The lights are on
At its Digital Days event in Paris, Ubisoft confirmed the rumored HD upgrade to the Vita entry in the Assassin's Creed saga, Liberation. The title takes place in Louisiana and follows the story of Aveline de Grandpré as she investigates Templar activity while hiding her identity as an Assassin.
In addition to upgraded visuals, the title will boast re-mastered music, an improved gameplay experience, and new missions that further explore Aveline's history. Liberation will be coming in early 2014 to Xbox 360, PlayStation Network, and PC as a digital exclusive.
Our TakeThe thing that caught my eye in this announcement is the promise of revamped gameplay. The Assassin's Creed: Liberation story was a good one, but there was a lot wrong with the gameplay. From weird checkpoint issues to significant glitches, the title didn't life up to its promise on the Vita. Here's hoping that a second chance is what this game needs to make Aveline's adventure all it can be.

I will probably pass on this.
They did an ok job with this title, but it really didnt have the polish I expected. WAY to many glitches that hindered my experience. I played it, beat it, and sold it back in return for a Killzone: Mercenaries preorder.
If they would have patched it in the first few months I owned it the experience would have been a lot better.
Yayyy. Always wanted to play this but couldn't afford a Vita.
Pretty excited about this. New Orleans is one of my favorite cities so the chance to explore it during such an interesting period is a welcome opportunity. It will be like Interview with the Vampire but, you know, with assassins.
I'll check this out.. My fear of burning out this franchise grows more every year. I'm interested the most in seeing where they take the AC story in Black Flag.
I've actually yet to play this on the Vita.
Should be alright I guess.
i knew i shouldn't have bought a vita for this...damn...well, new missions, enhanced gameplay, might play it again...
Fine by me.
Cool! As I don't have a PS Vita, I've never been able to play this game, so this is great news.
YEEEEEEEEES! I have wanted to see a console port to do Aveline justice!
I'm glad this is coming out on other platforms, I don't own a Vita and this is the only Vita exclusive that I ever felt I missed out on.
