like many AC4 fans, I purchased the Deluxe Edition and Season Pass. The result: Freedom Cry shows up on my DLC but I cannot access anything at all.

Okay Ubisoft, delays may happen but you are clueless about the way to treat the very people that pay your wages - us. Any good business communicates with their customers if there is a problem so that they know the score early on. If you had done this, you would not have received as many comments as you have. People appreciate openness.

However, to totally ignore us and give the impression that you do not 'give a toss' is utterly disgusting.

This is the last time I ever buy a Season Pass early from you and I will not be spending any more money on Uplay any time soon. It beggars belief that those of us that bought direct from you will be the very last to access Freedom Cry. You seriously need to get your act together in the future.

As I stated in another thread, I'm having the same problem.

Deluxe Edition owner, with the Season Pass, on Steam.

On Uplay, it says I own the Season Pass and Freedom Cry, but the content is nowhere to be found within the game.

Seriously.. fix this.

I got the same problem.... can't found the DLC in game....
and I just copy My Season Pass CD-Key and activate it on U-play....
than the U-play show a message that I "OWN" the Season Pass....
Now I CAN find the Freedom Cry in game....
so, maybe you guys should try this way?

I have the Uplay Gold Edition of AC4 and can't see the DLC anywhere. When I view it on the dlc page in uplay it just tells me to buy it. When I check my keys in Uplay it says that I own AC4: Gold but in game I only see the Aveline missions. I still have not received a patch yet I am seeing reports of others being able to patch days ago. Do I just not get any of the DLC I paid for? :(

Edit: Well on a whim I checked the key page of Gamefly (Where I bought the game) and apparently there is 2nd Product key that was not there before. I guess the season pass has a key that is separate than the Gold Edition key. They must have put it on there and decided not inform me that I had to check back at a later date for the second key. Oh well....at least the game is updating now.

Hi there, finally a post who address my problem also.
My first post this, about this matter.

I have purchased allot of DLC contents but can not access it.
What is this matter all about?

Are we actually framed in this?
If so, this on borderline criminal act, as we do not get what we have bought..

Another thing maybe people in here can enlighten me on:
I can not access the map in Captains cabin, it says the Ubisoft servers is not available, is this a common issue or is this something just located on my PC?

Any feedback from the community will be greatly appreciated guys!
