Assassin’s Creed III Remastered releases on 29 March, will include DLCs and Liberation

Assassin's Creed III Remastered - Connor & Aveline

It looks like we’re getting Assassin’s Creed III Remastered later next month, seven years after the game first debuted on last-gen consoles.

Coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One (where’s the Switch?) (Update: Switch now confirmed) on 29 March, the remaster packs a feature checklist touting items such as 4K HDR support, a new graphics engine, and supposedly improved gameplay mechanics and ergonomics.

Here’s a comparison trailer Ubisoft has put together:

Did that bring back any memories? For better or worse, Ubisoft replaced the disarmingly charming Ezio with a stiff-lipped Connor for Assassin’s Creed III. Fans also left behind the storied cities of Renaissance-era France for the roaring battlefields of 18th century America, following the series down new and different roads — or should we say, channels, since its sequel is the sea-faring, cannon-firing, AC IV: Black Flag.

Wisely, the publisher isn’t going to carve up this release into multiple editions. We’re getting the full package here, which means the “Benedict Arnold” and “Hidden Secrets” single-player missions; the Tyranny of King Washington DLC; and AC III: Liberation Remastered.

It’s a hefty package that should keep you busy till whatever comes next for the AC franchise. Unfortunately, no pricing has been revealed just yet — not even on Ubisoft’s SEA digital store.

Guess we’ll just have to make do with these images for now.
