‘Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation’
Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed 3 will see release on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC later this year; however another installment of Assassin’s Creed will be joining it. Today it was revealed that Sony’s PlayStation Vita will be getting its own entry to the Assassin’s Creed series with a spinoff title known as Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation which is set to release along Assassin’s Creed 3 on October 30th.
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, who has a mixed heritage of French and Black. Aveline’s mentor is named Agate, the leader of the assassins within New Orleans, but is also an escaped slave. It is also said that Assassin’s Creed 3’s main character, Conner, will meet with Aveline during the game.
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. New weapons will include a sugarcane machete, pistols, muskets, and grenades.
The magazine also shares that Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation will have a multiplayer created for Vita. A Vita exclusive will allow you to pick pocket using Vita’s touch mechanics. No additional details have been revealed at this time but expect to hear more at E3 2012 next week.
Far too many Barbie doll, catsuit Mara Jade pictures going around in the last day or so. So here she is, in all her practical, well dressed glory. With her dancer’s figure, red-gold hair, and all her bad-ass gadgets.

[ Description: A portrait image of Modesty Blaise, a pale skinned woman with long dark hair worn up in a messy bun. She wears a longsleeved white shirt that exposes her cleavage, and holds what appears to be a WWII era German handgun in her right hand obscuring her face. ]
[ Image: A colour photograph of a pale skinned woman with short brown hair, in the uniform of the Continental Army (the armed forces formed by the colonies that became the USA). The uniform consists of white pants and a matching high collared tunic fastened with a long line of metallic buttons, held in place with a dark leather belt that matches her throat protector. Over this she wears a dark navy blue jacket with broad deep red cuffs, collar and trim all decorated with more of the same metallic buttons. The uniform is completed by a dark navy blue tricorn hat trimmed with pale yellow ribbon. Bone coloured cloth webbing forms an X over her chest. A long barrel musket is held butt-down in her left hand. ]
Deborah Samson Gannett (December 17, 1760 - April 29, 1827), better known as Deborah Sampson, was an American woman who impersonated a man in order to serve in the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War. She is one of a small number of women with a documented record of military combat experience in that war. She served 17 months in the army, as “Robert Shurtlieff”, of Uxbridge, Massachusetts, was wounded in 1782 and honorably discharged at West Point in 1783.
[ A coloured sketch of a light skinned woman with short brown hair and hazel eyes done in a style reminiscent of that of Bruce Timm, showing her from the thighs up. She wears a white open-necked babydoll style shirt with a sort of wing collar, underneath a short black vest with pockets on the front. Her low slung black pants, which expose the lower curve of her belly, have red ribbing — the Corellian Bloodstripe — running down the outer seam. On her hands are a pair of grey fingerless gloves; her right hand is hooked over her belt, from which an empty holster hangs against her hip, while her raised left hand holds a smoking blaster pistol pointed skywards as she regards the viewer with a brazen expression. ]
