The remaster will include new enhancements that consist of higher-resolution textures, as well as support for 4K and HDR. Our vision was to take advantage of newer technology to bring this classic game up to match the quality of the current Assassin's Creed games.
With increased model improvements and physically based rendering (PBR), Assassin's Creed III Remastered displays more visually accurate images using real-world light and material properties that make the world feel more alive!
In addition to the technical upgrades, the remaster will also include new gameplay improvements, thanks to community feedback shared from the release of the original game.
The game UI (user interface) has undergone a big makeover to better align with today's standards (such as including color-blind settings to help spot enemies in the Mini Map) to deliver a more enjoyable player experience!
The in-game economy has been revamped to be easily visible and offer added benefits, such as additional weapons for crafting.
New stealth features are also included in the Remaster, as well as the ability to hide in bushes, call enemies over with a whistle, and perform double assassinations, creating a better balance between action and stealth.
And, of course, we can't forget the new Legacy Outfits that will pay homage to other notable Assassins, such as Alexios, Bayek and Aguilar!
Assassin's Creed III Remastered will also release on Nintendo Switch system!
This release will include improved ergonomics and gameplay mechanics, and will also make use of exclusive Nintendo Switch features, such as:
HD Rumble – provides an additional layer of feedback during gameplay
Touch screen interface – enhances accessibility for game menus
Motion Control – ensures an intuitive controlled feeling during distant weapon aiming
Specific UI design – provides HUD adaptation for different display modes (Docked or Handheld gameplay)
Assassin's Creed III Remastered will be available on PlayStation®4 system, Xbox One, and PC on March 29, 2019, and on Nintendo SwitchTM system on May 21, 2019.
Additionally, Assassin's Creed III Remastered is included in the Assassin's Creed Odyssey Season Pass, and is available as a stand-alone game.
This was where I started losing complete interest in the series.
While I'm not going to judge the remaster completely based off a compressed video, I have to wonder why they've gone and made everything a shade of brown.
Cool; I had been considering a replay of this. It's secretly the best Assassin's Creed game (though I haven't played any of them beyond AC4) Instead, I'll wait until this goes on sale cheap and pick it up then.
Was hoping for a bigger upgrade though, watching that trailer. What's with the piss filter? Liberation's inclusion is cool too; never played that one.
