‘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.
