It is only a matter of days until we receive the new and updated HD version of Ubisoft’s 2012 handheld historical action game, the so far PS Vita exclusive Assassin’s Creed: Liberation. The game took players back to the 18th century in the role of female assassin Aveline de Grandpré as she fought the Templar domination on the streets of a Spanish-occupied New Orleans. The original title brought the well-known franchise to the small screen, making use of the Vita’s various features, including its touch screen – while the latter will no doubt not make a return in the home console/PC release, its various improvements – both visually and gameplay-wise – will, we hope, be worth the wait for AC fans.

In terms of the HD version, Ubisoft talks not of a mere port, but a more delicate remake: the new game, as its HD title implies, boasts of improved graphics, a higher resolution, as well as re-worked missions with altered content, pacing and difficulty; furthermore, 15 new missions are also added existing repertoire. With little luck, the HD improvements will also include a thorough purging of any bugs, as well as a much-needed fix for framerate and load time issues.

Assassin’s Creed: Liberation HD is expected to release on January 14 (US) and 15 (Europe) at a somewhat reduced, 20 dollar starting price. The game will only be available as a digital download, both on consoles (Playstation Network, Xbox Live) and PC (Steam).
