Assassin’s Creed is a franchise that has captivated the hearts of countless gamers and Ubisoft intends to continue to do so by steadily releasing new titles in the series available for gamers on all platforms. During Ubisoft’s Digital Days event yesterday they announced the development of two new titles in the AC universe including Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD and Assassin’s Creed Pirates. Due to the success of Assassin’s Creed Liberation on the PS Vita, Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD will be making its way to consoles (Xbox 360 and PS3) and PC, while Assassin’s Creed Pirates will be available on smartphones and tablets.
AC Liberation HD will feature a complete graphics overhaul to make good use of the increased graphical and processing capabilities of its handheld counterpart, re-mastered music and sound effects, a “revamped gameplay experience”, and new missions that will have you dive deeper into Aveline’s story.
AC Pirates on the other hand, will as its name suggests, take you deeper into the Golden Age of Piracy much like AC4 Black Flag, however it is a completely separate game and should not be confused with the companion app either. You will take on the role of Alonzo Batilla, a young and ambitious captain, that will focus on naval combat. You will be able to manage your crew, upgrade your ship, recruit additional crew members, and engage in massive real-time naval battles in the hope of becoming the greatest pirate in the Caribbean. The game will also sport a brand new mobile engine to bring 3D visuals to smartphones and tablets.
