After months and months of rumors and hints, Ubisoft has finally confirmed the suspicions of its Assassin’s Creed fans. An Assassin’s Creed 3 remaster will be coming to the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC on March 29, and will be launching with every piece of DLC content that came out for it.
Assassin’s Creed 3 was originally released in 2012, and was the first Assassin’s Creed game to not focus on Ezio Auditore since Assassin’s Creed 2 launched in 2009. It tells the story of Connor Kenway, a young boy of mixed English and Sioux heritage, as he attempts to hunt down and kill the people he believes are responsible for the death of his mother. Along the way he will become caught up in the American Revolution, meeting various famous figures like George Washington, Israel Putnam, John Adams, and more.
Along with the base game, the Assassin’s Creed 3 remaster will be adding in the two special missions, Benedict Arnold and Hidden Secrets, along with the episodic DLC “The Tyranny of King Washington”, as George Washington proclaims himself king of America and embarks on a new reign of tyranny. Also included will be a remastering of Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation, which starred the series’s first female playable character, Aveline de Grandpré.
The game itself has also gone through a number of changes. In addition to 4K and HDR textures and lighting, and a higher resolution, a new graphics engine has also been added, and various bits of gameplay and ergonomics have also been improved to make the game truly feel like a remastered title.
If you’d run out of things to do in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey already, picking up the Assassin’s Creed 3 Remaster version will definitely help to tide you over until Ubisoft releases the next Assassin’s Creed game. Once again, you can get it on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC on March 29.
