Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD will be removed from Steam and soon, it won’t be accessible even by those who bought it. According to Valve, Ubisoft has requested that the title be unavailable on the platform starting September 1.
As of this Monday, the HD remaster of the title originally released for PlayStation Vita can no longer be purchased on Steam, at the request of Ubisoft. Also, if you have purchased the game, it will become inaccessible and unplayable from the beginning of September.
Many users are concerned and angry with Ubisoft’s decision, especially if this becomes a standard and other game companies also take the same action.
Although Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD is not considered one of the best in the series, there are several elements that made it stand out in the franchise, such as its narrative and main character. The remastered version had several new features, such as improved graphics, updated cinematics, and new missions that deepened the story of the assassin Aveline.
Assassin’s Creed Liberation was released in 2012 and is the fourth installment in the franchise, taking place during the events of Assassin’s Creed. It is set in Louisiana during the 18th century and features the Assassin Aveline de Grandpré, the series’ first protagonist, in her fight to stop the Templars from controlling New Orleans.
