Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD Trailer Brings “Justice For All”

on January 15, 2014 3:56 PM

Previously created exclusively for PS Vita, Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD takes the little screen portable adventure and magnifies it to HD console quality: now you can get another look at the game, with the “Justice For All” trailer below.

A little more risky, possibly, than the Creed games before it, Liberation was known for having an African-American female as a protagonist, Aveline de Grandpré, and set during an era when slavery was in full swing. Aveline herself, daughter of both a slave mother and a father “of opportunity and wealth,” is notable for having a narrative based somewhat on the plight of her people, a much avoided topic in gaming and something developers Ubisoft Sofia should take pride in venturing into, and a topic showcased in the trailer.

Of course, the game was also notable for it’s use of disguises/personas that could be used for varying purposes, and for bringing console quality graphics and gameplay to handhelds. Hopefully, that same quality will be enhanced even further with the game’s release to PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms, available today.
