To quote: Bet you didn't see this one coming, eh PlayStation Assassins? It's with a great deal of pleasure and a substantial amount of pride that we announce Assassin's Creed III Liberation for PS Vita!
Liberation introduces an all-new assassin named Aveline, and takes place in the rich, varied and vibrant environments of 18th-century Louisiana.
For a better idea of how Aveline operates in the more populated urban areas, and to see just a tiny tease of Aveline's stealthy activities in the bayou, you should totally check out the announcement trailer.
During 1765, Aveline stands directly in the path of Spanish forces seeking to overrun and take Louisiana while the rest of the coastal colonies are occupied with the American Revolution.

Games, reading experiences, adventures - the possibilities are endless for Wonderbook, and we can't wait to tell you more about the exciting things you can look forward to on this peripheral.
