Ubisoft is happy with Liberation sales; teases more Aveline

Ubisoft is very satisfied with what Assassin's Creed: Liberation sold and teases more Aveline on future releases (Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation, PS Vita, Ubisoft)

Oh sweet, nice to hear we'll be getting more AC on Vita. Hopefully the second installment will be a bit more fleshed out since they've had time to work with the system now.
GribbleGrunger  +   620d ago
Yes, I had a feeling that they'd be happy with the sales. 100,000 on a system with a 3 million install base is WELL above average sales and those figures did not include the downloadable version. I bet they got at least another 25 - 35,000 sales on top of the retail version... and the sales only reflected the first week.

I downloaded a few days ago after getting the $20 PSN promotional credit. I like the game a lot, but there are some weird glitches. The markers on the mini map bounce all over the place at times... especially when you're fighting or running. Oh, and this little glitch I got on video.

im very happy to hear this news. hopefully more developers along with ubisoft will continue to support the ps vita with high quality games. im very happy with the ps vita and i cant wait to see more gameplay about killzone mercenaries and other big titles.

assassins creed liberation has a few glitches like a lot of other games and shouldn't be discredited as a good one due to a few faults. assassins creed 3 is quite glitchy on consoles but i hope they can be all fixed with patches.

Great to hear. Hopefully more developers jump on the vita. I you make a good game people will throw there money at you. I certainly do:D

Hope they bring out a LE edition for the next AC on vita, I'd buy it for sure.

@guitarded77

I'd actually be willing to bet the download sales exceeded the retail sales.

Yea,if they just had a good frame rate and a little bit better engine...i mean,the engine looks amazing in open worlds but where your in small eviorments and buildings is not really that nice looking.Im still waiting for the destroy all humans Hd collection for it...yes its confirmed.
Jinkies  +   620d ago
Hopefully not

I just thought Aveline was bland, there was no character to her. I really want them to feature another Assassin if they are going to do a new one, maybe that Russian one from the comics.

It bugs me, same goes for Connor, why can't they get good voice actors for the roles. They always seem a little robotic or emotionless.

I hope they do a female Assassin for AC4 though, maybe that London setting during the WW1/WW2 would be good fit while all the men are out to war. Least then we can get more of a backstory on Eve and her descendants.

Who knows, maybe they'll greatly expand upon her character in the next AC game for Vita. I haven't played it yet, so I can't say one way or the other on how good/bad she was. Still, always nice to give a second chance. If she's still bland in the next one, then I'd say drop her lol.
GribbleGrunger  +   620d ago
I'm going to hold off speculating until we know for certain the next game with Aveline IS actually on the Vita. They say they want to explore her character further but make no mention that it will definitely be on the Vita... Fingers crossed, it will, but I'm going to wait and see.

Same here... if they plan to continue with her... they need to make her interesting

However Connor is understandable since they wanted to be authentic, and repestful to the Kanehkahaha people

Also... I really liked Connor. I though he was a good character... however there choice of voice actor was out of respect

Avelines VA, there is no excuse. She is using a fake accent and its so obvious it makes me cringe when I hear dialouge.

Also let me choose the persona, rather than your stuck playing as this one.

Also... take a decent attempt to make multiplayer.. I mean... WTF is the mp in ACL?

A vita tailored experience? More like a f**king facebook game

Take the AC mp, and scale it down for vita

AND GET RID OF THE STUPID VITA MINIGAMES!

Just let me assassinate in peace, without being forced to use the gyroscope, look for a light source, or some gimicky letter opening mechanic

Also... Nikoli is out of the question, since

1) He is the grandfather of Daniel Cross
2) He dies in the comics

Although I also believe that AC4 will star a female assassin

If they replace the voice actor behind her and dive more into her history, I'd be interested.

Only thing I really don't like is the voice actor behind her. Sounds like she is reading script for the first time and randomly trying to act it out.....
Blazee  +   620d ago
I really want to see the series continuation on Vita. Hopefully they can do something big.
LusoGamer  +   620d ago
Agreed. Ubi won't let us down.
extermin8or  +   620d ago
Hmm this is good news, rather a different assassin though with a slightly better character/storyline going on but the game was good so :)
izumo_lee  +   620d ago
It is good to hear. When developers get a handle of what the Vita can do they can make games more suited to the hardware. Knowing the strengths & limitations of the system Ubisoft & other developers can use the knowledge they now have to improve the games they make for the Vita.
Slysi  +   620d ago
Great,because I'm loving the game
SaffronCurse  +   620d ago
MAKE A SPLINTER CELL FOR VITA!
teedogg80  +   619d ago
Great idea! I never even thought of that.
Myst  +   620d ago
Awesome Aveline is a great character like connor and would like to see both kind of expanded upon.
phantomexe  +   620d ago
I'd just be happy if they would fix the bugs. Whats the ETA on a patch because mine is still buged to beat all hell.
rpd123  +   620d ago
Great. I liked Aveline but her characterization was terrible and the plot was jumpy. If they continue with her it'd be nice to see her character develop a bit more.
Hanso  +   620d ago
hi im interested in this Game
i heard there is a gamebreaking bug did it got pachted??
KUV1977  +   620d ago
Not yet.

There is also a bug with stat-tracking. The timer only runs in the menues. While I am in Sequence IV it only took me 17 minutes, according to the stat-tracking. But I take that over the complete progress-loss any day.

Yeah I apparently have 2 hours of gameplay (beat it in like 20 hrs) and have collected 50 alligator eggs (I've gotten like 3).
Hanso  +   620d ago
thx for the info have a bubble+

man i want them to fix the progress-loss bug or i wont buy it. I cant stand that..
KUV1977  +   620d ago
The aligator egg thing is probably not even a tracking bug but a display 'bug'. In the activity log it shows the amount in percent but doesn't say so. I was just as confused at first. This ist true for everything: Pages, Dolls, Eggs, even tower-syncs.
DivineAssault  +   620d ago
great news.. I would love a well thought out & bug free sequel.. This game is awesome when there isnt something spoiling the fun like lights, mazes, & other gimick features
tiffac008  +   620d ago
Aveline deserves a more focus and in debt story. Ubi tried too much with the Abstergo Animus angle and it kind of impacted the fluidity of the story.
r21  +   620d ago
Sweet, more AC on the vita please :D
Ethereal  +   620d ago
Ill be picking it up soon =)
TheDivine  +   620d ago
Fix this one before you think about anything else. Fix the big so I can play it or give us a refund. If there's dlc it better be free for selling a broken game and losing all my hard work.
DrDeath  +   620d ago
Corrupt saves happen all the time. not just to AC3:L. I havnt lost my saves and game plays fine. few bugs here and there. Console version app. has even more issues just the way assassins creeds are i hear but these are the worst yet in terms of bugs. its a solid 8/10 game
XINTSUAI  +   620d ago
Well, so now it's time to correct all the bugs that the game have, my game stopped to send me missions , I'm waiting for a path to continue the game.
