Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD Hits January

Without doubt the best Assassin’s Creed game on a handheld system has to be Liberation. Released last year along side Assassin’s Creed III, many were unable to experience the journey of Aveline de Grandpre because of the Vita’s low install base. Last month Ubisoft revealed a way to expand the game’s recognition as they announced it will be coming to the PS3, but lacked a proper date.

Today, Ubisoft has revealed the release date for the $20 downloadable game to be January 14, giving the current-gen system some life at the start of next year. It’s rather interesting to see this game come out so late considering Assassin’s Creed IV will be hitting stores next week and will even include a segment with Aveline. It’s much cheaper, but it begs the question whether this will be worth playing if the fourth mainline title turns out to be great.
