Today Ubisoft announced two new entries in the famous Assassin’s Creed franchise: Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD for consoles, and Assassin’s Creed Pirates for mobile devices.
Originally released on the PS Vita, Assassin’s Creed Liberation is getting a HD over hall, and set to come to PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in 2014. The remaster, according to Ubisoft, will receive a “complete graphical overhaul, re- mastered music and sound effects, a revamped gameplay experience, and new missions that dive deeper into Aveline’s story.”
The original team Ubisoft Sofia will be working on the game, with optional story elements in Vita’s Liberation made essential to clear confusions within the plot.
Assassin’s Creed: Pirates, is coming to “high-end smartphones and tablets” later this fall. The title will be developed by Ubisoft Paris and centres heavily around naval battles (surprise!). Pirates follows protagonist Alonzo Batilla, as he “rises through the ranks of the fearful pirates of the golden age.” Ubisoft also suggested that the mobile game will reveal “the truth about La Buse’s mysterious treasure”, as well as present interactions with the “Templars and the Assassins as they struggle for supremacy and meet the famed figures of the era: Blackbeard, Bellamy and Hornigold.”
Several features of the game have also been detailed, such as “dozens of side missions, treasures quests, perks and achievements” with “groundbreaking 3D visuals.”
This mobile game shouldn’t be confused with the companion app for Assassin’s Creed Black Flag. Pirates also contains a completely different storyline to Black Flag, although it is set in the same setting.
