Note the official title of this event: Maxim and Rock The Vote Celebrate the launch of Assassin’s Creed 3. By the title you can just tell this is not dedicated towards who matters most, the fans that buy and support this series. As soon as I set foot in front of the venue, I knew that this event was more a “show” than a celebration. Just look at the red carpet photos and you can tell whoever organized this event wanted it to have some kind of hit summer movie, red carpet premiere vibe. Sure it had Movie and TV stars, but what does that have to do with Assassin’s Creed 3? I understand if it would have been the voice actors, however it was exactly the opposite. Most of the attendees were just your typical Hollywood club hoppers who were there for the free booze. I am all about complimentary drinks and open bar, however this was just ridiculous. The event was totally private and you had to be invited.
More and a gallery of pics after the jump!!

Assassin’s Creed III is bringing gamers to the forefront of naval combat. As Connor, gamers will command a naval warship and lead his crew through tumultuous waters and enemy ships. Gamers will be able to use cannons against enemies, including devastating ammunition for optimal impact in what is the most detailed and immersive open-sea experience to date.
I am really looking forward to an Assassin’s Creed game again!!
Hit the jump for the Assassin’s Creed 3 Liberation trailer showcasing the unique use of the PS Vita’s functionality.

First, I will start off with saying that the PlayStation Vita will be getting a spin-off of Assassin’s Creed III, subtitled Liberation, which stars, for the first time in the series, a female lead role. Her name is Aveline, a woman with a French and African heritage. Since the game takes place in Louisiana, around 1765, the area will about to be handed over from the French to the Spanish, but an ultimately unsuccessful rebellion will try to stop it. Aveline, it seems, is part of this rebellion. Some standout weapons in Aveline’s arsenal include dueling pistols, a poison dart blow pipe, and a machete.
As for Assassin’s Creed III (PS3), we’ll be seeing four exclusive missions for that as well. On a related note, check after the jump for a gameplay trailer featuring Connor as a ship captain in the Caribbean (showing that there is some naval warfare; there is also a premiere trailer for Liberation). One last tidbit, according to Jack Tretton, if you link both PS3 and Vita games, you’ll unlock Connor’s tomahawk, a new character skin, a new multiplayer character (how much do you want to bet it will be Aveline?), and fully upgraded ammo pouches.
Now, with that out of the way, Ubisoft and Sony have once again teamed up for some bundles. There will be a PlayStation 3 bundled with Assassin’s Creed III, of course, but Assassin’s Creed III Liberation will also be bundled with a crystal white wifi PlayStation Vita (and a 4GB memory card). They will launch alongside the games on October 30th.
