Check out this interview with Richard Farrese, writer of Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, to see lots of gameplay involving the PS Vita’s touchscreen and touchpad controls. The screen can be used to paddle a canoe and rear pad brushes let you sneakily pick the pockets of people around town.
We also get to see the new chained kills system, where Aveline builds up a metre by being stealthy, before pausing the action, allowing you to tap multiple targets to take out in spectacular fashion. We’ve not been excited for a Vita game in quite some time, but this is certainly looking like the best we’ve seen since Drake. See the video after the jump.
