Aveline de Grandpre of Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation will return to the Assassin’s Creed franchise in a series of missions found exclusively on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Today, Ubisoft shared some details.
Aveline’s missions make up the game’s hour of PlayStation-exclusive content and pick up “ways after” her story in Liberation concludes, according to lead writer Darby McDevitt.
“It’s a ways forward so Aveline is a bit older,” McDevitt said on the UbiBlog. “It’s not directly related to the end of her story. If Assassin’s Creed IV is like a novel, Aveline’s missions are like a short story.”
There are three missions dedicated to Aveline, made possible thanks to Abstergo’s Animus upgrades. The company has been digging through the memories of the Assassins in search of good product
“The present-day is set in Abstergo Entertainment – which is this fun, hip company to work for… at first,” McDevitt said. “You are able to access the Aveline stuff because your coworkers are working on retrieving different genetic memories from all kinds of different people.”
Ubisoft hints that “there’s something darker at play.”
