Assassin’s Creed Liberation Heads to Consoles and Assassin’s Creed Pirates Debuts on Handhelds
In a move that should surprise no one Ubisoft has announced that the PS Vita Assassin's Creed Liberation title will be heading to consoles as Assassin's Creed Liberation HD. Gamers that missed out on this awesome game will get to play it not only for the PS3 and Xbox 360 but also on the PC so no gamer is left out.
Mobile phone and tablet gamers will get their piece of Assassin's Creed with Assassin's Creed Pirates. This standalone game will tie into Assassin's Creed Black Flag much like Libertation tied into Assassin's Creed 3. Be on the lookout for these titles during the fall. I will definitely be reviewing Assassin's Creed Liberation when it hits stores.
ASSASSIN’S CREED® FRANCHISE EXPANDS WITH TWO NEW TITLES
Assassin’s Creed® Liberation HD for consoles and PC, Assassin’s Creed®Pirates for smartphones and tablets
PARIS — September 10, 2013 — Today at its Digital Days event, Ubisoft® announced two new titles as part of the Assassin’s Creed®franchise. Assassin’s Creed® Liberation HD, an adaptation of the highly acclaimed PlayStation® Vita success for consoles and PC, and Assassin’s Creed® Pirates, mobile game dedicated to the naval combats introduced by Assassin’s Creed® III.
Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD features unique assassin gameplay mechanics, an immersive Assassin’s Creed storyline, and richly detailed high-definition graphics. Developed by Ubisoft Sofia, Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD is the striking chapter of the pre-American Revolution Assassin’s Creed saga, arriving for the first time as a digital title on Xbox® 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and PC.
Taking full advantage of its new hardware, Liberation HD introduces a complete graphical overhaul, re-mastered music and sound effects, a revamped gameplay experience, and new missions that dive deeper into Aveline’s story.
The year is 1765. While the seeds of the American Revolution are being sewn in Boston and New York, Spanish forces in the South plot to seize control of Louisiana for the Templars, threatening to forever shift the balance of power in the New World. As Templars secretly take hold of the slave trade in New Orleans, Aveline de Grandpré, an assassin of mixed French and African heritage, stands ready to defend her people. She soon finds herself on an unforgettable journey that will take her from the crowded streets of New Orleans to voodoo-haunted swamps and ancient Mayan ruins. Whether eliminating her enemies with new assassination skills or luring them into cunning traps, Aveline strikes mortal fear into the hearts of those who would stand against freedom.
Assassin’s Creed Pirates is a standalone game for smartphones and tablets that will allow players to further explore the Caribbean during the Golden Age of piracy as Alonzo Batilla, a young and ambitious captain. Players will have to manage their crew, upgrade their ship, recruit new crew member and engage in huge real-time naval battles to become the most feared pirate of their time and claim La Buse’s legendary treasure. As in Assassin’s Creed IV®: Black Flag™, the Caribbean seas will become their hunting grounds.
Ubisoft Paris is developing a brand new mobile engine to bring groundbreaking 3D visuals to smartphones and tablets. As players sail those breathtaking moving waters and discover those lush islands, they should keep a watchful eye for the day’s cycle and the changing weather conditions that will directly impact gameplay.
