Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD Will No Longer Be Accessible on Steam This Fall

Another Assassin’s Creed title will not be available to play on Steam, with Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD not being accessible this fall.

Shutting down gaming servers and services is a common occurrence in the industry. When certain systems are no longer supported, companies must move to the latest to stay up-to-date with the latest technology. Ubisoft also closes online services for certain games, many of which are older titles released on some older systems. This includes games from the company’s flagship IP Assassin’s Creed, which will be shutting down those services in September. A game that was not in the initial announcement, but is also affected, is Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD.

Originally released as Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation, it was a spin-off that took place alongside the events of Assassin’s Creed 3, where it followed the adventures of Aveline de Grandpre in her conflict against the Templars. This was originally released on the PS Vita in 2012 before being remade on the PS3, PC and Xbox 360 as Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD. This game would then be ported to current-gen systems when included as part of Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered in 2019. It’s no surprise that with Ubisoft shutting down services for certain older releases, this would also have an impact on this one. game.

Fans have noticed that the Steam page for Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD is currently removed, meaning fans will no longer be able to purchase this old version. However, there is a notice stating that this Assassin’s Creed game will no longer be available around the same date that Ubisoft will shut down its online services. Ultimately, this means that players who previously purchased and currently own the game will no longer be able to play this old version.

Ubisoft stated in its official service deactivation for certain Assassin’s Creed games that the remastered releases will not be affected by this shutdown. The statement also notes that this shutdown should focus on newer or more popular titles that Ubisoft currently supports.

Much of the response has been negative, as has the announcement of the shutdown of Ubisoft’s other gaming services. This can be seen from some recent reviews on Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD’s Steam page, with many expressing their frustration at buying the game but no longer being able to play it by September. Players will soon have only one option to play Assassin’s Creed Liberation, which is through the Assassin’s Creed 3 remaster.

Assassin’s Creed Liberation Remastered is available as part of Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered on PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
