Ever since the first screenshots for Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation for the PS Vita made their way online, speculation has abounded about the fact that the game’s main character Aveline can be seen wearing a number of different outfits. It seemed likely that that the developers at Ubisoft Sofia were working on implementing some sort of disguise system for the character. It was an approach that seemed especially sensible in light of the character’s very nature as a mixed-race female assassin with an aristocratic father living in New Orleans in the late 1700s. Aveline would be a person used to living and moving between worlds so it would only have seemed right that the gameplay of Liberation reflected this as well. Now with new details about what the developers at Sofia are dubbing the persona system coming to light, it seems that is exactly what is happening. Take a look at description and trailer focused on the various roles Aveline will be able to play over the course AC3:L below.
You had me at poison dart-shooting umbrella. You really did. I have to admit being able to play an Assassin’s Creed game with a secret identity of sorts is an intriguing notion. Especially since as the series story moves closer and closer to present day, such an alternate identity would become increasing necessary for those who wished to move within society at large. I think speculation on what a wholly modern day set AC game would play like has long been happening and I would be willing to bet any such game would include a similar system to the persona’s of AC3:L. I suppose we must just find out one day. Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation is due out for PlayStation Vita on October 30.
