PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Introducing Assassin’s Creed® Liberation HD, the striking chapter of the pre-American Revolution Assassin’s Creed saga which arrives for the first time on HD consoles and PC. With improved gameplay, deeper story and HD graphics makes Liberation an immersive and full Assassin’s Creed experience.

The year is 1765. As the events leading up to the American Revolution heat up in the north, Spanish forces plan to take control of Louisiana in the south – but they have yet to reckon with Aveline, a deadly Assassin who will use every weapon and ability in her arsenal on her quest for freedom. . Whether eliminating her enemies with her multiple assassinations technique or luring them into deadly traps using her tools, Aveline strikes mortal fear into the hearts of those who stand in her way.

As an Assassin, Aveline 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. She will play a pivotal role in the turbulent New Orleans revolution and the beginning of a new nation. As she fights for freedom, not for herself, but for those whose life and hopes have been squashed.

Great game, Played this originally on the Vita, Till I was hit by the save bug.

Uplay is the deal breaker for me unfortunately.

But heat added for a good price.

Same here. Well that and I have a few too many other games to get through already. I went a bit mad in the recent Steam sales unfortunately. X)

Hopefully it will be useful for someone though.

You and me both, Steam is good for making us buy games we don't want, Back on topic though, If and when this does become available for Steam, It will be an insta-buy for me.

It's on Steam already but unfortunately it costs 16 quid on there.

I'll probably get it when it shows up in a Steam sale though (which will hopefully be at some point in the next few months).

Even though it's on Steam, it might still need UPlay in order to play it, which is silly, but seems to be the way Ubisoft are taking things.

Buzz, you seem knowledgeable enough about this stuff -- is GfWL dead, or about to die? I tried the other night to play something I had bought in a sale, and I think after half an hour of struggling (the captcha thing is ****), I gave up. I heard it's on its way out, but what does that mean for games using/requiring it? Thanks.

They really need to cut that out. The honourable thing to do at this point would be to kill UPlay off and provide any existing users with Steam codes for the games in their UPlay library and then provide Steamworks DRM on their PC games in future.

As it stands, they seem intent on polishing that turd repeatedly in the vain hope that they one day people may start to like it.

It's on it's way out. It has been removed from a few games already but not others. E.g. I think it's no longer required for Arkham City but it is still required for Dark Souls.

EDIT: Yes that is the case. Fallout 3 is the one I really care about although if they kill that game off then there will be internet hell to pay.

Short answer : Im not 100% sure pal, I know most major games are now dropping GFWL i.e Arkham Origins, I guess its down to the developers to choose if they wish to re-do the games with Steam integration, I have a couple of games that use GFWL via Steam, But I'm on the Mac at the moment so can't load up one of them to see if they are working as intended.

Isn't the ME trilogy only available on Origin?

That would be good, but it will never happen EA had 2 or 3 attempts at a unified download manager before Origin eventually stuck to the wall. As far as UPlay is concerned, yes, it's awkward and not that great to use, but at least it's more stable than GFWL ever was.

Unfortunately publishers want to get every penny they can, which I guess means cutting out middlemen such as Steam, even though Valve have cornered the market for PC downloads.

Yes, but I'm pretty sure it was that game (bought a few things in the last couple of weeks) Not sure if the ME games used GfWL too (much like FC3 and Uplay). Might need to test a few games to check the theory. All I remember is that it really bugged me.

I'm 99% sure the ME trilogy is Origin, I have ME1 through Steam and don't think it is GFWL.

I'll boot up the Windows (shudder) and let you know.

The problem is that UPlay try to have it both ways. They sell their games via Steam and then force a 2nd form of DRM and overlay into the mix so it just gets bloated and confusing.

I really despise Origin but at least EA have stuck to their guns and have blocked out Valve completely with everything since BF3. If either company actually gave a toss about the consumer though then they would stop this nonsense and back the industry standard PC platform.

It has to be because ME3 was never released on Steam.

Maybe the Steambox might change things. If that device or SteamOS takes off then EA and UPlay could be ruling themselves out of a big share of the market.

I can see a free Linux-based Game-focused OS going down well in the developing world especially since Windows licenses don't usually come cheap and pirating Windows can be a pain these days.

Now you've got me thinking. Does that mean no Origin based games would use GFWL? Might need to go through the latest few games and check. Not that that's a problem, of course.

Dont like uplay as they only give you 30 days to download the game from purchase, after that you need to keep a backup of the game for reinstallation. With steam you can download, uninstall and reinstall whenever you want.

There is a statement to that effect on the checkout page but I've never had any problem re-downloading games - in fact there normally isn't any file to make a backup of. Perhaps it applies to those cases where the confirmation email contains a download link - this happens with Anno 2070 Complete which has links for the map and soundtrack - the game itself is installed via Uplay.

No, I have around 4 games in my UPlay Library and I can re-download them whenever I like.

I've pre-ordered Watch Dogs but only because I got it for £5 from the Play deal.

Why say this when the Steam version just launches uPlay ... so buying this version saves you one layer of DRM ... bonus to me!

Why not buy on uPlay so only 1 layer of DRM and just add it as a game to your Steam library if you like to use that to launch games? Cheaper games and win win ?

Be carefull with uplay, they have no support organisation behind the platform.

I got a sealed box copy of ac4 from Amazon, the code was already used. A week later ubisoft/uplay are still looking into it.

I got my Uplay account hacked last year and couldn't log in but was able to see the stolen account under a new assumed name logging up hours on my Far Cry 3 save ...to be fair after a bit of faffing about to get the UK phone number they instantly froze the account to investigate and after a few days handed it back to me ...at the point of save where I had left off and not the hackers save point .Very pleasantly dealt with tbh. Since then I've no qualms using Uplay

No, it really isn't

my first impressions of uplay have been positive. I got ac4 and blacklist and was able to download them together. I put games I'm playing or might play on my desktop anyway so this one library nonsense means nothing to me.
