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
