Hello,

I have Assassin's Creed IV on PC. I noticed that the DLC is already in my Steam's downloadable content list. But, I was not able to play its content. To find it, etc.

How can I access and play the DLC?

Thanks in advance for any help. :)

The tab in the upper right corner of the main menu that said Aveline should now say Aveline/Freedom Cry.

Hi,

This is strange. I can only see "Aveline", there. I have already verified the Steam's game cache, and even so I can't access Freedon Cry. :(

Have you tied the Season Pass to your Uplay Account?

Mine only said Aveline as well. I did notice Adewel (Quarter Master dude) pic to the left so I clicked as if I was opening Aveline. The next screen gave me the option of Aveline or Freedom Cry. Now that I started Freedom Cry it shows up on the main menu in the box it shares with Aveline.

Right click on the game in your Steam library, then click properties, then the DLC tab on the window that pops up. If Freedom Cry doesn't show there, it hasn't downloaded thru Steam yet. That same DLC window will also show if you have the AC IV Season Pass, and if you do, Freedom Cry should download. The Season Pass and Freedom Cry should also show as owned in UPlay.

Same problem here, I have Season Pass, its DLC shows as installed in Steam, CD-key is activated in uplay but nothing shows up in game, Aveline only.

4 DLC islands are on map as they should though.

not sure if you meant season pass key by saying CD-Key is activated, if not, then got to your steam library, right click on the game and select CD Key, copy the SEASON PASS key and activate it in UPlay. if thats what you did, then try to activate season pass key in "Extras" within game's main menu then restart the game and see if it unlocks.

Did anyone ever fix this??

I have the Gold Editon directly for the UPlay client
Gold is supposed to come with Season Pass
I assume that Season Pass is meant to come with Freedom Cry???

Ok, I see what's going on here
Gold / Deluxe are the same thing depending on if you reside in the States or stuck in a 2nd rate country
Deluxe doesn't contain Season Pass which has the Freedom Cry extended into Adewale's story
Deluxe just comes with some unnecessary cosmetic cr*p and Aveline

Note that Amazon lists Gold as including Adewale but I think they are advertising wrong in comparrison to what Uplay says that Deluxe offers.
