THE Ubisoft withdraws Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD from Steam. The reason? Starting September 1, the game will no longer be available even to purchasers of the title, with the developer ending Liberation’s online services.
The 2012 game, released for PlayStation Vita as an “add-on” to the story of Assassin’s Creed IIIreceived an HD version for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and pc. If you’ve already purchased the game, you only have until the first day of September to complete the story. Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD has been removed from Steam and can no longer be purchased by players.
If you own the remastered version of Assassin’s Creed IIIit will always be possible to access release, because only the separate version will not be available. Ubisoft’s decision is becoming quite controversial, as Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD was on sale on Steam recently. This is becoming a worrying practice for some gamers, as a game that does not have a multiplayer mode will not be accessible after the servers shut down.
