Confirming previous rumors, Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed: Liberation HD (it dropped the III) will be coming digitally to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, with a release date slated for early 2014.

For this HD version of the game, you can expect a “complete graphical overhaul, re-mastered music and sound effects, a revamped gameplay experience, and new missions that dive deeper into Aveline’s story.”

If you’re unfamilar with the story of Aveline de Grandpré, here’s the story and setting overview:

The year is 1765. While the seeds of the American Revolution are being sewn in Boston and New York, Spanish forces in the South plot to seize control of Louisiana for the Templars, threatening to forever shift the balance of power in the New World. As Templars secretly take hold of the slave trade in New Orleans, Aveline de Grandpré, an assassin of mixed French and African heritage, stands ready to defend her people. She soon finds herself on an unforgettable journey that will take her from the crowded streets of New Orleans to voodoo-haunted swamps and ancient Mayan ruins. Whether eliminating her enemies with new assassination skills or luring them into cunning traps, Aveline strikes mortal fear into the hearts of those who would stand against freedom.
