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.

I don't know what just happened. This game doesn't seem to have any coherent story, and what little sense managed to make it into the game is obfuscated by the fact that Ubisoft included two story lines: the Abstergo "lie" and the "true" history. I honestly have no idea what the plot of this game was supposed to be; this is plain dreadful storytelling. This title is a rather sad port. The controls are frustrating, graphics were clearly designed for a smaller platform, and there are frequent game-breaking glitches that force you to restart the game. Add to that the pointless economic system, side missions, and collectibles, and you have an all around worthless video game. I'm not even sure why I bothered to finish this game.
Aveline, the story's protagonist, is a woman this time around making for a very welcome difference in the norm so far for Assassin's creed games. The ability to blend in with nobles, slaves and the ever loving assassin is awesome. It adds a bit more depth into the usual fair and despite being a port of what was a PS Vita game, it was very well done. The game looks and plays awesome with no troubles on my end so I am more than happy to give it 5 stars.
Another day, another Assassin's Creed.. although this game is unlike the others... this time around the testosterone gets traded in for a little bit of estrogen. Released along side Assassins Creed 3, Liberation was meant to be a PS vita game, it was later ported to the Xbox 360, PS 3 and then later the PC. As a port of a vita game Liberation doesn't feel like a full fledged Assassin Creed title, it seems sort of bare bones, although with that said you can still fully expect all the same type of gameplay you've grown to love from previous AC games.. Story - Liberation is an attempt by Abstergo Industries (yes that Abstergo) to commercially release interactive experiences to the general public. Abstergo being all evil and sinister they censor the content to block out mentions of Templar's and Assassins, but fear not, thanks to hacktivist group you'll eventually discover the full story. Unlike other previous Assassin Creed titles, the game has no alternate storyline set in the current age, you stay in the game (Animus) the entire time. You will play the game as Aveline de Grandpr?. Aveline is the daughter of a wealthy French trader and an African slave mother. She'll set out on an adventure set in New Orleans in 1757's as a child, following your mother, after being distracted by and chasing a chicken (Chicken Chaser... oh wait that's Fable 1) Aveline finds herself lost and her mother missing, fast forward 13 years, a now grown Aveline lives with her father in his mansion. Her father has since married a woman who cares for Aveline and treats her like a daughter. It's from this starting point that Aveline starts on her grand adventure, to help free slaves, discover and stop the temper's grand schemes, potentially find love and discover a secret 13 years in the making. Gameplay - nothing much has changed from previous Assassin's Creed games except the size, being a port of a vita game Liberation is shorter, has fewer collectibles, and generally seems rather lacking of extra content. The game is comprised of 3 main areas, New Orleans city, The Bayou and Chich?n Itz?. The major addition to the game that wasn't seen in previous games is the Blowgun, which in my opinion is a total game changer. This allows you to use a a weapon which can quickly kill enemies from stealth. This weapon alone makes every mission easy mode. Hide in bushes, blow a few darts, loot more darts and move on.. Another addition is three alternate persona's, the slave, assassin and Lady. Each of these has their advantages and disadvantages. The Slave has a weapon restriction, no guns, no main weapon, only the hidden blades and blow gun, also notoriety is very fast to increase. The Lady has the same weapon restrictions as the Slave, as well having jumping disabled. notoriety increases the slowest of any persona. Lastly is the Assassin, which has no weapon or jumping restrictions, but has a 1 notoriety at all times. Recommended - Liberation was your typical Assassin's Creed fair, it really isn't necessary to play this game, nor is it part of the Abstergo storyline the other games followed. Aside from being software released by Abstergo this game is a total stand alone. In future AC games you get some mentions of Liberation but they are rather limited from what I've seen. While this game is good, it doesn't quite live up to the other games, it's still a pretty good game but just not quite up to the level of previous games. Going forward to Black Flag Liberation will seem really dull.. With that said I'd still suggest you play the game, after all who wants to play a serious and skip out on one of the chapters, even if that Chapter isn't the best game in the series.
Assassin's Creed Liberation HD was originally released for the PS Vita. Now that is on PC the game has fluid frames but during the 360 degree view of synchronization is somehow locked at 30fps but so far that is the only issue I encountered during the gameplay along with few texture pop-ups occasionally. AC Liberation HD is a good addition to the series but it isn't great and while you are playing through the story the world feels a bit empty as compared to other AC titles. The game has Static Menus, Week Background Music, Movements of the protagonist feels a bit stiff and a lot of physics has been simply stripped of while your running through the crowd. Although the story is good and the combat is well put and thanks to the proper key indications as well as controller support. I would recommend this game if you're a AC series fan so you wouldn't mind many of the things in it but if you're new to the series I would simply suggest you to play previous titles. Overall 7/10
Dear Ubisoft, thank you for an excellent PC-port of another one Assassin's Creed game! Now PC-games have an ability to play Connor's partner, beautiful woman and deadly assassin - Aveline de Grandpre. The game is looks like simplified version of AC III. In spite of this Liberation has it's own excellent storyline with plot twists, charismatic main hero, AC III gameplay with new features (changing clothes, canoeing and other) and brilliant soundtrack. For fans it will be a great return to the USA setting and an excellent experience of playing woman assassin, for other - it's another one cool Assassin's Creed game so that's why don't pass by!
