“I seek liberty and freedom, not for myself, but for those whom such fundamental rights are denied. I am their shield, their sword, their only hope. The roads I travel are dark, but they bring me closer to the light.
Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation did not feature Desmond Miles, but rather an unknown individual, due to the game being a product released by Abstergo Industries to the public. Liberation was created and used by Abstergo as a propaganda tool to depict a grey area side of the conflict between the Assassins and Templars, through censoring out negative acts by the Templars and depicting only the positive points of their influence, along with the misguided and disorganized Assassin Order.
However, Liberation was breached early on by Erudito, a hacking collective operating in opposition to Abstergo. Erudito gave players the opportunity to view uncensored memories that Abstergo had originally covered up, revealing to them the truth about the Assassins and Templars.
Both Liberation and Assassin’s Creed III operated on the same game engine, meaning gameplay in Liberation is very similar to Assassin’s Creed III in terms of climbing and combat. Many of the new features that were present in Assassin’s Creed III were available to Aveline, such as double-counters and combo kills, as well as the ability to freerun through trees.
Liberation included a variety of weapons from previous installments, as well as cleavers, hatchets and axes, pistols, a blowpipe and a whip.Chain kills were implemented using the touchscreen, allowing Aveline to take down multiple opponents
Liberation also included multiplayer “specifically tailored to the Vita experience,”and utilized cross-goods between itself and Assassin’s Creed III on the PlayStation 3, with synchronizing the pair granting Aveline the use of Connor’s tomahawk, and allowed the player to play from Connor’s perspective during a mission in New York.
Accompanying this, pre-order content featured a “Mysteries of the Bayou” pack, including an exclusive hat, an Animi Avatar, a dagger and an upgrade in ammunition. In an exclusive edition (excluding pre-order content), the game was also bundled with a special “Crystal White PS Vita Wi-Fi.”
Liberation also included a new mechanic in the form of chain-kill, which allowed Aveline to take out multiple opponents after interacting with the Vita’s touch screen, amongst other features such as stroking the touch-screen up or down to row faster or slower while in canoes. Accompanying this, Aveline was able to enter an outfit shop to dress in disguises, which provided advantages and disadvantages for each of the costumes available.
