We’ve known for some time that Ubisoft had planned to release the remastered version of Assassin’s Creed III to gamers in March 2019 – but today we finally have full confirmation of when that time will be, and exactly what will be included in the remaster.
Coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC – with 4K and HDR present for Xbox One X and PS4 Pro players – on March 29th 2019, Assassin’s Creed III Remastered comes about as part of the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Season Pass, with those wishing to check out the remastered goodies getting access to the full game, the single-player missions of Benedict Arnold and Hidden Secrets, The Tyranny of King Washington and Assassin’s Creed III Liberation Remastered.
Now, in our eyes the best way of getting involved with all this is by purchasing the Odyssey Season Pass, giving reason to not just play one of the very best AC titles in Odyssey, but also witnessing the glory of the American Revolution once more.
The Season Pass will set you back £32.79 and as well as giving access to the ACIII Remaster, brings new narratives for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey too. Alternatively, and this will happily suit those not interested in witnessing Ubisoft’s latest adventure, Assassin’s Creed III Remastered can also be picked up as a standalone purchase. It’ll be up for pre-order today.
The Xbox Store or PlayStation Store should be visited no matter which way you decide to run, with the Remaster of ACIII delivering not just those previously mentioned One X and PS4 Pro enhancements, but higher resolution textures, a new graphics engine and several other graphical enhancements alongside gameplay mechanics and ergonomics which have also been improved.
But what will you get for your money? Well, Assassin’s Creed III Remastered includes all of the following:
- 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.
