Previously at the E3, Ubisoft had announced that the Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation Protagonist Aveline will be featured in the upcoming episode of the Assassin’s Creed franchise; Black Flag.
Staying true to the announcement Ubisoft has now rolled out more information about the missions relating to Aveline in a blog post.
First and the foremost, as conveyed earlier by Ubisoft, the character of Aveline is going to be a PlayStation exclusive content that has now been confirmed to span at least an hour of gameplay.
The lead writer of Black Flag Darby McDevitt has been tagged with Jill Murray the writer of Liberation for the creation of the Aveline short story. McDevitt shared that:
“It’s a way forward so Aveline is a bit older… It’s not directly related to the end of her story. If Assassin’s Creed 4 is like a novel, Aveline’s missions are like a short story.”
Remember Black Flag sets in a time after the story of Liberation ends.
Game Director Ashraf Ismail says that the hour long gameplay of Aveline will be broken into three exclusive missions each being there owing to the in game entertainment experiences development corporation Abstergo Entertainment’s Animus updates. McDevitt states:
“The present-day is set in Abstergo Entertainment – which is this fun, hip company to work for… at first. You are able to access the Aveline stuff because your coworkers are working on retrieving different genetic memories from all kinds of different people.”
