Assassin's Creed 4 will focus on an older Aveline
The Aveline featured in the PlayStation-exclusive content coming to Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag will be an older heroine than what we've previously seen in Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation. Ubisoft has revealed that Aveline will have three missions, each taking place some time after the conclusion of Liberation.

"It's a ways forward so Aveline is a bit older," Ubisoft lead writer Darby McDevitt revealed during a panel at Comic-Con that has since been transcribed on the Ubisoft blog. "It's not directly related to the end of her story. If Assassin's Creed 4 is like a novel, Aveline's missions are like a short story."

Aveline is of French and African descent, born to a wealthy French merchant and his African common-law slave wife in 1747.
