With each passing day, I’m getting more and more burst-at-the-seams excited for Assassin’s Creed III. Most of that excitement is, I confess, for the core game that features Connor. That said, I think that the idea behind Liberation, the PlayStation Vita spin off, is a good one. It’s set at the same time, with a female assassin operating in and around New Orleans. At that time, New Orleans was changing hands between the French and Spanish colonists and played a massively important role in trade routes out of and in to the New World.
The Vita game isn’t intended as a mainline feature of the story – as with Desmond’s ancestral memories in the HD console game. It’s a product created by Abstergo to demonstrate that things in history are not always as they seem – there are grey areas.
Anyway, that’s all for another time. Today’s excitement comes from these three screenshots which show Aveline using her whip, piloting a canoe and cavorting with a French aristocrat.
