Ubisoft has revealed the title and gameplay details for the PS Vita's first Assassins Creed game, details include images of the Female protagonist more details and images inside..........
Assassins Creed 3 will be released for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on October 30th however Assassins Creed 3: Liberation for the PS Vita will also be joining in on the fun by releasing on the exact same day as consoles.
First details on Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation have been shared today from the latest issue of Game Informer. Developed by Ubisoft Sofia, Liberation’s storyline won’t connect to Desmond; instead it will offer a different look at the Assassin/Templar conflict. The events of Liberation are described as a propaganda tool by Abstergo which will have players experience a grey area of the conflict from the view of an assassin rather than a Templar.
Despite this change, the magazine clearly states Liberation has “true Assassin’s Creed gameplay” as the game takes place in open areas where you can run, climb, fight and explore the entire city of New Orleans without loading a new area.
Set in New Orleans, Louisiana towards the conclusion of the French and Indian War between the years 1765-1780, Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation follows a female assassin named Aveline, whom has a mixed heritage of French and Black. Aveline’s mentor is named Agate, whom is the leader of the assassins within New Orleans, but is also an escaped slave.
Wildlife like alligators will act as an environmental threat as they wait on the banks of the swamps and hide beneath the gloomy waters. Liberation will take players across the Gulf and into Mexico.
The magazine also revealed that Assassins Creed 3: Liberation will also feature full fledged multiplayer specific to the PS Vita. Personally to me the game sounds phenemenal, instead of a cheap port it currently seems like it will be a triple A title. The only issue is, the fact that it will be released on the same day as Assassins Creed 3 on consoles, why they did this truly boggles my mind.
