You were probably going to purchase both Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation anyway – but Ubisoft has announced an added incentive to affirm your decision. If you link up both games, you’ll be able to play a converging mission as Connor on the PlayStation Vita. Furthermore, you’ll unlock the console protagonist’s Tomahawk for use in Liberation, as well as a character skin and an increased ammunition pouch.

The trailer below shows a little more of the handheld title in action, and details some of the game's optional touch controls. The ‘Mark and Kill’ mechanic is especially noteworthy, as it allows you to pause the title and select a slew of adversaries for Aveline to automatically target, assuming you’ve fully replenished an on-screen meter.

Both Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation are set to release next week. Who's excited?
