Assassin's Creed III Liberation for PS Vita - box artAssassin's Creed III for PS3 - box art

The time has come, PlayStation Assassins! We are very pleased to announce that both Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed III Liberation will be available tomorrow on PS3 and PS Vita, respectively.

To celebrate, we’d first like to draw your attention to our Assassin’s Creed III launch trailer, which you can watch below!


As an exciting bonus for our PlayStation Assassins, PS3 players will get day-one access to four exclusive missions at no extra cost. The bonus missions cover one of the most dastardly betrayals in American history: the treachery of Benedict Arnold! We don’t want to give too much away, but fortunately we have a trailer that goes over a few key details…


Starting tomorrow afternoon with the PlayStation Store update, PS3 owners will be able to download the four PlayStation-exclusive missions (note: you may have to play up to a certain progress point in the main game in order to actually access them). To redeem the content, access the main menu, select Extras and then Additional content, press Triangle and redeem the voucher code found in the PS3 game case.

If you own both ACIII and ACIII Liberation, you’re in for even more bonus content in the form of bonus Cross Content! For going all-in on ACIII and ACIII Liberation, you’ll instantly earn an exclusive ACIII wallpaper for your PS3! You’ll unlock even more bonuses in Liberation, including:

  • Aveline can use Connor’s trademark Tomahawk
  • Special multiplayer character to give you an edge on PS Vita
  • Instant upgrade to Aveline’s ammunition pouches
  • An entire mission playable as Connor!

To unlock the Cross-Connectivity content on your PS Vita, follow these steps:

  1. Turn on both systems.
  2. Start the game.
  3. In the Main Menu, choose “Extras.”
  4. Tap on “Connect to PS3™ system.”
  5. Wait for the consoles to communicate.
  6. You will be notified that your content is available to use.

It’s a great time to be a PlayStation Assassin! So what are you still doing here? Get out there and start taking advantage of all of the extra bonus content you get to enjoy just for choosing Sony!

So I probably missed this somewhere but….If I bought the game on PSN already, do I get the exclusive PS3 content? If so, how do I access this content.

Thank You….Can Not Wait :)

    If you pre-ordered the game off PSN, yes you’ll receive the Benedict Arnold missions :) When you go to download the game, it should automatically download if you hit “download all”, otherwise it should be in your download list.

My copy of Liberation actually came in the mail TODAY! Was pleasantly surprised. Haven’t started playing yet… I won’t get banned or something for playing it before release date will I? =/

I am with question #1. I have purchased the AC3 PS3/PSVita bundle, do we access the extra content like the physical ver of the game? How do we enter the code for the bonus missions? Could this be clarified?

Thanks so much, really hope we do not miss out on the extra content from going digital.

So why don’t we have an Assassin in Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale? They’ve been so nice to Playstation recently, and Connor or Aveline would fit right in.

Two questions.

1) Will I still get the exclusive content if I bought Assassin’s Creed 3 on the PlayStation Store?
2) Will Assassin’s Creed 3 be available on the PlayStation Store at midnight?

For the people that keep asking, there will NOT be a midnight release for the game. They stated in this very post that it will be available for download tomorrow after the store has updated, which is usually in the afternoon or early evening.

As far as people downloading it and still getting the DLC, I’m fairly certain the DLC will be included in the actual download, or it will include a voucher for it in some form. Not that I actually know that, but I’d assume they wouldn’t screw over the PSN store purchases by forgetting the DLC.

In theory, I can pick up my Vita Liberation bundle @ Gamestop’s midnight launch but I’ll wait until daylight. So excited to play both games. Thanks for the instructions on how to link them, I needed that!

BTW, even my stodgy non-gamer co-worker has heard about ACIII so Ubi must be doing something right!
I guess Ubi knows how excited American gamers are for these new Assassins.

Why do people like these sucky games with super clunky combat and horrible story, again? Play one Ass Creed game and you have played them all. Oh and these games are all the same, and suffer from the Clod of Dooty effect since both series are milked to death.

moo moooooooo mooo mooooooooooooooo

Hurricane Sandy is one bad….. I might not be able to download this or get the games I want from Gamestop tomorrow, all because of her.

Nice to to know how to obtain the bonus content for both AC3 and AC3:L.

@neuropunk: everyone is entitled to their opinion, but not everyone has the good manners to refrain from denigrating other people’s tastes.

I know you love Dark Souls. I do, too. Just beat Knight Artorias last night & he was a tough S.O.B. But I also love the stealth options in the AC series. I have all of them, including the PSP one. I disagree with you about the controls & the story.

+ JimmyHACK on October 29th, 2012 at 3:14 pm said:

it’s 12 gig, you can buy/download (preload) game now. CAN NOT PLAY YET! It unlocks early am so no waiting for some late store update. People wanting to know about missions for digital, they will be in extras menu, no code.

thanks but what is preload


31

+ kcurlsjr on October 29th, 2012 at 3:20 pm said:

The description of AC3 on the EU Playstation store is a bit more descriptive than that of the US one (maybe because they are rocking the new updated layout?). Across the pond they seem to be getting a pre order bonus mission called “A Dangerous Secret”. Can those of us that pre-ordered on PSN here in the US also expect this bonus? Or is this just another thing to add to the growing list of discrepancies between the two stores?


32

+ JimmyHACK on October 29th, 2012 at 3:27 pm said:

jerryshood, if you buy the preorder now, you can download the game now, it wont let you launch it until unlock time though. this way you dont have to wait and download it later.


33

+ Winscar_Shinobi on October 29th, 2012 at 3:27 pm said:

Wow the US doesn’t get the option to preload the game.

And I has a hurricane so I just gotta hope my power stays on for me to download it. All local gamestops and most stores are closed until Thursday.

Also: CAN’T WAIT.


34

+ JimmyHACK on October 29th, 2012 at 3:29 pm said:

kcurlsjr, dangerous secret is the 4 missions for ps3, any ps3 version anyone buys you will get these missions.


35

+ JimmyHACK on October 29th, 2012 at 3:32 pm said:

uh oh, Winscar_Shinobi may be right, not 100% on the US preload option, I know EU can


36

+ jerryshood on October 29th, 2012 at 3:32 pm said:

Winscar_Shinobi so you get that option with the new psn store that’s pretty cool can wait for the update in us thanks!

Dear GABRIEL GRAZIANI

Could you clarify these questions, please?:

1. Can you predownload the game from PSN right now?

2. Does the game unlock at midnight. –The post says the Free DLC MISSIONS will be available tomorrow with the store update but does NOT specify the game AC:III itself, which one can find on the store and purchase now.

I don’t think you are correct.

Is there a midnight release? oh well, i guess i’ll wait til 8 o’clock tomorrow to download and install it. so I i’ll be playing sometime around midnight.

+ AgentX on October 29th, 2012 at 3:53 pm said:

I’ve been looking forward to both of these games for a long time!

Although I’ve got both games preordered, I’m unsure if I’ll actually be able to obtain them tomorrow, due to the hurricane that’s bearing down on us now. As soon as the weather clears up, though, I’ll make my way to the store to take them home. Hopefully the game exceeds everyone’s expectations.


41

+ Kneppy18 on October 29th, 2012 at 4:00 pm said:

Let’s stop feeding the troll. I, for one, am slightly disappointed in how PS is handling the pre-order. Why is EU aloud to pre-load when east coast US has to wait until probably close to 8pm to even start downloading? At least West Coasters will have their store updated at a more reasonable local time. I have off tomorrow due the the hurricane, but I have to be up very early Wednesday to go to work so I won’t be able to do anything with it until Wednesday evening…

+ Lash_Whipwreck on October 29th, 2012 at 4:02 pm said:

i know people have asked this question and like them i want an answer , will the game be out at midnight for people.

“Why is EU aloud to pre-load when east coast US has to wait until probably close to 8pm to even start downloading?”

As far as I know, it is because they have the new store. It sounds like pre-ordering games for the PSN through the new store allows for users to pre-install their purchases with an unlock being released at midnight by the company rather than Sony.


44

+ Astro411 on October 29th, 2012 at 4:12 pm said:

The game will NOT be available at midnight on PSN, and the option to download the game early is only for the EU and it has nothing to do with the new store, pre-download is available for all pre-orders on EU store and has been since the pre-orders were put up.

It’s just us in the US that don’t get this treatment but hopefully it’ll be a standard in the future.

+ lisatsunami on October 29th, 2012 at 4:16 pm said:

I hope those of you in Hurricane Sandy’s path can at least take some comfort in playing these great games. I bought the Vita external battery & an UPS power supply for times like this (well, we don’t get hurricanes on the West coast but for other things). Gamers gotta game.
