This is taken straight from GAF but was sourced from somewhere else. This was apparently shown at Ubisofts Digital Day event:

As you can see, AC Liberation HD and AC Pirates are on that list.

I don't know if anyone remembers me saying this, but I said that an AC Liberation PS3 port would quiet possibly be coming soon. This would explain the HD in the title as the Vita is not actually HD. It also makes sense since they are putting in some Aveline for the Sony versions of Black Flag.

As for AC Pirates? Who knows. I am guessing a mobile game/app that ties in with AC4 Black Flag. Maybe even a new Vita title?

Well, GAF was right about AC4: Black Flag, and we do know that there are a number of AC projects in development. Plus, every AC game had some sort of a spin-off (AC1 - Chronicles and Bloodlines, AC2 - Discovery, AC3 - Liberation), would be weird if AC4 didn't have one.

Man I'd love to play Liberations on my PS3! Will be great just have another AC game to play. As for AC Pirates -- maybe another vita game? Or maybe the companion app is more than meets the eye.

Thanks for the information, Pacmanate. :)

Then, if AC: Liberation HD is a port for the main consoles, that's great news and more people will have the chance to play Aveline's story. I'd definitely recommend it. :D

Although, I do hope we will get another Vita title soon as well. Then, AC was actually the main reason I bought a Vita this year.

Well, there were glitches of course. The worst one caused the save file to become corrupted, which meant starting the whole game again. >_< I think there was a patch to fix this though. Human shields were difficult to implement too and not like ACIII at all. Another issue was not being able to perform a manoeuvre until the prompt for the buttons was visible on screen. Other things were relatively minor though, such as chests that were displayed on the map, but couldn't be found. This didn't affect getting 100% synchronization though. As for the story not being explained properly, I don't think there was anything really difficult to understand or anything that didn't really make sense. If there was anything, it was probably to create mystery and suspense for any possible future title. Most likely it was because they knew right from the beginning that they'd implement more of Aveline's story in ACIV. Then, I'm sure the Aveline missions in ACIV will definitely make it all a whole lot clearer.

Been thinking about AC Pirates and I don't think its a Vita title. I mean, if it was then wouldn't they announce it sooner? Its just under 2 months to release and there is no official statement about it.

AC Liberation HD may be a console game. Since AC Liberation and Aveline is a Playstation Exclusive i don't thinks it's going to be on Xbox and it may also be a Playstation Store game(sadly) that may be in the Playstation Store of PS4(I hope). As a trivia this does not have a number like AC3 Liberation(Vita).

And AC Pirates can be anything except a Vita game since Ubisoft Sofia(they did AC3L) is working on ACIVBF with everyone else.

I agree. Then, as you said first, it is more likely to be some sort of mobile game or app. I'm not disappointed though. ACIV looks great and will keep me busy for quite a while. :D Besides, it'll be one less thing to budget for. ;)

True. I will be getting a Vita sometime this month as well as a PS4 and AC4 in November so I am glad another AC vita title isnt coming out soon :P. I am hoping AC Liberation is on PS+ cause I also bought that.

This sounds like I am loaded, I am not :P I am just getting prepared :p

Unless sony pays up liberation HD will come to all platforms. Liberation was sony exclusive since it couldnt come to 3ds and microsoft doesent have a handheld.

Ac4 aveline missions is sony casue sony pays for exclusive missions as always.

Sony has no ownership over Aveline technicaly. But it's understandable people have got the feeling she is. Ubisoft will get their money either from sony paying, or from costumers from both consoles.... Even the pc should get it if it's basicaly an downloadable game.

As long as Sony is paying for Aveline as a Playstation Exclusive they 'own' her in a way but they don't own her like Ubisoft.

Well Ubisoft is a game company that sells games for money. So if they have an operturnity to gett more money they most likely will take it(i bett you would to) but what they don't think about is that they may gett even more if it is for all platforms. The problem is howe much money Sony pays for exclusives compared to having it on all platformes.

Well surely they should, they already have the textures in higher resolution. Theey will proapbly use the ac4 avline moden aswell.

And I guess they could throw a better shader onto it.

If you look at the liberation screenshots provided by ubisoft they are showing a resolution beyond what i think the vita can do and it looks alright already.

I think if ubisoft release a HD version for consoles they will do it right visually. They wouldnt want to tarnish the brand I don't think.

No one knows. To be honest I dont see why it wouldn't, both PS3 and PS4 use the PSN

I would assume that because they are possibly labeling it as AC III: Liberations HD, would probably nullify the exclusivity that Sony may have with that particular IP. I would love to play it on my 360, I did buy the Liberations Vita bundle just for AC, my biggest problem is not with the game in itself, but with the system, my hands cramp and go numb if I play it for more than 30min at a time.

Liberation HD is for PS3, 360, and PC and is digital only.


According to Ubisoft, Liberation HD offers “a complete graphical overhaul, re- mastered music and sound effects, a revamped gameplay experience, and new missions that dive deeper into Aveline’s story.”
Liberation HD tells the same story as the Vita installment, though certain optional cutscenes have been woven into the main story in order to make it clearer. The game is in development at Ubisoft Sofia -- the same team that worked on the Vita version -- and is set to hit Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC as a digital title in 2014.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IF3sezN7qI&amp;feature=c4-overview&amp;list=UUWIstp5bH4vsGQmz4mRzcZg

Pirates is a mobile game.


Aside from Liberation, Ubisoft also unveiled Assassin’s Creed Pirates, which is headed to “high-end smartphones and tablets” this fall. Pirates is developed by Ubisoft Paris and features real-time naval battles. Players will be able to manage their crew and search for treasure, and ships will also be customizable, with players able to purchase upgrades such as “more cannons for your deck, a new rudder or better sails.” Players will also be able to recruit new crew members and “explore a huge map featuring paradise islands, volcanic shores, mangroves and many more gorgeous landscapes.”
Pirates follows the story of Alonzo Batilla “as he rises through the ranks of the fearful pirates of the golden age.” Ubisoft promises “an adventure that will reveal the truth about La Buse’s mysterious treasure” as well as interactions with “the Templars and the Assassins as they struggle for supremacy and meet the famed figures of the era: Blackbeard, Bellamy and Hornigold.” Pirates will offer “dozens of side missions, treasures quests, perks and achievements” and “groundbreaking 3D visuals.”

It's not a completely new game, just a graphically enhanced version of the Wii U title.

BTW, someone wondered earlier if the HD version would include the Connor missions. At 1:02 you can see Connor on the left, so they are in the game.

Either way once again doesn't bother me! :D #PSTEAM

Wait come to think of it did the Wii U even get the ToKW DLC that came out? I remember it wasn't originally available at the time, so they said it would be awhile. So... we are 1.5 mos away fro AC4? What happen. Haha.

I wonder what the cost will be... I'm definitely interested it this though! How awesome to finally get a vita title on Console! (+More Connor!)

You could always make one and put a note in it 'Game is already on my console' ;)
