title is pretty clear. vote for your favourite SP DLC in the series and write why below. for me it has to be freedom cry because of it's great story and have a tonne of new locations to explore, having a good random events system and also a new version of the plantation missions which were my favourite missions in the main game of black flag. what was yours?

This is impossible....Lost Archives was the only one that I felt wasn't worth what I payed.

they are all good granted but you must have a favourite. Although they have been good there is so much room for improvement, I mean for me freedom cry has taken the first step to what AC dlc should be like, new characters and more importantly NEW LOCATIONS, new side missions and more exploration, being a sandbox game and the nature of AC this just seemed like a no brainer to me, I hope this kind of thing continues in the future.

Hard choice between Freedom Cry and Infamy. went with Infamy for the amazing Atmosphere it created and great mission design.

The only ones I've played are the Da Vinci Disappearance and Lost Archive. Of the two, Disappearance trumps Lost Archive by a lot. Tyranny never interested me much simply because AC3 wasn't that great on its own and the idea of superpowers adding to the mix didn't sound to great either. I'm sure it was done decently but still. I don't have AC4 yet, let alone Freedom Cry so don't know about that. The only ones I SHOULD have are Battle of Forli and Bonfire of the Vanities and I want to get those soon...

All the of the ToKW episodes! <3

I would like a multiple choice poll please, so I can vote all of the ToKW together!

probably Freedom Cry, along with the 2 AC2 DLCs a close second and the Da Vinci disappearance or the TOKW episodes a close third. just didn't like the parallel universe idea in TOKW.


The Lost Archive was fun, but I can't count it with the others as it was just too different.

Da Vinci Disappearance, followed by Bonfire of Vanities. I'm playing Freedom Cry right now and while it's pretty good for a DLC, it has some issues that make me doubt I'll play through it more than once.

Edit: Changed my mind. :p I prefer Da Vinci over Bonfire.

Lost Archive was terrible. I loved Bonfire (mostly that amazing speech by Ezio at the end), but ultimately chose Infamy because it was the start of something far more different than the AC franchise has ever tried. I hope they do fresher, more interesting AU's in the future.

I haven't played FC yet, I'll get it one day but can't see a reason too right now.

My favourites are The Bonfire of the Vanities, Da Vinci Disappearance and The Infamy.

Oddly enough, I would play TLA over ToKW again.

Oddly enough, I would play TLA over ToKW again.Maybe it's because one is a 20min bore while the other is a 5 hour one, or maybe it's maybelline.

Lost Archives filled a lot of unanswered things about Lucy. It still boggles my mind that she was a Templar.

It boggles MY mind that they shoved that little "tidbit" of info into a DLC. I will forever hate TLA and Alex Amancio for that.

OT, I was really impressed with Freedom Cry, and would love to see more of Adewale, so that's my favorite I guess. Infamy was good too, though I wasn't a fan of the unnecessary supernatural stuffs and the TOKW overall went downhill from there IMO.

Bonfire gets an honorable mention for dat speech.

Da Vinci 1

Haven't played Freedom Cry but judging from reception on the forums, it is pretty good?

This was a move I definitely didn't understand on their part. The whole dropping of the Lucy Stillman plot is pretty much my one gripe with the AC modern storyline.

Yeah, it's pretty good IMO. It's only nine missions, but that makes it longer than Da Vinci Disappearance and it's got an arguably better story with a couple of new locations. Just don't expect anything mind-blowing, and you should be pretty satisfied with it.

Yeah, the first episode was fun, but I've replayed both The Infamy and TLA twice now. While I can picture myself replaying TLA at some point in the future when I get into the mood for Revelations again, I can't really picture myself replaying The Infamy any time soon. Of course, that might change over time, who knows. The other two episodes though, screw them.

Voted freedom cry, since its the only dlc i found worth buying.

Da Vinci Disappearance without a doubt. Freedom Cry was pretty good too, but the main missions were boring and uninspired. About Battle of Forli and Bonfire of the Vanities (the latter one being very good) i don't consider them DLC as they shouldn't have been cut from the game in the first place; besides i played the PC version where they were integrated into the main story.

Tie between Freedom Cry and Redemption. I voted Redemption because I always enjoy an AC boss wielding a POE.

wow seems like its a close race between DVD and Freedom cry. I hope in future that ubi does dlc based on other characters in the game, for ac3 i would have liked dlc on achilles, in acr dlc on yusuf would have been cool as well.

For me the DLCs have just gotten better with every new release (except for LA).

Haven't played Freedom Cry but other than that, I'd say Da Vinci Disappearance. My least favourite AC also has my favouite AC DLC. Teh contradiction!

I liked Da Vinci over everything other DLC's offered.I don't know what was so intriguing about it.
