Assassin’s Creed III Remastered Next Month

Ubisoft announces that Assassin’s Creed III Remastered will be released on March 29th for Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, offering an updated version of this stealth/action game that was first released way back in 2012. Word is this will be a standalone release, but those who own the Assassin's Creed Odyssey Season Pass already paid for this. Here's a trailer comparing the new version to the original, and here's word:
Today, Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed® III Remastered, developed by Ubisoft Barcelona, will launch on March 29 on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X and Windows PC. Assassin’s Creed® III Remastered can be pre-ordered, retail only for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as a stand-alone game for $39.99 and is also part of the Assassin’s Creed® Odyssey Season Pass.

The Remastered edition will feature 4K and HDR on PlayStation®4 Pro, Xbox One X and Windows PC, as well as higher resolution textures, a new graphics engine and several other graphical enhancements. Gameplay mechanics and ergonomics have also been improved.

Assassin’s Creed® III Remastered will include the full game, the single-player missions Benedict Arnold and Hidden Secrets, the Tyranny of King Washington and Assassin’s Creed® III Liberation Remastered, detailed below:

  • Assassin’s Creed® III Remastered: Players will embody Connor, a master Assassin born of the beauty and brutality of 18th-century America. As a bloody revolution draws near, your tribe is threatened by a powerful group seeking to crush the American Revolution and control the thirteen colonies. Shocked into action by the devastation of your village, you pledge your life to the cause of freedom and embark on a decades-long quest to achieve it.
  • Tyranny of King Washington: Explore an alternate history where one of America’s greatest heroes, George Washington, succumbs to the temptation of infinite power. The new King is born and his reign leaves no one untouched. Players must return freedom to the land by dethroning the tyrant our hero once called a friend.
  • Assassin’s Creed® III Liberation Remastered: Follow Aveline’s story as she battles Spanish forces in the American south to win freedom for her land and people. A woman of conviction, Aveline fights for freedom in 18th-century New Orleans, a city on the brink of a rebellion as the Spanish Empire imposes its new rule. Embark on an epic journey that will take her from the crowded streets of New Orleans to voodoo-haunted swamps and ancient Mayan ruins.

Same. I tested out the Google streaming service with AC:Odyssey, and was really enjoying the game. It's my first AC since I quit part-way through 2 when I got bored with it. I've been wanting to continue with the non-streaming version ever since. It's been on sale for 50% off, and I've considered grabbing it, but free is better and I'd prefer to keep my progress.


As an aside in case anyone was curious... The Google streaming service has a lot of potential. I just had to point Chrome to the website, click a button, and it immediately started up. Didn't have to download a single thing. The controls were surprisingly responsive. I was expecting some lag in that regard, and it honestly wasn't noticeable. Really the only negative (and it's a big one) was the graphics quality. It was advertised as being 1080p, and while the video stream maybe have technically been that resolution, it looked like heavily compressed 480p upscaled. It was incredibly blurry and lacking any detail. There were also no options to increase quality. (For reference, I have 100 Mb fiber internet.)

For me, in it's current state, game streaming could never replace good old-fashioned locally installed games until the video quality was improved, and I mean by a significant amount. But other than that, I was highly impressed by the technology and if the image quality were improved, I would seriously consider using it. There's something to be said about no longer having to spend tons of money upgrading high-end PC parts periodically.

I need to finish it so I can finish the story of the guy (which was sadly slightly ruined in Black Flag).

But I agree this was one of the worst in the series (story wise)

This was my first official dive in the AC world and probably the reason it ruined my attempt at just about any other. It came free with a Samsung SSD drive back when they first launched their EVO series. I was so hyped to try it out and was quite bored within the probably 3 hours I gave it, if even that.

I doubt they can remaster the fact that this one had the most potential & was wasted on possibly the worst player character ever made in the
'Creed worlds.
Connor was just such a pouty, bratty whineball....

...and what about the most confusing U.I. interface for crafting/ trades/ ships/ etc..etc..

This would need to be one hell of a RE-master for me to even get within 100 miles of playing it again.

I don't know if PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 could handle the stuff. Today's consoles can. What you're seeing are lighting effects, god-rays, and bloom. Light tends to brighten surfaces and unfortunately it was very brown and muddy during colonial times. Plus, I think for this trailer the devs chose the golden hour for most of the nature scenes. I think it is all a tad too gaudy for my tastes. Beyond that I think the upgrades look good especially 4K resolutions.

I hope they fixed up the crafting system. So annoying.
Do you have a single fact to back that up?

A good game in the series that begins the Kenway family trilogy. Recommend playing if you haven't. IMO Black Flag is the best of the three.

Ick. Why are they remastering the worst (or at least the one that made me leave the series) one?

I did not abandon the series (Black Flag is awesome by the way) but I agree about the "worst one".

AC3 is the only AC where the Desmond stuff was actually more fun and exciting than the historical parts. I hated the consolitis and Connor was a whiny bitch instead of a proud badass native American assassin.

It's definitely the classic AC that is least worthy of a remaster but I believe they intentionally avoided the Roman ones (Ezio trilogy) like AC2 because the next new gen AC after the current Odyssey will be set in Rome.

Exactly. Why? AC1/2/Broohood would be worth remastering. BF is still the best but doesn't really need it.

This one was really boring to me. Missions that are overly difficult and a story that makes you fall asleep. This one was one of the worst in the series. The characters were less than amazing also. I have tried to complete this game multiple times and just get so bored and never want to play it again. Black Flag remaster would of been the smart choice.
