Assassin's Creed Liberation HD Lands On PS3, PSN In January
If you missed it when it came out for the PlayStation Vita (or you don't happen to own a Vita), you can still play Assassin's Creed III: Liberation.
Ubisoft has announced that a high-definition version of the former handheld title will make its way to the PS3 and PSN on January 14, 2014. It will retail for an agreeable $19.99.
Back in late 2012, Liberation released to decent critical acclaim alongside Assassin's Creed III for consoles. The new HD iteration features 15 new missions based on Aveline's three personas: Assassin, Lady and Servant. The game is set in New Orleans between the years 1765 and 1780, a period that spanned the end of the French and Indian War. Aveline is a female assassin who finds herself mixed up in a variety of political issues, and eventually must take on the all-mighty, all-seeing Templars.
I said in my review that it was a good game on the Vita, but it just felt a little empty and bland when compared with the bigger console adventures. Still, for only $20, it's definitely a journey worth taking.
