Assassin's Creed Liberation HD Arrives January 14
The PlayStation Blog
announced that Assassin's Creed Liberation HD
will be available on January 14, 2014 on the PlayStation Store for the PlayStation 3. Presumably, this is also the release date of the Xbox 360 and PC versions, but there is no confirmation on that just yet.
Liberation is set in New Orleans between 1765 and 1780, in the period between the end of the French and Indian War, up to the middle of the American Revolution. Liberation tells the story of Aveline; a female Assassin of mixed French and African heritage. Brought up in a world of privilege and contrasts, Aveline becomes a strong-willed woman and an avid opponent of slavery.
Recruited to the Assassins by an escaped slave, Aveline joins the struggle against the Templars as they try to take control of New Orleans following France’s handover of the city to Spain. Striking hard and fast, she is instrumental in the Louisiana Rebellion that forces the Spanish and Templars out of the city for nearly two years before they return in force.
The HD version will include 15 new missions and some re-worked game mechanics based off of user feedback of the original Vita version of the game.
