“[The game] will star a female assassin named Aveline, who is of mixed French/African heritage. It will be released alongside Assassin’s Creed III this fall, the story will take place in New Orleans (yes!) during the same time period as Assassin’s Creed III, it’ll have multiplayer, and won’t feature Desmond.
Aveline will meet Connor from Assassin’s Creed III, and her mentor will be an escaped slave, which combined with the location and time period could mean that “Liberation” probably refers to the liberation of American slaves.
The back-touch screen will let you pick pockets, and all of New Orleans will be explorable without any loading screens. It will also take players into Mexico. Oh, and it will feature alligators! ”
Sounds Like Assassin’s Creed Will Debut a New, Female Assassin’s Adventure On The Vita This Fall [ Kotaku ]
holy shit guys, look, look at her outfit, she isn’t even sexualized at all. I can’t believe it, and she’s a main character. A GIRL MAIN CHARACTER IN AN ACTION GAME THAT ISN’T THERE TO BE EYE CANDY.
I’m… I’m so proud. It’s catching on!!
This sounds AMAZING. How on earth is this not part of the main story? This is amazing and I genuinely hope our strapping young hero crosses her path in the main game.
SERIOUSLY??? THIS IS A FUCKING BADASS VISIBLY BLACK WOMAN WITH BRAIDS WHO IS THE MAIN CHARACTER OF THIS GAME???????
I need to buy a Vita. ASAP.
If they don’t fuck this up I will be very happy.
I’VE NEVER BEEN MORE HAPPY TO LIVE IN LOUISIANA THAN AT THIS MOMENT
