Assassin's Creed: Liberation was a good game that got mostly overlooked and a bad rap due to its relation to the extremely mixed message that was Assassin's Creed III. Now Liberation, originally released only on PlayStation Vita, is getting a new lease on life with a high definition port to PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 next week.

Ubisoft released these screens showing off the changes (see gallery above). Liberation will sport updated models, textures, facial animations and AI as well as a few new missions.

Liberation introduced the lady of war Aveline de Grandpré. A southern lady who straddled the line between sophisticated socialite and bloodletting assassin. Set in New Orleans around the time of the end of the French and Indian War and leading into the American Revolution Liberation once again reduces all important historical events into a unseen power struggle between the Assassin's and Templar.

Assassin's Creed: Liberation will be releases in HD form on January 15 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Check out the original - non HD - trailer to the 2012 PlayStation Vita released below.
