Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed III is already available on the PlayStation Network, at least in the US, having been pushed live overnight. The mainline PlayStation 3 version is there for download, along with the Liberation title for the PlayStation Vita, something that hasn’t seen much in the way of previews or reviews yet.
The game isn’t out at retail until later today across the pond, and won’t be around until Friday in the UK. We’re hoping that SCEE manage to get the game out during tomorrow’s PSN Store Update but chances are it’ll be locked off until Friday for us here in Blighty and the rest of these isles.
Peter’s been playing the Xbox 360 version of Assassin’s Creed III for as long as I can remember, and we’ll have our thoughts on the game later today. The Vita version remains an unknown, though, so hopefully the relative silence doesn’t mean that it’s a bit of a stinker and it’s actually alright.
Assassin’s Creed III was recently the subject of much discussion after it was revealed the game comes with micro-transactions to top up some kind of finance level. There’s also a season pass thrown in for good measure. You can read our latest preview on the game here, although we’re advising you stay away from any potential spoilers.
The Vita game is 2.7GB.
