Assassin's Creed Liberation HD hits Xbox 360 on January 15

[UPDATE] Publishers confirms launch date is for all regions worldwide.

[UPDATE] A Ubisoft representative told GameSpot this afternoon that the January 15 release date for the Xbox 360 version of Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD is for all regions worldwide.

The original story is below.

The Xbox 360 version of Assassin's Creed Liberation HD will arrive in the United Kingdom through Xbox Live on January 15, according to a tweet from the Ubisoft UK Twitter account.

It is unclear if January 15 is also the date that the game will come to Xbox 360 in North America. A Ubisoft representative was not immediately available to comment.

The PlayStation 3 version of Assassin's Creed Liberation launches on January 14. The game is also coming to PC, though Ubisoft has not said when this version will launch.

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.

I wish there was no personas altogether, Lady is a slow pain in the ass that takes away freerunning and Slave is just a weak Assassin mode. This game was pretty ill designed from the get go.

I was hoping for it to be on disc. Doesn't matter anyway, it sounds fun.

A less grandiose Assassin's Creed III sounds like a way better Assassin's Creed III. I'm in.

Does Ubisoft have a much bigger fanbase for Assassin's Creed on PlayStation or something? Because PS owners have been having it all their way lately, exclusive content in AC4 for PS3 and PS4 and now AC Liberation HD comes out a day earlier on PlayStation. Although I own both a PS3 and 360, I have always played AC on 360 and I feel a bit fucked over by Ubisoft

I've recently played through the Vita version, and while I had fun overall unless they flesh out the story cut-scenes with slightly better acting and more cohesive scripting this one is not going to go down very well with non-portable console owners when compared to the other games in the series.

timing is a little odd considering everyone is drooling over next gen systems

Does the game run at 8 frames per second, too-- or is that just the video?

Your story facts are slightly incorrect. Ubisoft HAS set a PC release date for the 15th January. That date is official and can be confirmed, like the pre-order on Steam, among other places.

I, for one, cannot wait for this. I loved the Vita game through all its faults. Just wish they'd pop this over to PS4 as well.

The Steam page says Jan 15th and they are pretty on-the-ball with with release dates from major publishers.  Haven't decided if I'm getting this on the PC or 360, probably will boil down to price if there is a difference.

@Pondelicious Maybe Sony and Ubi have exclusive deal, or else Liberation won't take so long to reach consoles. Just like MS with Activition on CoD and EA on some games with exclusive content on Xbox. Not to mention that Sony also has exclusive content with Ubisoft on Watch Dogs too...

@Pondelicious Brotherhood has extra missions on ps3 and revelations came with assassins creed 1 on ps3 too, could just be sony paying extra money or something

@Pondelicious on the extra content part i agree with you but on the part about it being released earlier on playstation that is not an issue all it is down to is playstation release digital content on a tuesday and xbox release it on a wed

@Pondelicious It's one day, man. I'd hate to see how you'd react if somebody actually tried to pull one over on you.

@Pondelicious Wouldn't you be fucking your self over, you realize that you can just play AC on your PS3, getting the extra content, I mean they did say that AC 3 and AC 4 both got PS3 exclusive content before they launched.

@fieldofview Ehh, I think Assassin's Creed Liberation: Super Ultra Edition would be milking, they are just releasing a popular game across as many platforms as possible, just a good business move for them...

@Ultra_Taco 

I don't know if it's the final price (I would assume it is), but PSN has it priced at $19.99 for the pre-order.

@demondogx This is like the recent Resident Evil game. A handheld game ported to consoles.

@demondogx it was a vita game that they are re-releasing so that we can all be filled in on the story line. they make references to liberation in AC4 so I am guessing that the story is relevant to the other games and I guess they wanted to put in on platforms other than vita so more people could get caught up.

@Ambivalist @Pondelicious I was more annoyed by the exclusive content mate. I can handle one day obviously but I just said it to help prove my point. comprenez-vous?

@ThrashMatt26 @Pondelicious I bought all of the Assassin's Creed games on 360 and I much preferred the controller for it, call me stubborn but I wasn't going to make the switch for one game

@padako @demondogx It runs in tandem with AC3. The protagonist even meets Connor at one point, and presumably passes out mid conversation.
