Meet the protagonist, Aveline de Grandpré, an African-French Assassin, daughter of a noble French merchant and his slave-turned-wife. She lived a very privileged life as the daughter of a nobleman, due to her mother becoming a plaçee, freeing herself from slavery. Born into a family torn apart by slavery, Aveline chases the memories of her lost mother. Shortly after her biological mother’s disappearance, she was recruited into the Assassin Brotherhood. And there she met her mentor, Agate.

Aveline cannot tolerate the injustice and cruelty being inflicted on her fellow African descendants. She simply refuses to sit on the sidelines.

Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation features weapons from the previous installments, with new ones introduced such as sugar cane machete, pistols, blowpipes, and grenades. It also introduces a new mechanic in the form of chain-kill, where you can take out multiple opponents at once, or can be used when you are simply in the need of quick escape. You will never be short on options in eliminating foes, but as always, choose wisely, as stealth is a key element to the game.
Aveline will take you into her multifaceted world living as a noble lady, a slave, and a notorious assassin. Yes, she can kick ass in all her finery!

This is the distinguishing feature in this game – Aveline’s three personas. Each persona comes with benefits and drawbacks as well as its own notoriety meter to let you know how much the guards will be watching you.
