TheParanoidGamer - Here are the first images of Assassin Creed 3; Liberation, which is releasing for the PS Vita later this year.
Damn that looks good!
Well looks like Im picking this up on vita as well as AC3 on my PS3. Love Assassin's creed. I was kinda hoping for something after the end of AC embers, but this is great too
Agreed. Preorder confirmed. I wonder if we'll some type of cross platform unlocks or play as with Bloodlines. EDIT: There wasn't a lot in the form of unlocks but you are missing the point. I want the methodology, not the same amount. preferably we would get some type of co-op but I don't see Ubi going that far. Ideally we would get 5 -8 missions where the protagonist from the Vita can connect and show up to assist. I would much rather have that than some non-canon immersion breaking references to another game that isn't related to Assassins' Creed. I love the MG series, but when I am playing AC that's what I want to play. If they want to pull references let it be to other AC titles when historically appropriate.
You know what I would love? Some crazy MGS reference or gear in the game Remember these? http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... Hope its not limited to Bloodlines and Ac2 connection... you really did not get much out of it
I'll be doing the same. Depending on how E3 goes I might pick up a vita. If that happens I'll be getting both ACs.
Gentlemen set your fingers' multi-touch from Stun ... to KILL.
I'd love to find Geralt dead in a Whore house or something. You know the way you find Altair spread out over a broken hay cart in the Witcher 2....Yeah it would be a nice bitta payback Here it is. http://pinoytutorial.com/te...
Lol at the disagrees, poor delusional people. If it actually looks this good and runs at a decent framerate it's going to be a must buy for Vita owners.
Yup, now i need a Vita (Was gonna get one, Uncharted FTW) But NOW, i have more incentive.
I agree. It can not be a ginger. It doesn't even have a red head.
*INB4 "not unique enough, doesn't matter"* Jokes aside, looking forward to AC3 and whether it will be as good as the shift from AC1 to AC2 or not.
Looks amazing. Also, kind of weird seeing an Assassin without a hood.
Or an assassin with woman parts. Apparently she's mixed(French/Black) as well. Only a few short articles and this protagonist already seems more layered and intriguing than even Ezio or Altair were. I think so, anyway.
She is mixed...cause she is French and Black, that makes NO sense.. she can be a black french woman, but french isnt a race its a nationality.
@OcularVision Fucking racist idiot.
@OcularVision and @cone I lol'd pretty hard, too. ^_^ Racism should be funny...not real.
Well if you look at the modern day assassins... the only one wearing a hood would be Desmond... and thats a hoodie. People were complaining that Connor stood out in the revolution, so maybe they did that so she would stay incognito
BOOM Another open world game for the Vita. Don´t you just love Sonys handheld. OH btw i agree with you that it´s pretty cool and i love it that your excited for this game. edit: I just read an article where they stated that it would be a massive open world game with the full gameplay experience that Assasins Creed offers. I find that to be an amazing feat on a handheld and it proves that having extremely powerful hardware does make a difference to the gameplay. I honestly cant imagine this game on any other portable platform imagine trying to play it on a PSP or an iPhone. edit2: Does anyone know if there will be a 3DS version of this game? because i have a friend who loves AC and he owns a 3DS. PC
apparently you can travel all over new orleans without seeing a single loading screen :o and I heard mention of a city somewhere in mexico featuring :)
Looks good but the release date is risky. If people can only pick one up they will be picking up AC3.
Gasps! ...is that, a laaaddy?! It's a laaay-deeeee! (In my Martin Lawrence, Sheneheh voice) LOL
@ disagrees; Sooo, that's NOT a lady? I do see ta-ta's...
If the MC turns out to be a female that'll be pretty interesting. I'm sure Desmond had some female ancestors who could kick ass Haha.
She is the main character. Her name is Aveline "Set between 1765 and 1780 and somehow involving 1763's end of the French and Indian War, Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation will supposedly cast players as a French black female assassin named Aveline. The details point to Ubisoft Sofia developing the game, it not being related to Desmond, and "multiplayer specifically tailored to the Vita experience." The poster said Liberation will launch alongside the console version of Assassin's Creed III on October 30th." -IGN This is the stuff the vita needs
Thanks for the information man, +Bubs. So she wont have a direct connection to Desmond? Maybe Connor and her will cross paths. I'm officially interested. Hopefully this does better than AC Bloodlines.
I accidentally clicked disagree, sorry bout that. Thanks for all that info.
Game is set in New Orleans and you can go anywhere in New Orleans without loading times. Can't wait to see more of AC3 and now this game. That world looks pretty massive I can't imagine how big AC3 must be then.
wow gfx looks even better then the first 3 AC's hope it's not just an artwork
Are you blind? It's a bullshot which means anything would look good. This game won't come close to the first 3 AC's graphically. You people with ur overestimation
don'T be rude i m tAlking about the shot i sayed i hope its not artwork so i have right to have big hope there is no reason to be rude ... go learn how to talk to people freak
Lol rude? Quit being a little baby. And lol at the disagree's because this site is ridiculous. People honestly expect an Assassin's creed game to look better than the console version. News flash people so far every multiplatform game that was ported to the vita looks worse on the vita.
then why comment on it
Because people dont get the memo
Considering the image is an extreme bullshot (You know, since it's much larger than the Vita handheld, itself), it's probably not an accurate representation of what the game will look like. After I purchased Mortal Kombat Vita, I don't trust anything that will be hitting the handheld until I can personally view it.
True but then again you can trust in Golden Abyss and Wipeout :-) I reckon it's probably because of the Unreal Engine that MK looked liked that.
Ha! Vita is still an infant & the power has yet to be utilized.. I returned MK right away cuz i have the console version which has better character models.. way better but thats netherrealms doing cuz it was rushed out & they didnt want to comprimise 60fps.. I know vita has the power to make that game better if given the time to clean it up
Maybe, but the Vita cannot generate a resolution that's greater than the entire handheld itself. This is in fact a major bullshot, that has some serious anti-aliasing if it looks that clean, that large.
Nice. I'm glad they're using a woman this time. It should make for an interesting change. I like AC but i was never the biggest fan of the first two main characters.
Wow im going to be buying two assassins' creeds on the same day. That screenshot looks really good.
so is this just a port of AC3, or is it something slightly different.
Its a brand new story with a different character, also open world (I think its in the same place though, and from what I understand it wont be the whole map of ac3 just a portion). So ye its different which is why I am picking up both.
This game will take place in New Orleans whereas AC3 will take place in Boston and New York with a bit of the countryside.
This game equals roots+the boondocks+AC......that's awesome!
I'd kill for a Boondocks game...
Boom! my jaw dropped on the floor! If this is what we could expect i will almost buy me a second vita..
I have to wonder if this was the concept for the 3DS Assassins Creed game before it was unexpectedly cancelled. No matter i guess. This looks to be very promising & being a female character is also pretty cool. It is kinda strange that she will not be wearing a hood (yet?). The Vita needs more of these original games to go along with the console ports & new IPs. Exciting times to be a Vita owner.
As much as this makes me want to, I'm not buying a Vita for one game, I made that mistake with the PSP.
+1 for ps vita
This is exactly what I was hoping for <3 I definitely hope we her cross paths with Connor (in both versions).
Lady main character? Good way to separate from its consoles version, i see.
Cool female main character. I'm down.
This looks pretty rad. Just the start of the amazing E3 news on the Vita.
I don't mean to sound sexist but I'd really prefer playing as an ancestor of Desmond instead. I've read an article which says this lady is a complete stranger and has nothing to do with Desmond, which kind of puts me off. The graphics look gorgeous, it's obvious that they're putting a lot effort into it but why would you design a character that'll probably be -let's say- not as "cool" as the main descendants like Altair, Ezio or Connor, that I can't understand. I mean, she looks more like a pirate and she doesn't even have the iconic hood of the creed. I don't know you but I myself don't really care about this lady's story unless it has something extremely important to do with the main plot.
Well it's a tie in with Assassin Creed 3 (She meets with Connor at some point in the story). Plus we never know, maybe Connor and her get married? Who knows
Better get used to it. AC3 is Desmond's last game.
*spoiler* The eve descendant you are told to find at the end of revelations? And desmond's story hasn't really been going anywhere fast and I really cannot see how they can end desmond's story satisfactorily in this game... they haven't even shown anything todo with him in any of the game info yet released :/
Is it not the exact same game as Assassin's Creed 3 for PC and consoles or a spin-off?
No freakin' way!! My Vita is getting so much playtime this year! The only bad thing is the timing, why release two full Assassin's Creed games around the same time? They should hold this one till early Spring of next year... maybe, lol. Actually screw it, I want it now!
Hmmm well this looks good, glad my vita is getting some games lined up for it (god knows how I'm going to afford them AND the ps3 games... however :p) *spoiler* At the end of revelations the hologram guy tells you to find the other one (assuming he's reffering to an eve descendant?) would make sense if the woman you are in the animus in this AC is her :p wouldn't it? *spoiler*
Andrew Jackson was an active war general in New Orleans around that time. Hmmmm... edit nvm: "Jackson was elected as a delegate to the Tennessee constitutional convention in 1796" http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Not too far off, though, because he was there for the war of 1812. Even though the battle of New Orleans took place after the treaty was signed, communication took so long back then that they had no idea the war was over. Jackson took the tip from the infamous pirate Jean Lafitte, who had been bringing slaves into the country (at a time when it was illegal to IMPORT slaves-- the slave trade was still legal within the US). Lafitte noticed a massive buildup of british ships in Jamaica, so he tipped off Jackson who was smart enough to take the criminal's advice. Jackson assembled a small rag-tag group of cajuns and german immigrants with superb sniping skills and held off the british forces with very few losses on their side (literally like 55 men or something). New Orleans was the key to the US's back door-- treaty or no treaty, if the british had taken it, the war would've been back on. Would've been an amazing level in an AC game. But I'm BEYOND thrilled to see an AC game in this era in New Orleans. I used to live there, the short history of that city is so diverse and vibrant, there's a trillion more tales they can pull from that time period to lay down the backdrop for this game. I REALLY hope Jean Lafitte is in the game, his quarrel with the mayor (or governor, I can't remember) was infamous. They kept putting up posters with rewards for the other's head, and eventually the state refused to put more money on Lafitte's head because they couldn't afford it, but Lafitte was so rich that the bounty for Claiborne was higher than the bounty on his own head. I considered a degree in Louisiana history at one point, so for me, this game is the ultimate nerdgasm.
Ok this game I will definately get! AC on the PSP was AWESOME!!! I'm bored by the console ones but for VITA I will definately get it!!!!
Fron what magazine was that image captured from? Update:Game Informer. I'm definitely buying the new issue through their new iPad app. Nice that people outside the US can easily buy their magazine now.
ths will be my first assassins creed game.
