Remember that rumor about Assassin’s Creed III coming to Vita? In a sense, that rumor was correct, but in name only. A brand new game in the Assassin’s Creed series has been announced for Vita, as well as a new title in the Call of Duty series.Please enter the url to a YouTube video.
Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation is a title that has been built from the ground up to take advantage of the Vita’s hardware. Taking after its console counterpart, Liberation is set during the American Revolution. Unlike Assassin’s Creed III, however, the game stars a female French Assassin named Aveline in New Orleans. Gameplay-wise, the game is an open world adventure game like its predecessors, with access to weapons such as pistols, grenades, and a machete. Like other Assassin’s Creed games, Liberation has a modern-day storyline as well, though the player does not assume the role of Desmond Miles in these segments. Playing Liberation will unlock extra items in Assassin’s Creed III, including ammo pouches, a tomahawk, and a multiplayer skin.
Another Vita title announced at Sony’s conference is Call of Duty: Black Ops – Declassified. While no details of its plot were released, the game is a first-person shooter, and is presumably set in the near future. The game will include a multiplayer mode.
Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation is in development by Ubisoft Sofia, and will be released on October 30 alongside Assassin’s Creed III. The developer of Call of Duty: Black Ops – Declassified has yet to be announced, though the game is set to be released later this year.
