Introducing Assassin’s Creed® Liberation HD, the striking chapter of the pre-American Revolution Assassin’s Creed saga which arrives for the first time on HD consoles and PC. With improved gameplay, deeper story and HD graphics makes Liberation an immersive and full Assassin’s Creed experience.
The year is 1765. As the events leading up to the American Revolution heat up in the north, Spanish forces plan to take control of Louisiana in the south – but they have yet to reckon with Aveline, a deadly Assassin who will use every weapon and ability in her arsenal on her quest for freedom. Whether eliminating her enemies with her multiple assassinations technique or luring them into deadly traps using her tools, Aveline strikes mortal fear into the hearts of those who stand in her way.
As an Assassin, Aveline 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. She will play a pivotal role in the turbulent New Orleans revolution and the beginning of a new nation. As she fights for freedom, not for herself, but for those whose life and hopes have been squashed.
AVELINE IS BACK
As Aveline, an Assassin of mixed French and African heritage, you must use your skill, instinct and weaponry – including a machete, poison-dart blowpipe, a whip and duelling pistols – to hunt down and eliminate your enemies.
EXPERIENCE THE UN-UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Feast your eyes on a richly detailed world, thanks to the AnvilNext engine which features groundbreaking physics, animation and innovative combat system. Outmaneuver your enemies in the Louisiana bayou with the unique Tree Navigation system, and eliminate them from above with deadly precision. Deep dive under water as you search for lost Mayan treasures, but stay alert; the hostile wilderness and humid swamps are full of menacing animals.
COMPLETELY IMPROVED EXPERIENCE
Taking full advantage of its new hardware, Liberation HD introduces graphical improvements such as high-dynamic-range (HDR) rendering, high definition environments and characters, updated cinematics the sum of which delivers a complete graphic overhaul of the title. The gameplay experience has been revamped too with updated missions that improve the pacing, new missions that dive deeper into Aveline’s story, and updated world design for more gameplay options during mission. Finally, a particular attention was given to the audio with re-mastered music and all-new SFX.
The buggiest Assassin's Creed existingsergebelanger22 | July 22, 2014 | See all sergebelanger22's reviews »
I had really high expectations for Liberation since it was recommended by several persons that I know. However, I was highly disappointed.
I really like the franchise and I really liked the American Revolution theme. Once again, the story is very important and is well developed. However, there are so many bugs and crashes in this game that I nearly stopped played. It really feels like a direct port from the Vita, without any bug fixing. I had crashes about every hour when running the game on high resolution and settings. I had to lower the resolution, remove V-Sync and then it "only" crashed twice. There are several bugs where you swim over the air, walk in the air or where enemies are stuck.
The economy is present again, however it has absolutely no use. You have nothing to do with your money other than buying some merchants stands and few weapons.
The history is a lot less present too in this game. There is no more reading on the various landmarks, cities, etc.. There is only a little background story for the characters, but that's all.
The story is a good length, but short compared to the other games of the series. It will take you about 6-8 hours or 15 if you plan on finding and buying everything.
No matter if you are a fan of the franchise or not, I would not recommend you to play this game unless your backlog is running very low.
