ASSASSIN’S CREED® III LIBERATION BRINGS THE FIGHT FOR FREEDOM TO 18TH CENTURY NEW ORLEANS

Game Introduces the First Full Assassin’s Creed Experience on a Handheld Device


LOS ANGELES – June 4, 2012 – Today at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed III Liberation will be released on October 30 exclusively for the Sony PlayStation® Vita, bringing the full Assassin’s Creed experience to a handheld device for the first time.

Assassin’s Creed III Liberation includes key pillars of the franchise that fans of the series know and love, including combat, free-roaming navigation and a rich story full of intrigue and twists, delivering a true Assassin’s Creed experience to the Sony PlayStation® Vita.
Gamers play as the series’ first female protagonist, Aveline. A woman of conviction, Aveline is fighting for freedom in 18th century New Orleans – a city on the brink of a rebellion as the Spanish Empire imposes its new rule.

Assassin’s Creed III Liberation also features Vita-specific controls, making the most of the system’s front and rear touch panels, cameras and gyroscope. These include distinctive combat, character interaction, deciphering and traversal controls – all delivering an immersive handheld Assassin’s Creed experience. Assassin’s Creed III Liberation will also bring a unique multiplayer experience to the series exclusively tailored for the Sony PlayStation® Vita.

“The release of Assassin’s Creed III Liberation will be the series' most ambitious handheld offering to date,” said Geoffroy Sardin, chief EMEA sales and marketing officer at Ubisoft/Tony Key, US senior vice-president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft. “Combining the console-like experience with Sony PlayStation® Vita exclusive features, Assassin’s Creed III Liberation will be a leading example of what gamers should expect from a handheld experience."

PlayStation fans who pick up both Assassin’s Creed III Liberation for the Sony PlayStation® Vita and Assassin’s Creed III for the Sony PlayStation® 3 this holiday will receive exclusive content, including an in-game version of Connor’s tomahawk, an exclusive character skin, a multiplayer character and a complete upgrade of all ammunition pouches.

Assassin’s Creed III Liberation will launch October 30th in stores and on the PlayStation® Network for Sony PS Vita. For more information on Assassin’s Creed III Liberation, please visit: www.assassinscreed.com/liberation

About the game


What's up?
  • Megido
    Megido So essentially, VR is limited to a certain type of experiences as well. Not everything works well in VR. That said, the stuff that does is amazingly fun :) (8 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido I set Dark Souls up to run on my Vive, got barfy af after like 10 minutes. Same with any game that doesn't use teleport movement. Tried trackpad move in one game, almost fell over from the confusion. (9 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Which apparently has "no games" according to people who supposedly love JRPGs ;) (15 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @alimokrane: Attach rates matter too. See PS Vita. (16 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And not just for some but some experiences. VR stuff that's developer for VR is obviously the best VR stuff. (16 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @KORNdog: VR improves for some. Remember that not all people can handle VR. (30 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but at the end of the day it's still just a sold separately peripheral. and you can't force any dev to support a peripheral. (1 Hour ago)
