Assassinís Creed Liberation HD Coming January 14th!


Greetings, PlayStation Assassins! Weíre very excited to announce that Assassinís Creed Liberation HD (http://blog.us.playstation.com/2013/09/10/assassins-creed-liberation-hd-coming-to-psn/) will be coming to PS3 (http://blog.us.playstation.com/category/ps3/) via PlayStation Store on January 14th.

When we set out to do Liberation HD, our objective was simple: improve upon what worked on the Vita and adapt the gameplay and missions to be the most fun and enjoyable they could be. As a result, each mission has been reworked in order to improve its pacing, and the challenge it poses to the player.

Liberation is set in New Orleans between 1765 and 1780, in the period between the end of the French and Indian War, up to the middle of the American Revolution. Liberation tells the story of Aveline; a female Assassin of mixed French and African heritage. Brought up in a world of privilege and contrasts, Aveline becomes a strong-willed woman and an avid opponent of slavery.

Recruited to the Assassins by an escaped slave, Aveline joins the struggle against the Templars as they try to take control of New Orleans following Franceís handover of the city to Spain. Striking hard and fast, she is instrumental in the Louisiana Rebellion that forces the Spanish and Templars out of the city for nearly two years before they return in force.

In addition to the HD upgrade, we also have new missions specific to Avelineís Personas. Aveline is the first Assassin with such clearly different character types ó Assassin, Lady, and Servant. Each persona has its own advantages and disadvantages when playing missions, and each generates a different reaction from the city life around Aveline. Thatís a total of 15 missions delving deeper into Avelineís story.

If you havenít had a chance to play this chapter of Assassinís Creed on Vita, or simply want to play Liberation on the big screen, we hope youíll check out Assassinís Creed Liberation HD on January 14th for $19.99.

I would watch www.assassinscreed.com for future official updates regarding other formats. :)

Also the OP may want to alter the date in the title....

It seems as if you are unaware..There will be a HD version of Liberation for all consoles and a PC version. :)

I'm looking forward to this, I also want to know the release date for the PC & 360.

the mission with Connor in it will definitely be in the game... it's an important plot point (I mean what happens there, not Connor being there)... it would make 0 sense if they removed it.

Very nice! At least now I'll have a "new" AC to play before I can get my hands on Black Flag! :cool:

Oops. Didn't see that. Getting used to type 2013 a lot so my hands weren't thinking twice. :P

Can you change the title? I edited but it isn't fixed.

Also edited to add the PC release date. :)

How was Liberation's mission structure compared to AC3's? Because if it's just as linear, I'm not sure I'm interested.

It was on a handheld console.... that should answer your question

Clarify mission structure, do you mean the way missions are designed, or the way they are, well, structured as a whole? (there's not a lot of side-activities in AC:L, that's why they're adding more in the HD version)

EDIT: Also, at any rate, as far as I understand, they're also touching up the mission design as well, so even if you mean the level design that might not be necessarily representative of AC:L HD

For $20 it's a done deal for me. I never got to play Liberation on Vita since I don't have one so this will be a new experience for me!!

Eh. Well, I'm skipping it then. Extreme hand-holding = no buy.

the AC4 Bonus Hour Content with Aveline is only PS-exclusive for a window, also

We might not be able to play as Connor though... Not that it really matters, it was pretty much a re-skin of Aveline in game.

Nope, it's definitely Sony and PC exclusive..

As I said, though, reworking of the missions is part of the HD re-release, so it's best to wait until the game is out and then see how it fairs in that regard.

Its 6months exclusive for PS4 since XBOX 360 and XBOX One getting it after that period.

Can't judge though, since I haven't played the game yet.

Times like this are when I wish I had a full blown gaming computer or laptop. Unfortunately, I can't run much on this small work laptop (let alone a game).

Seems like my options are to either use my money for a PC or PS4... or act like an Assassin and steal them both!

It says it's exclusive for 6 months on the PS4. What if it's just released for the PS3 after 6 months?

Please release a boxed edition! I would pay 10Ä more for that! I even bought Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon in a box. I mean, come on! It's Assassin's Creed! There are definitely enough people out there who will buy the boxed game. :(

Umm... not exactly a buy right off the bat for me... BUT I will most likely be picking this up either way it goes! $20 isn't bad at all! Actually better than I thought it would be! :)

I'm happy to play as a french/african american female assassin!

la bonne vie!
