Monday, 18th February 2013 04:23 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation has won the Writer’s Guild of America’s 2013 Outstanding Achievement in Videogame Writing award.

PlayerAttack reports Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation scooped the award out from under its home console rivals, also leaving fellow portable effort Uncharted: Golden Abyss in the cold.

007 Legends, Assassin’s Creed 3, Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two and Halo 4 were also nominated for the Outstanding Achievement in Videogame Writing award.

Liberation’s script was written by Canadian author Jill Murray and Ubisoft Montreal’s Richard Farrese. It was developed by Ubisoft Sofia, and is the first in the series to feature a female protagonist.

The Writer’s Guild of America gives a gaming category award annually; a win is considered prestigious but the selection process has raised controversy and some publishers abstain. The Assassin’s Creed franchise has been a regular winner.
