Assassin's Creed III bundles headed to PS3 and Vita this fall
Sony plans to release both a PlayStation 3 bundle with Assassin's Creed III and a PlayStation Vita pack with the recently announced Assassin's Creed III: Liberation on October 30.
The Vita bundle will include a "crystal white" version of the handheld (Wi-fi only, not 3G), the game disc for Liberation, and a 4GB memory card. For PS3, the box will contain a 320GB console and one controller, a copy of Assassin's Creed III, and unspecified exclusive DLC.
“When you link [the games], you will unlock Connor’s tomahawk, an exclusive character skin, a multiplayer character, and a complete upgrade of ammunition pouches,” said Jack Tretton, SCEA’s chief executive.
Assassin's Creed III: Liberation takes place in 18th-century Louisiana and stars Aveline, the first-ever female assassin in the series. She must confront the Spanish forces that threaten to invade while the rest of the coastal colonies are battling in the American Revolution. Aveline descends from African and French lineage and uses weapons such as a machete, poison-dart blowpipe, and dueling pistols.
