The year is 1765. While the seeds of the American Revolution are being sewn in Boston and New York, Spanish forces in the South plot to seize control of Louisiana for the Templars, threatening to forever shift the balance of power in the New World.
As Templars secretly take hold of the slave trade in New Orleans, Aveline de Grandpré, an assassin of mixed French and African heritage, stands ready to defend her people. She soon finds herself on an unforgettable journey that will take her from the crowded streets of New Orleans to voodoo-haunted swamps and ancient Mayan ruins.
Whether eliminating her enemies with new assassination skills or luring them into cunning traps, Aveline strikes mortal fear into the hearts of those who would stand against freedom.
Arriving for the first time as a digital title on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, Assassin’s Creed® Liberation HD is the striking chapter of the pre-American Revolution Assassin’s Creed saga, featuring unique assassin gameplay mechanics, and an immersive Assassin’s Creed storyline delivered in stunning high-definition.
A CUNNING NEW ASSASSIN – As Aveline, the first playable female Assassin in the Assassin’s Creed saga, you must use your skill, instinct, and weaponry – including a machete, poison-dart blowpipe, a whip, and duelling pistols – to hunt down and eliminate your enemies. Change from disguise to disguise, assaulting your opponents directly as an Assassin, charming foes into vicious traps as a lady, or impersonating a slave to incite a riot to elude your pursuers.
DISCOVER THE FULL ASSASSIN’S CREED STORY – With a unique storyline that sheds light on the nefarious dealings of Abstergo Industries, Liberation HD also introduces Aveline, a new character in the Assassin’s Creed universe at the very heart of the escalating Assassin and Templar conflict in the New World.
SURVIVE THE NEW WORLD – Feast your eyes on a richly detailed world, thanks to the AnvilNext engine, which features groundbreaking physics, animation, and an innovative combat system. Outmaneuver your enemies in the Louisiana bayou with the unique Tree Navigation system, and eliminate them from above with deadly precision. Deep-dive underwater as you search for lost Mayan treasures, but stay alert, for Aveline is not the only predator who stalks the hostile wilderness.
THE DEFINITIVE LIBERATION EXPERIENCE – Taking full advantage of its new hardware, Liberation HD introduces a complete graphical overhaul, re-mastered music and sound effects, a revamped gameplay experience, and new missions that dive deeper into Aveline’s story.
