Recently, we got some leaked information that Ubisoft was readying up a portable versaion of Assassin’s Creed III for Sony’s new(ish) handheld, the PlayStation Vita. I’d hoped, when I’d heard the news, that the miniaturised game wouldn’t be a direct port.

My hopes, it seems, shall not be dashed; Assassin’s Creed III for the Vita, subtitled Liberation will not only be a standalone game – it’ll feature a female assassin.

Here are the details, according to neoGAF:

  • Its out same day as AC3 (oct30)
  • Location is New Orleans
  • Female assassin named Aveline
  • Looks like same time period as AC3
  • Ubisoft Sofia is developing
  • Takes place during 1765-1780 in the period between the end of the French and Indian war
  • One of the bullet points is that it’s “true AC gameplay”
  • Will not connect to Desmond
  • Will have “multiplayer specifically tailored to the Vita experience”
  • “The game has been released as a propaganda tool by Abstergo, who want players to experience a gray area of the Assassin/Templar conflict as an assassin rather than a templar”
  • Aveline’s mentor is an escaped slave named Agate,leader of the assassins in New Orleans
  • Wildlife like alligators “wait on the banks of the swamp or hide beneath murky waters”
  • Liberation will also take players across the Gulf into Mexico”
  • Game will take place in “Large gameplay areas, you can run, climb, fight and explore the entirety of New Orleans without loading a new area.”

I’m intrigued. Seems like it could be interesting; the only thing that has me a little worried is the developer. Liberations will be developed by Ubisoft Sofia – whose most notable work includes CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: 3 Dimensions of Murder and Chessmaster.

Expect more to be shown at Ubisoft’s E3 conference, which kicks off at Midnight local time.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
