Assassin's Creed Liberation HD confirmed for PC and consoles

Word of Assassin's Creed Liberation HD leaked last week, but we had no idea what it was beyond wildly guessing it was an HD revamp of Vita spin-off Well gee gosh golly, that's exactly what it is, Ubisoft announced today, coming for download on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Ubisoft says Liberation HD has "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 was released alongside Assassin's Creed 3 in October 2012 as a handheld spin-off with a new story and main character, Aveline. We weren't particularly thrilled with it, though part of that was due to sloppy use of Vita's touch interfaces and camera.

Assassin's Creed Liberation HD is due a downloadable release in "early 2014."
