Arcade: Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD

ACLHDContent: Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD
Check price and availability in your Xbox LIVE region
Dash Text: Assassin’s Creed® Liberation HD, is the remastered striking chapter of the pre-American Revolution Assassin’s Creed saga . 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, an Assassin with a French and African mixed heritage, who finds herself on an unforgettable journey that will take her from the crowded streets of New Orleans to voodoo-haunted swamps and ancient Mayan ruins. Taking full advantage of its new hardware, Assassin’s Creed® Liberation HD introduces graphical improvements and new missions that dive deeper into Aveline’s story.

Add the game trial to your Xbox 360 download queue

 

Assassin's Creed Liberation HD

As Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD marks the debut of Assassin Aveline de Grandpré on Xbox 360, we asked Ubisoft what was new for the HD version of the game. Ubisoft Community Developer Gabe Graziani answered the call with the following:

For Aveline’s first visit to the Xbox 360, we wanted to make sure that she put her best foot forward, and we’ve compiled a list of just three of those things to ensure you don’t miss them!

Agaté’s Hideout – Agaté is Aveline’s mentor and he lives deep in the swampy bayou. His hideout climbs nearly to the top of a gigantic tree, with ramshackle rooms built one on top of another in a crazy stack, barely clinging to the tree for support. Agaté’s Hideout illustrates a few major improvements in Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD, but primarily shows off the improved organic environments as well as Aveline’s upgraded ability to move through it using refined navigation mechanics that smooth out climbing and running paths.

Wicked Whip – Aveline’s trademark whip acts similar to the Rope Dart used by Edward Kenway and his grandson Connor, but with one key improvement: she can use it to swing across gaps. Sure, it’s devastating in combat and you can use it to trip up enemies to make them more vulnerable, but the added swinging ability means that Aveline is among the most mobile and nimble Assassins yet!

High Performance – We’ve pushed the AnvilNext Engine to deliver a truly HD gaming experience, and you’ll notice right away that Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD runs at an incredibly smooth framerate. Tuned to take full advantage of high definition resolutions, our team has completely reworked textures to pack in the maximum amount of detail possible. Everything has been boosted, from more vibrant colors to re-mastered music and sound effects!

Join Aveline de Grandpré, a liberator of the enslaved… and an Assassin!

Assassin's Creed Liberation HD
