Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD

Assassin's Creed: The Americas Collection will release for PC in Europe and Australia, but not in North America

Ubisoft last week announced the Assassin's Creed: The Americas Collection, a bundle including Assassin's Creed 3, Assassin's Creed: Liberation and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (sick of the words 'Assassin's Creed' yet?). That's all well and good, but it appears PC owners in North America will not be able to buy the bundle. While a PC edition of The Americas Collection has been confirmed for Europe and Australia, the same won't be true for the US.

Assasssin's Creed: Liberation HD review

Two mere months since Black Flag, a big fat Christmas goose of a game that filled bellies to bursting point and still lingers on the tongue, comes the unappetising Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD. It's the videogame equivalent of finding a half-chomped digestive down your trousers.

A Vita game from 2012, Liberation's low-rent roots are immediately clear. Visuals are basic and animation crude despite the HD spruce, and the featured setting - an 18th century Louisiana incorporating New Orleans and Chichen Itza - feels oddly familiar. A croc-infested bayou bridging the two locations is essentially a murky version of ACIII's wilderness. Granted, it's an interesting period for yet another spot of virtual tourism, Ubisoft casting their historical lens on the French and Indian War, the American Revolutionary War, and the horrors of slavery therein.

Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD to bring spin-off stabbing to PC

As worthy a goal as liberation may be, most of us aren't going bother if it means dealing with those ugly "low" definitions. Not only that, but playing Assassin's Creed 3 spin-off Liberations would have meant buying a PS Vita, which, according to sales figures, is not something a lot of people have done. Perhaps because of this fact, Ubisoft have announced Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD; appending the near-meaningless suffix to an upgraded version of the game that's due for release on PC and the less portable consoles.
