Assassin's Creed Liberation HD and Pirates Announced

Assassin's Creed Pirates

Today at its Digital Days event, Ubisoft announced two new titles as part of the Assassin's Creed franchise. Assassin's Creed Liberation HD, an adaptation of the highly acclaimed PlayStation Vita success for consoles and PC, and Assassin's Creed Pirates, mobile game dedicated to the naval combats introduced by Assassin's Creed III.

Assassin's Creed Liberation HD features unique assassin gameplay mechanics, an immersive Assassin's Creed storyline, and richly detailed high-definition graphics. Developed by Ubisoft Sofia, Assassin's Creed Liberation HD is the striking chapter of the pre-American Revolution Assassin's Creed saga, arriving for the first time as a digital title on Xbox, PlayStation 3, and PC.

Taking full advantage of its new hardware, Liberation HD introduces a complete graphical overhaul, re-mastered music and sound effects, a revamped gameplay experience, and new missions that dive deeper into Aveline's story.

Assassin's Creed Liberation HD

The year is 1765. While the seeds of the American Revolution are being sewn in Boston and New York, Spanish forces in the South plot to seize control of Louisiana for the Templars, threatening to forever shift the balance of power in the New World. As Templars secretly take hold of the slave trade in New Orleans, Aveline de Grandpré, an assassin of mixed French and African heritage, stands ready to defend her people. She soon finds herself on an unforgettable journey that will take her from the crowded streets of New Orleans to voodoo-haunted swamps and ancient Mayan ruins. Whether eliminating her enemies with new assassination skills or luring them into cunning traps, Aveline strikes mortal fear into the hearts of those who would stand against freedom.

Assassin's Creed Pirates

Assassin's Creed Pirates is a standalone game for smartphones and tablets that will allow players to further explore the Caribbean during the Golden Age of piracy as Alonzo Batilla, a young and ambitious captain. Players will have to manage their crew, upgrade their ship, recruit new crew member and engage in huge real-time naval battles to become the most feared pirate of their time and claim La Buse's legendary treasure. As in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, the Caribbean seas will become their hunting grounds.

Ubisoft Paris is developing a brand new mobile engine to bring groundbreaking 3D visuals to smartphones and tablets. As players sail those breathtaking moving waters and discover those lush islands, they should keep a watchful eye for the day's cycle and the changing weather conditions that will directly impact gameplay.
