Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD logo spotted online

Leaked selection of Ubisoft logos shows Rabbids Big Bang and Rayman: Fiesta Run alongside Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD.

PlayStation Vita spin-off Assassin's Creed III: Liberation could be heading to other platforms, a leaked selection of Ubisoft logos suggests.

The image, claiming to be logos from existing and upcoming Ubisoft digital titles, first popped up on Chinese forum A9VG (via NeoGAF). Liberation is shown as Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD.

Liberation was released on the PlayStation Vita alongside the launch of Assassin's Creed III last year. The game's protagonist, Aveline de Grandpre, will also feature in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, via additional content exclusive to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

Ubisoft says Assassin's Creed: Liberation sales have reached almost 600,000.

Also shown was Assassin's Creed: Pirates, suggesting a potential tie-in app for the piracy-themed Assassin's Creed IV.

Rabbids Big Bang, Endwar Online, Rayman: Fiesta Run, Valiant Hearts: The Great War, Poptropica: Forgotten Islands, and Just Dance Auto Dance were also shown, alongside previously announced titles Trials Frontier and Child of Light.

GameSpot has approached Ubisoft for comment.

Will they fix all the horrible bugs that infect the game?

Will they make more and better tutorials, so that half the game isn't an unexplained mess?

Will it have better or worse mapping? Will the canoe controls be worth anything? Will the Menu UI be more sensible laid out?

There should be a rule that only games that are in working condition should get remakes.

If they fix everything that's wrong with Liberation, and give it out to Liberation buyers for free, then that would be a worthwhile effort for the consumers.

But if i have to buy the same sub-par game over again to get rid of the bugs that make it borderline unplayable, i'm gonna call for the people who got the original to stand up and call attention to how bad and bug-ridden the original game is.

Just Dance Auto Dance? It's about time they added some dancing cars to that franchise! I can't wait to breakdance with a BMW or get the achievement "He's got the moves like Mercedes".

Assassin's Creed: Pirates? Why not just start a new franchise, because these new games have nothing to do with Assassin's Creed.

I see the benefit of porting games like Peace Walker and Liberation to HD consoles, mainly because it improves the games but also so that non-handheld users don't miss out.

So uh how about Liberation on PSN+ in October before AC4 release?

THis will be great news IF (and only if) they flesh out Liberation a little more to make the plot at least understandable AND re-voice the whole damn thing.  Worst voice acting in the series.  Wonderful idea, great idea for a protagonist, but they let it all go to waste.  They spent almost no time at all on Aveline's characterization and companion Elise Lafleur featured the single worst fake french accent I have ever heard in any media.

Liberation was average, I was so hyped to play it and it was one of the main reasons I got a Vita and it blowed compared to what I expected....

Didn't this game suck more than a dyson?

The lack of effort put into Liberation's female protagonist felt like such a waste though, Aveline has major potential to be an amazing character but she just doesn't quite reach it for me.

It was still a worthwhile entry into the franchise though, great starting point to build on for the Vita.

A new End War? That would work awesome with Kinect. Cant wait for that game.

It's probably a spin-off for mobile. That's my best guess.

PS Executive:  "Why don't more people buy the PS Vita?"

Gaming Public:  "Because so many of your games get the HD treatment on a system we already own...PS3."


I'm glad I didn't buy a PSP for God of War.  NOW I'm glad I didn't buy a Vita for Liberation.

@DrBob27 assassin's creed is about an acient secret order that hunts down templars for the greater good. I'd say the game has everything to do with Assassin's creed title.

 @IncisionX the only good AC games are AC2 and Brotherhood... so ya... i don't even expect AC4 to be any good after how bad AC3 was

If you like Assassins Creed the game didn't suck. The tacked on PITA motion controls sucked but the game itself was pretty good.

@sundown19 I made that mistake with God of War, I bought a PSP for Chains of Olympus and later Ghost of Sparta and both were released as HD remakes for the PS3 I already had to begin with. 

The same thing happened with Castlevania: LOS: Mirror of Fate, people bought a 3DS for it but now an HD version is being released on the PS3 and 360. I'm glad I held out and didn't get a PS Vita for Liberation.

@sundown19 Love my Vita, paid $400 for it in South America... don't regret a single cent. Amazing system... I'm am quite saddened that they are bringing the HD treatment though... next week Uncharted: Golden Abyss HD will be leaked

@sundown19 Although I have a Vita, this is sadly true.  PS is screwing up so bad with the Vita.
