Explaining Assassin’s Creed 3 Liberation gameplay

With Ubisoft recently unveiling Assassin’s Creed 3 Liberation on the PS Vita gamers got the opportunity to check out the new female assassin Aveline as she takes on the Spanish forces in 1768 New Orleans. In the trailer, plenty of action was shown but not many details have been divulged about the story so we thought we would take a look at what is involved.

Ubisoft Producer Martin Capel explains that the background of the game is set in New Orleans between 1765 and 1780 and the assassin Aveline originates from an African mother and a wealthy father who is a French merchant. Her privileged lifestyle gives her an insight into the wealth, poverty, freedom and slavery involved in the contrasting lifestyles and her anti-slavery stance gives Agate, an escaped slave a reason to introduce her to the Assassin movement.

In an article on Poptimal the background of Aveline is documented and her struggle against the Templars as they try to take control of New Orleans following France’s handover of the city to Spain. The gameplay in Liberation has much to explore with a strong narrative and characters along with great cities. Assassin’s Creed 3 Liberation is an open world game that has everything from complete free-running abilities and a multitude of weapons like the silent and deadly blowpipe to the kind of stealth that makes this a popular franchise.

Short missions are available for on the go gaming and overall it is suggested that the length of the game will last around 15 hours for experienced gamers. Capel also confirmed that Aveline will be able to wield two weapons at the same time in this game and her social status will also affect the gameplay, although he didn’t go into much detail about this, along with news that Avaline will be crossing the Gulf to Mexico.

The new female lead in Assassin’s Creed 3 is also mentioned on IGN and they highlight a connection between Liberation features and the ‘mark and execute’ mode first introduced in Splinter Cell Conviction. The publisher feels that this is of the same quality as AC3, being built on the same engine with the similar type of animation and gameplay innovations. More Vita-related improvements should be expected as they have fully utilized the touch screen, along with plans to make the most of the back pad.

To keep inline with Assassin’s Creed news, last month we looked at the ambitious gameplay trailer for AC3 on the console and suggested certain actors for a movie version. Today we are asking whether Assassin’s Creed 3 Liberation will be the ideal platform for the PS Vita considering the advantage of the control system, and will you be acquiring this as soon as it is available?
