Assassin’s Creed III Liberation is a risky move for Ubisoft. Not only is the PlayStation Vita floundering, but the portable entry will be released on the exact same day as another, multi-platform entry in the series. What Liberation does have going for it is a brand new character, Aveline.
Not only is she the first female assassin we’ll get to control, but there seems to be an added emphasis on disguises. Unlike Altaïr and Ezio, Aveline separates her role in the brotherhood from her everyday life, keeping her true identity secret from those around her. You can find out more about what set her on the path of the assassin in a new story trailer.
Assassin’s Creed Liberation will arrive on October 30, 2012.
