Ubisoft detailed via its blog exactly what can be expected when the Assassin’s Creed III Remaster is released at the end of the month. The improvements will include more than just graphical and texture improvements, but some gameplay adjustments as well.
Some of the gameplay changes include a makeover to the UI to align better with modern standards and allowing for colour blind settings. The game will also see some changes to the stealth and combat mechanics, making it possible to whistle from bushes to attract a guard’s attention and making it easier to pull off double assassinations. Assassin’s Creed III Remaster will also include the Legacy Outfits, which will allow you to play dress up with Connor as Bayek or Alexios from the more recent Assassin’s Creed entries. This is all on top of the obvious graphical improvements we can expect from a remaster such as 4K and HDR support.
The Nintendo Switch version of the game will also see a few additional changes such as touch screen support for the in-game menus. Now if only they can remaster Ratonhnhaké꞉ton’s personality.
Assassin’s Creed III Remaster is expected to release on 29 March on PS4, Xbox One and PC and on 21 May on the Nintendo Switch. It is also included in the Season Pass of Assassin’s Creed Oddyssey.
