Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD out on PSN today


Today marks the PlayStation 3 debut of Ubisoft's high-definition retread of Assassin's Creed: Liberation.

As with its original Vita incarnation, Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD follows the adventures of Aveline de Grandpré, a female assassin operating in New Orleans in the aftermath of the French and Indian War. Like all Assassin's Creed entries, the game focuses on stealth, parkour-esque acrobatics and stabbing jerks in the spine, neck, face and whatever other body parts are within dagger-range. The biggest addition found in this entry is a new costume system that allows Aveline to alter her style of dress to pass unnoticed in certain echelons of 18th century society.

New to this latest release are enhanced, high-definition graphics, improved audio, new missions and the addition of "
Aveline's trademark whip," which is useful both in combat and when attempting to swing across gaps too large to jump.

Today's PlayStation 3 release of Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD will be followed by PC and Xbox 360 versions tomorrow.
