Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD May Become Unplayable on Steam

Originally released on PlayStation Vita as a spin-off title, 2012 action-adventure game Assassin's Creed III: Liberation from developer/publisher Ubisoft was fully remade as Liberation HD for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 later in January 2014.

As a follow-up to an early message, Ubisoft announced to shut down servers for over a dozen of their older games in coming months. Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD among these may become unplayable on PC via Steam even for its owners.


AC Liberation will no longer be playable on PC starting from September 1, 2022, according to its official Steam listing page. Ubisoft previously stated that select titles will be removed from sales but apparently, they won't be accessible as well.

Ubisoft has listed Assassin's Creed III: Liberation and a few other titles for server closure not too long ago. Players were informed that access to DLC and functionality to online services will soon be lost for select games from September 1, 2022.


Twitter user @Nors3 noticed that Steam will soon be removing access to play Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD.



Liberation HD was remastered and included in Assassin's Creed III Remastered bundle but it will be playable. Ubisoft previously suggested that remastered version of games may have no effect on getting original ones decommissioned for PC.

Assassin's Creed III: Liberation HD players losing access to DLCs and online functionality is surely frustrating, yet understandable. However, Ubisoft apparently trying to revoke all access to even play it is a simple example of anti-consumerism.
