Assassin's Creed® Liberation HD

Release date — January 2014
Developer — Ubisoft Sofia
The year is 1765. As the events leading up to the American Revolution heat up in the north, Spanish forces plan to take control of Louisiana in the south – but they have yet to reckon with Aveline, a deadly Assassin who will use every weapon and ability in her arsenal to win freedom for her land and her people. Whether silently eliminating her enemies with slow-motion chain kills or luring them into deadly traps, Aveline strikes mortal fear into the hearts of those who stand in her way.

Arriving for the first time as a digital title on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, Assassin’s Creed® Liberation HD is the striking chapter of the pre-American Revolution Assassin’s Creed saga, featuring unique assassin gameplay mechanics, an immersive Assassin’s Creed storyline delivered in stunning high-definition.

AMD has been trailing Intel in the x86 performance space for years now. Ever since the introduction of the first Core 2 processors in 2006, AMD hasn been able to recover and return to the heyday of the Athlon 64 and Athlon 64 X2. Instead the company has remained relevant by driving costs down and competing largely in the sub $200 microprocessor space. AMD ability to hold on was largely due to its more cores for less strategy. Thanks to aggressive pricing on its triple and hexa core parts, for users who needed tons of cores, AMD has been delivering a lot of value over the past couple of years.

Got the AC IV Season Pass for Xbox, and yet when I go to try and buy Liberation either in game or at the Xbox Live menu, it's still coming up with the cost as being £15.99 instead of £11.99.

Any ideas as to why that's happening? I even tried re-downloading the Season Pass to see if that would help it register, but it's not changed anything. I would appreciate some help on the matter!

Where in the Description on the Season pass does it say it's a Pre-purchase incentive for the discount of liberation? I believe the exact text on the Season pass was "For a limited time only, all players that purchase or have already purchased the Season Pass for Assassin's Creed® IV Black Flag™ on Xbox 360 will receive 25% off their purchase of Assassin's Creed Liberation HD."

Poor Form Ubisoft.

I own the ACIV Black Flag Season Pass on Xbox 360 but the discount is not being applied to Assassin's Creed Liberation HD. Help Ubisoft!

Well, that's it. I'll never buy another Ubi-Soft game again. Not ALL of us have Live connections or can afford it. As a matter of fact, I think you'll be losing quite a few of us. Screw Ubi-soft

I'm in the same boat @Jake, I traded in my 360 for XBone. I am crossing my fingers that like with other titles in the past they push out the whole Assassin's Creed Series for the XBone. I would love to play through the older titles, But I don't have an older console anymore. I had AC3 for about 2 months when my PS3 burned up. Never got far in the game. Now I've traded in my ALL my consoles for XBone and unfortunately can't play the older AC games as well as some other games I recently was playing on my XB360 like Batman Arkam Origins. A shame to cause I just got that game right before XB360 trade in. Hoping to see some of these titles sent to XBone so I can resume awesome gameplay.

Will it be available on PS4?

I can't buy the game on the PSN; it says I've already purchased the season pass for Black Flag...which is true, but how does that matter?

Do you guys ever notice that the article posters only answers questions that they can use to pimp their own articles, Ubisoft, and Ubisofts games? That is, if they take the time to answer at all. One would think that they would want to make the people actually taking the time to check the blog and get involved by asking questions feel some level of connection and support. I realize one of the purposes of the Ubiblog is to advertise the games and drum up interest, but it sure doesn't seem to care about fostering a lot of goodwill.

We need a Wii U-version! :(

New Version for PS Vita please!!!

Will liberation be released in disc form. Making it a download only really limits the players who done have Internet on their consoles. Not all of us live our lives with online gaming...Xbox 360 btw

If I buy the AC 4 season pass next week, will I still get the $5 off of Liberation HD?

Matt 5pts

So when does the season pass go live? I just checked the Playstation Store and it's not on there. Is it supposed to go live when the Black Flag is released? I seem to remember ACIII's season pass going live prior to release, but I might be remembering wrong. I'm looking forward to playing Liberation, though, I don't have a Vita and I've really wanted to play this, so I was hoping they would port it to the consoles.

It was the same on PS3. That's why I bought season pass...

You can't prepurchase stuff on the 360 marketplace. It just doesn't do that.

guillermo 5pts

Jake 5pts

I'm trying to buy it, but I'm not seeing a PS4 option? (I traded in my old consoles for the next gen.) Will that coming later?
