Following its removal, Ubisoft has relisted Assassin's Creed Liberation on Steam.

Assassin's Creed Liberation recently suffered a wave of review bombing, largely due to Ubisoft's announcement of pulling online support for a number of their older games. Previously, Assassin's Creed Liberation was delisted on Steam and given a notice that read, "At the request of the publisher, Assassin's Creed Liberation HD is no longer available for sale on Steam."

The notice also indicated that the game "will not be accessible following September 1, 2022." 

This is in-line with Ubisoft's previous announcement that online support for a number of their games would be pulled come Sept. 1, leaving certain online features non-functional and rendering some games entirely unplayable.

Now, Assassin's Creed Liberation has returned to Steam with a new notice that confirms that the game will remain playable even after losing its online support. The new update also confirms that the game will once again be purchasable.

The listing's new notice now reads, "DLC for this product and online elements and features will become unavailable, as of Sept 1st, 2022. The base game will continue to be playable."

At the time of writing, numerous Ubisoft games still remain delisted on Steam. This largely affects games that are purely online-only such as Space Junkies, having been slapped with the notice: "At the request of the publisher, Space Junkies/Silent Hunter 5: Battle of the Atlantic is no longer available for sale on Steam."

Other games that are set to lose their online functionality come September include the original version of Assassin's Creed 2, Assassin's Creed 3, Brotherhood, Revelations, Rayman Legends, and the original Far Cry 3.
