How much better does Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD look?

Console vs. Vita comparisons shown off.

Ubisoft has released a set of images comparing the original PlayStation Vita version of Assassin's Creed: Liberation with its upcoming PC and console port.

Liberation HD is set to arrive as a download for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on 15th January. It'll cost £15.99, although will be discounted for Assassin's Creed 4 season pass holders.

As seen in the comparison images below, character models have seen a big improvement:


Lighting, too, has also been reworked:


Environments and textures are also far more detailed:


Audio, AI and facial animations have also been brushed up and 15 new missions have been added, while some touchscreen puzzles have been removed.

"It isn't as good at the core Assassin's Creed loop of picking an icon on the map and then getting diverted by entertaining side content on the way there," Eurogamer's Tom Bramwell wrote in his review of the Vita original. "When it does that, Liberation lives up to its name and feels like a worthy spin-off."
