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

Pretty impressive for a handheld game, wonder how long it's been in development?

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @Tinks: they started screwing over some of their long time 2nd party partners like Argonaut and (to a degree) Rare. (3 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks during the 64 era Nintendo at least had Rare in their prime, but it was the start of real painful gaps in content. (7 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks if you skipped the 64, Gamecube and Wii you may not feel their software issues the same as others. From what they've shown so far they've done little to correct their previous console issues. (7 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I don't think Nintendo can or will fit the mold he expects them to though. They never have, really. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Jim always presents a solid argument. I think Nintendo has more wiggle room with this thing than people think if the market responds poorly to it. A portable SKU for example. (8 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @droezelke: The complaints he has in that video are mostly valid I'd say, sadly. (8 Hours ago)
