Our Take
I'm curious to learn if the DLC sells better without the need for an Assassin's Creed IV disc. Ubisoft did very well with its standalone Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon DLC, but that was radically different from the main Far Cry 3 game. Adéwalé's journey offers a new assassin, but otherwise appears similar to the main game. In any case, it's nice to have the option to play the DLC without having to invest in the full game.
