Assassin’s Creed: Liberation HD, a big-screen update of the late-2012 PlayStation Vita title, is headed to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, Ubisoft confirms. The new and improved take on assassin Aveline de Grandpré’s adventure through 18th century New Orleans sports a number of improvements, including beefed up graphics, more detailed tutorials, dual-wielded weapons, and a better overall user experience.
This HD re-release of Liberation also sports a handful of new missions. There are three sets of five missions, 15 in all, with each set focusing on one of Aveline’s Personas. The Vita take on Assassin’s Creed introduced this idea of Personas, which are basically costumes that can be worn to influence how the world of New Orleans responds to you. Your Assassin Persona, for example, is always hunted and needs to stay out of sight, while the Slave and the Lady Personas offer different sets of freedoms and restrictions.
Also new is a set of story panels that will pop up between missions to help players focus on particular aspects of the plot. This added emphasis on highlighting the story will also serve to showcase the improvements Liberation HD‘s dev team brought to how individual character performances are animated.
That’s about the extent of it. Ubisoft has yet to confirm a price or release date for this one, so stay tuned for more soon.
