Ubisoft announced today that Assassin's Creed Liberation HD will arrive for PlayStation 3 through the PlayStation Store on January 14, 2014. The game will be available for $20.
A high-definition version of the 2012 PlayStation Vita game, Assassin's Creed Liberation HD features 15 new missions based on main character Aveline's three personas: Assassin, Lady, and Servant.
The game is set in New Orleans between 1765 and 1780 in the period spanning the end of the French and Indian War, up to the middle of the American Revolution. The game tells the story of Aveline, the first female lead in the series, who is of mixed French and African heritage.
Recruited to the Assassins by an escaped slave, Aveline joins the struggle against the Templars as they try to take control of New Orleans following France’s handover of the city to Spain. Striking hard and fast, she is instrumental in the Louisiana Rebellion that forces the Spanish and Templars out of the city for nearly two years before they return in force.
Assassin's Creed Liberation HD is also in development at Ubisoft Sofia for Xbox 360 and PC, though release dates for those platforms have not been announced.
