Ubisoft Bringing “Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation” Exclusively to PlayStation Vita

Handheld Game Introduces the First Female Assassin Lead, Set in Late 18th Century New Orleans

MONTRÉAL – June 4, 2012 – Today at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed III Liberation will be released on October 30 exclusively for the PlayStation®Vita, bringing the full Assassin’s Creed experience to a handheld device for the first time.

Developed by Ubisoft Sofia, Assassin’s Creed III Liberation includes key pillars of the franchise that fans of the series know and love, including combat, free-roaming navigation and a rich story full of intrigue and twists, delivering a true Assassin’s Creed experience to the PlayStation Vita. Gamers play as the series’ first female assassin protagonist, Aveline. A woman of conviction, Aveline is fighting for freedom in 18th century New Orleans – a city on the brink of a rebellion as the Spanish Empire imposes its new rule.  Assassin’s Creed III Liberation also features Vita-specific controls, making the most of the system’s front and rear touch panels, cameras and gyroscope. These include distinctive combat, character interaction, deciphering and traversal controls – all delivering an immersive handheld Assassin’s Creed experience.

“We are bringing one of most popular video game franchises today to the PlayStation Vita with Assassin’s Creed III Liberation,” said Martin Capel, producer, Ubisoft. “Combining the console-like experience with PlayStation Vita exclusive features, Assassin’s Creed III Liberation will be a must-have for the PlayStation Vita this holiday.”
