68w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani has posted up some fresh Gamescom 2012 video trailers today showcasing Naval Battles and AC3 Liberation in Assassin's Creed III for the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: To celebrate Gamescom in Cologne, Germany this week, we're giving fans an in-depth look at the breathtaking naval combat in Assassin's Creed III! Submerge yourself in our latest trailer below.
Let's get in to what you just saw in that trailer, because there are a ton of little gameplay nuggets hidden inside it.
First off, check out the attention to detail on the crew and their activities on the deck of Connor's ship, the Aquila... we really wanted to convey the buzzing hive of energy that a ship this size requires just to keep it moving, let alone enter combat.
And when the weather gets rough, Connor may need to put his deft Assassin acrobatics to use, climbing around the rigging and ensuring the sails are properly maintained and operational.
Enemy ships aren't the only threat you'll face along the Eastern shores of North America. Fortunately, you'll have deck guns capable of rotating to remove stationary threats like mines, or even some of the smaller ships that threaten the Aquila.
79w ago - Ubisoft Community Developer Gabriel Graziani has officially revealed Assassin's Creed III Liberation for PS Vita including some video footage fresh from E3 2012 today!
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.
Aveline is a uniquely effective assassin, employing tactics from her mixed French and African lineage and using weapons like the machete, poison-dart blowpipe and dueling pistols.
