June 3, 2012Written by Zak Islam

Before its alleged reveal for E3 on Monday, details for Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation for the PlayStation Vita has been outed via the latest issue of Game Informer.

A NeoGAF user posted the details from the GI preview, which reveals there’ll be a female protagonist, as well as the following details:

  • Releases on the same day as AC3 (October 30th)
  • Location is New Orleans
  • Female assassin named Aveline of mixed heritage
  • Looks like same time period as AC3
  • Ubisoft Sofia is developing
  • Takes place between 1765-1780 in the period between the end of the French and Indian war
  • One of the bullet points is that it’s “true AC gameplay”
  • Will not connect to Desmond
  • Will have “multiplayer specifically tailored to the Vita experience”
  • “The game has been released as a propaganda tool by Abstergo, who want players to experience a gray area of the Assassin/Templar conflict as an assassin rather than a Templar”
  • Aveline’s mentor is an escaped slave named Agate, leader of the assassins in New Orleans
  • Wildlife like alligators “wait on the banks of the swamp or hide beneath murky waters”
  • Liberation will also take players “across the Gulf into Mexico”

To add credence to the existence of a Vita version of Assassin’s Creed 3, the game was recently listed by retailer Zavvi.

Ubisoft’s E3 press conference commences on Monday at 3PM PST.
