A new video interview with the developers of Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation has been posted on the official Playstation Blog. Developers describe most of the game’s features while showing some never seen before footage. Beware of spoilers!
Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation is the upcoming PSVita entry of the Assassin’s Creed franchise. Developed by Ubisoft Sofia, the game is supposedly a side-story to go alongside Assassin’s Creed III, offering a link up mode with the PS3 game offering characters skins, exclusive weapons and upgrades unobtainable in the main game.
Set in New Orleans between the end of the French and Indian War during the 18th century, AC III: Liberation will star Aveline de Grandprè, a female french-african assassin recruited by the former slave Agate into the Brotherhood. Players will be able to visit locations across the Gulf Of Mexico and Mexico itself. Unlike mainline entries, Aveline’s story is not witnessed by series’ main character Desmond Miles: in a true sidestory fashion, Aveline’s life is used to shed some light on a gray area of the Assassin’s conflict with the Templars through the eyes of an Assassin.
The game should offer slightly different gameplay experience than the main game thanks to PSVita touchscreen, rear touch pad, cameras which will be used for extra features like Chain Kill combat and the pickpocket abilities.
Aveline will also have some peculiar abilities like dual wielding which will contribute in making her different from Assassin’s Creed III main character Connor Kenway whom she’ll also meet during the game.
Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation will launch on PSVita on the same day as Assassin’s Creed III console versions: October 30.
