Yeah i just got the latest gameinformer and it has a preview of Assassins Creed 3:Liberation
For vita also stars a Female assassin!

•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 devolping
•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."
Is the female assassin also a Native American?
It says she's of mixed heritage french/black

I just got my Game Informer as well. The article is fairly long. Other tidbits though.

Seems Aveline and Connor will meet in Liberation
Use front and rear touch controls to pick pocket
Someone else is using the Animus
New weapons include a sugarcane machete, pistols, muskets, grenades

If gameplay remains intact, I'll bite.

Subtitles do not instill me with confidence.

What about the gameplay? Is it the same or is it some spin-off that is AC in aesthetics and name alone?

Also, thank goodness it's not subtitled 'Lady Liberty', or whatever that rumor was a few days ago.

I have no faith in portable AC games, maybe this could be different because of vita, but I'm still cautious after ac's portable history

I am intrigued. AC couldn't really hold my attention on the consoles but I could see it being a very fun time-killer as a portable.

Hopefully its better than the PSP game.
Ubisoft Sofia:
Mac port of Rayman Raving Rabbids
Tech work (not design work) on TC's Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars
Chessmaster DS
PS3 Port of Prince of Persia Classic
Xbox 360 port of CSI 3 Dimensions of Murder

I don't really have high hopes :p

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

Sounds good. Is ubisoft sofia a handheld team ? What have they put out so far ?
Female Assasin is great though.

Very interested in knowing how it is this one. Ubisoft Sofia did Shadow Wars on 3DS, so there's hope for something good. How does it look from the magazine?

EDIT: Ah, they did just tech work on Shadow Wars. Meh, hoping they'll do good this time. It won't be a good budgeted game probably, but I want to see it being a good game! :D

That's Ubi Bulgaria, the guys that made Shadow Wars, right? Could be interesting.

I would have taken Ass Creed 3 port over this. But I hope this is good, since there's a bigger chance of me picking this up than Ass Creed 3.

Cool. I'd like a true Assassins Creed for handhelds, and it's properly treated and respectful adaptations that'll help sell me on a Vita...

Hopefully one day we'll get a mainline game with a female main character, but this is awesome. Ubisoft Sofia's track record isn't great but they did do Shadow Wars, which was rad.

There was another PSP game with "Liberation" in its title. It did not end well.

Hopefully it turns out to be a nice complement to the Vita's library.

Considering Ubisoft's track record on poratble games, and considering it's a spin off and not a port. I estimate the probability of this game to be an horrible piece of turd to 95%.

Ouch, sounds like this game is an afterthought if they're leading development.

Color me interested. I would be fine if this and Tomb Raider reboot lead to more female main-protagonists in video-games

Anyways, excited to see this at Sony's (or Ubi-Soft's) Press Conference.

Where AC goes, I usually follow, so guess I gotta get a Vita.

Happy to hear it's a new assassin, and female at that. Should be interesting!

If you are talking about Killzone Liberation, it is an awesome game that was well supported with DLC.

Are there screens in the mag?

Please let me use the vita as a controller with maps, weapon selection and other shit on the screen.
