Today Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed: Liberation, the previously exclusive Vita game, will be coming to the PC, 360 and PS3 in early 2014. Additionally they also revealed Assassin’s Creed: Pirates, a mobile and tablet game coming this fall.
Assassin’s Creed: Liberation HD is an updated version of the Vita game and is said to include “bonus missions, enhanced gameplay mechanics, improved visuals, re-worked facial animations and a re-mastered soundtrack”.
AC: Pirates is coming out on iOS and Android and is reportedly set in the same universe as the upcoming Assassin’s Creed IV but they are not linked in any way. According to the Polygon report: “Players will take on the role of Alonzo Batilla, playing through the memories of the young and ambitious pirate on a quest to find the mysterious treasures of La Buse. Along the way, players will confront Templars and Assassins and take part in real-time naval battles. They will also encounter colorful and notorious characters of the era like Blackbeard, Bellamy and Hornigold.”
Check out the trailer for Pirates below and the HD reveal trailer for Liberation at the top:
Personally I think that it is a great idea to bring Liberation to PC and consoles. Although the game has its problems many people think that Aveline de Grandpré is one of the best characters in the Assassin’s Creed universe. It is nice to see that more people will get to experience the story, plus the extra content which adds even more value to this package. Assassin’s Creed: Pirates looks like it could be great, many people loved the naval battles in AC3 so a mobile game focusing on this has great potential.
Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD releases on PC, PS3 and 360 in early 2014 and Assassin’s Creed Pirates releases on iOS and Android this fall.
