The remastered version of Assassin's Creed III that was announced last year as a season pass bonus for Assassin's Creed Odyssey now has a release date. Ubisoft confirmed today that the American Revolution-set title will launch standalone and as part of the aforementioned Odyssey season pass on March 29.
Originally developed by Ubisoft Montreal and released in 2012, the game has players taking the role of Connor, a Native American assassin. The remaster, meanwhile, is being worked on by Ubisoft Barcelona, which has implemented a new graphics engine, updated character models, higher resolution textures, and other improvements. The studio has also polished up some of the gameplay mechanics as well.
4K resolution and HDR support for PC, Xbox One X, and PlayStation 4 Pro systems were also confirmed. A handy comparison video by Ubisoft can be seen above, showcasing what players can expect to see on the newer version.
Along with the base game, this edition also comes with all of its single-player DLC, including "Benedict Arnold and Hidden Secrets missions" as well as the alternate reality "Tyranny of King Washington story arc." But the new edition doesn't stop there, as a remastered version of the original PlayStation Vita game Assassin's Creed III Liberation is also included.
As we mentioned previously, those who've picked up the Assassin's Creed Odyssey season pass will get to download Assassin's Creed III Remastered for free at launch on March 29. Meanwhile, pre-orders for the standalone version are slated to go up today for consoles, but a price was not mentioned by the company.
