Assassin’s Creed, an annual blockbuster for Ubisoft, just keeps on raking in the dough! Apparently not content with the mass amounts of money that ACIV: Black Flag will undoubtedly be bringing in this October, Ubisoft made two big announcements this week.
Assassin’s Creed Liberation, an exclusive title for the PS Vita that debuted in 2012, will be getting the console treatment for 2014. Liberation, which tells the tale of Aveline de Grandpré during the end of the French and Indian War, will be coming to the Xbox 360 and the PS3 via digital download. According to Ubisoft, Liberation HD offers
A complete graphical overhaul, re- mastered music and sound effects, a revamped gameplay experience, and new missions that dive deeper into Aveline’s story
Speaking of beating something into the ground, Ubisoft announced a new mobile game for tablets and smart phones as well. Assassin’s Creed Pirates follows the exploits of Alonzo Batilla as he rises through the ranks of the golden age of pirates. During the course of the game, players will be able to purchase upgrades to their ships as well as recruiting new crew members. Ubisoft promises
An adventure that will reveal the truth about La Buse’s mysterious treasure as well as interactions with the Templars and the Assassins as they struggle for supremacy and meet the famed figures of the era: Blackbeard, Bellamy and Hornigold. Pirates will offer dozens of side missions, treasures quests, perks and achievements and groundbreaking 3D visuals.
AC Pirates is not a companion app for ACIV Black Flag (Ubisoft says that there will be one of those that will launch with ACIV…sigh), but promises it’s own campaign with updates after launch. Pirates will be heading to your mobile devices, for a small fee, in the Fall of 2013. Check out the launch trailer and let us know what you think!
