Aveline in Assassins Creed Liberation

Assassin's Creed Liberation's Aveline de Grandpré moves from Vita to PS3.

Connor isn't the only assassin getting involved in politics in America; Aveline de Grandpré moves from her original Vita title to her appearance in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag to her standalone presence on the PS3 in Assassin's Creed Liberation HD.

First released on the PS Vita as Assassin's Creed III: Liberation, the game takes place in Louisiana from 1765 to 1777. Aveline is an African-French assassin who uncovers a plot concerning the rule over New Orleans at the end of the French and Indian War in which France's defeat in the war meant the Spanish government could occupy the city. The rerelease for the PS3 has improved graphics from the original, remastered audio, and new missions. Old missions have also been tweaked to improve pacing. Aveline's trademark whip can be used in both combat and navigation.

Aveline is the first female assassin to be featured as a main, playable character in the series. She fights for liberation often on the side of civilians and slaves, observing from a young age the conflicts in society among the rich and poor, free and enslaved. She briefly meets Connor in her travels to New York. Aveline also has three guises - Assassin, Lady, and Slave - and players can choose which outfit best works for a mission.

Assassin's Creed Liberation HD launches on PC and Xbox 360 tomorrow. European players can pick up the game tomorrow. The digital release costs $19.99.
