Returning to the Animus once more with the release of Assassin's Creed Liberation HD. Originally an exclusive to the Playstation Vita, Liberation tells the story of Aveline, an Assassin from New Orleans during the same pre-Revolution time period as Assassin's Creed III. For one mission Aveline actually travels north to meet the other game's assassin, Connor. For the leap from handheld to console and PC, Ubisoft has upgraded the graphics and made other adjustments to the gameplay.
Unlike the earlier games in the franchise, where you played as Desmond in an Animus, Liberation has you playing an Abstergo Entertainment video game, powered by Animus technology. Abstergo Entertainment is the entertainment branch of the fictional Abstergo Industries, the modern-day Templars and enemy of the Assassins. Naturally the Templars involved with the game's production made sure to adjust and edit the memories of Aveline, spinning them to support the Templar Order. Do not worry though, as the original memories were hacked back in by the anti-Abstergo group Erudito. That will be covered more in the story section.
Is it worth revisiting the past to live Aveline's life, or is this story best forgotten to time? Let us find out.
