Ubisoft has finally revealed when we can expect Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered after teasing an unspecified launch in March.
The company announced the revamped title will be available for purchase on March 29, giving fans just under two months to wait before setting foot in 18th-century Colonial America once again.
For those new to the game or in need of a recap, players take control of Connor Kenway, the half-English, half-Mohawk son of a Templar. The terrain is unlike the bustling cities, cramped backstreets and clustered rooftops the series is known for; Assassin’s Creed 3 sees you explore populated wilderness punctuated by colonial settlements, Native American villages, forests, rivers and cliffs.
While the game received lukewarm reviews and is rarely considered by critics to be among the franchise’s best, it was the first to introduce the iconic naval combat Ubisoft later perfected in Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag.
The upcoming remastered version of the game will be accompanied by its spin-off, Liberation, and a DLC where George Washington tries to become a king. What’s not to love?
Those who own a season pass will snag it all by default, but it can also be bought separately by anyone who wants the standalone game.
Ubisoft released a comparison trailer for Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered which shows a significant difference in the game’s visuals, including a dramatic change in colour scheme. It certainly looks better, but the warm tone is pretty full-on – check it out in the trailer below.
