AssassinsCreed3Liberation

An Assassin’s Creed III spinoff is coming exclusively to PlayStation Vita on October 30th, day and date with the main PC and home console game. Subtitled Liberation, the Vita game is a true open-world Assassin’s Creed experience starring a brand new female assassin, Aveline.

Liberation takes place in 18th-century New Orleans during the Spanish Empire’s conquest of Louisiana. Aveline, of French and African heritage, will lead the fight for freedom using new weapons, such as a duel pistols, a machete, and a blowgun with poison darts.

Vita-specific features, including the touchscreen, rear touch pad, gyroscope and cameras, will be put to use for certain combat actions, character interaction and traversal, and there will even be a unique form of multiplayer.

Sony and Ubisoft are so excited for this game, they’re pairing it with the Vita for a special hardware bundle and also connecting it with the PS3 so gamers who buy Assassin’s Creed III with Liberation will unlock additional in-game bonus content.
