So, you’ve already played through the excellent Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and are eagerly awaiting whatever Ubisoft has in store for the franchise next. You could wait until next November for whatever Assassin’s Creed V turns out to be, or you could play the one game in the franchise that went unnoticed thanks to the platform it was on.
Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD, a remastered port of the previously PlayStation Vita exclusive title, is now available on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. The game takes place during the events of Assassin’s Creed III, but follows the exploits of Aveline – an African-French assassin living in 18th century New Orleans at the end of the French and Indian War.
Unlike Assassin’s Creed III, Liberation is not all about free running and sword fighting. The game mixes up the gameplay with three distinct gameplay varieties that take advantage of Aveline’s gender and race as she can either seduce guards as a noble woman or blend in with her surroundings as a slave. When neither option is viable, she can also don the traditional assassin’s armor and take out her enemies with a variety of weapons.
