The Drop: New PlayStation Releases for January 14th, 2014

The Drop

As Templar forces move to control the slave trade in 1760’s New Orleans, a courageous woman of French and African descent fights for freedom with a cunning set of skills. Aveline de Grandpre returns to the stage of history once again in Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD, launching for PS3 this week.

Originally launched on PS Vita, Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD presents Aveline’s tale in a whole new light. It includes massive visual upgrades and a seemingly endless list of tweaks and optimizations. This chapter in the Assassin’s Creed series features the same rich blend of stealth elements and combat. By donning different disguises, Aveline can traverse the environment and use the reactions of other characters to her advantage, be it the gown of a noble lady or the iconic garb of the Assassin.

But Aveline isn’t the only familiar face leaping onto a new PlayStation platform this week; Barry Steakfries lands on PS Vita in the fan-favorite Age of Zombies. Stride through time and fight hordes of undead in this charming and addictive adventure. May or may not include a zombie t-rex.

For this week’s full list of new games, head below. And enjoy the Drop!

The Raven looks very interesting, it will be hard not to purchase it. I must stay strong though and not purchase anything not on supersale.

Liberation on Vita is pretty good. You guys should at least check out the demo!

Thank you for finally doing a real The Drop again, the last few weeks of blog communication to fans have come across as very lazy.

No demo of Toukiden the age of demons this week : (

#2 that was a fun

Ok, I will happily try the demo for AC Liberation HD. I have the original Vita crystal white bundle, so I’ll stick to that until a good sale comes along. Though depending on the tweaks and updates I might try it later. I like AC IV’s battle system (just got it half off from a deal of the day last week) and it’s really fun so far. Except for some optional stealth sequences so far, though I’m only on sequence 3 I think. Had work so I didn’t get to play too much this weekend.

Age of Zombies is it going to have trophy support? Or is it just an import from the psp?

PainOfSarrow said:

January 12th, 11:35 am

Feralbat said:

NerdyJustin said:

January 12th, 11:37 am

poodude said:

SweetReLeaf said:

January 12th, 11:57 am

I pre ordered AC:L & was told to return to the store at 12:01, January 14. See I’m confused because normally you have to wait for said items until the store update but this is a late night update or I misread?

Doc_Tury said:

January 12th, 12:08 pm

Every game that you pre order in the PSN store it’s available at midnight pacific time! ENJOY!


January 12th, 12:10 pm

IzoGray said:

January 12th, 12:35 pm

I recommend AC Liberation to anyone who likes boring stories, awful dialogue, boring costume system and in general- the worst Assassin’s Creed game to ever be released (excluding the PSP one)

So yeah..wholeheartedly recommend it if you like bad games.

ZeroSection said:

January 12th, 12:36 pm

Any price on Assassins Creed 3: Liberation HD? I’m hoping like sub 30-40 bucks.


January 12th, 12:42 pm

Nothing really impressive about the Drop. Anyway still games are coming, but not for current-gen =\.

ThiagoArroadie said:

January 12th, 12:49 pm

Death8u4u said:

January 12th, 12:54 pm

ZeroSection, the price is $20 for Liberation on PS3.


January 12th, 1:04 pm

ZeroSection said:

January 12th, 1:09 pm

Well its good to know its cheap. Kinda sucks its not on PS4, but I can deal with it.


January 12th, 1:10 pm

Mando44646 said:

January 12th, 1:18 pm

Meh nothing for Vita or PS4 still. I’ll probably pick up Liberation for only $20. I enjoyed it on Vita a while ago

The Vita version of Age Of Zombies looks like fun.

dkarlowicz10 said:

January 12th, 2:00 pm

Age of Zombies looks fun. You guys should have gameplay videos. I had to go to youtube to look it up. Also, I go on the blog every day, and this is the first I had heard of Age of Zombies. You guys need to advertise the PS Vita games better.

Stranger_Eddie said:

January 12th, 2:04 pm

Age of Zombies & Doodle Devil for Vita…

2 Android games with price like US$1,00…

Let PS Vita owners begins to complain AGAIN for the third “new year consecutive” about real Vita games only apperaring after MONTHS!

Excited for Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD on Tuesday, never played it on Vita as I hoped for an HD release and we finally got one.

fifthcore said:

January 12th, 3:19 pm

Any chance of Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD on PS4 in the future? Maybe via Playstation Now?

duke301 said:

January 12th, 3:35 pm

I’m all over AC: Liberation, I pre-ordered at $15. Now I’m actually sorry I payed for it on Vita. I also will check out Double Dragon. I have never seen the movie (I never even knew there was a movie), but it is one of my favorite games from back in the day. Please bring more PS1 and PS2 Classics!

Rezznak said:

January 12th, 3:44 pm
