The latest issue of Game Informer magazine has revealed Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation for the PS Vita. The title will feature an entirely different protagonist from the console version of Assassin’s Creed III. Instead of Connor, players will control a female assasssin, a french woman named Aveline.
Set in New Orleans during the same time period as Assassin’s Creed III, Liberation’s main character is not a descendant of Desmond Miles. Instead, another new character will be introduced as the one using the animus to access Aveline’s memories in-game.
The title is said to arrive on the same day as Assassin’s Creed III arrives on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, so for now Vita fans, you can mark October 30th as the expected arrival date. Of course, being a Vita title, Ubisoft will be utilizing the rear and front touch pads for unique gameplay controls.
Expect to hear more about Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation at E3 2012, which begins next week.
