Assassin's Creed III Remastered launches on Xbox and PC

Assassin's Creed III is a controversial game because a lot of gamers love it, and a lot of gamers equally hate it. Luckily, there's a remastered version out now which hopes to fix the original's technical limitations. When Assassin's Creed IIl launched in 2012, it garnered great reviews, but the clunky controls and other issues were criticized. With Assassin's Creed III Remastered, Ubisoft hopes to fix all of these problems for a polished experience.

If you take a look at the trailer, you can see that the visuals have received a massive overhaul. While the textures are great, the lighting still could use a lot of work.

Assassin's Creed III takes place in the American Colonies during 1775. It's a time of civil unrest and political upheaval. As a Native American assassin fights to protect his land and his people, he will ignite the flames of a young nation's revolution.

Assassin's Creed III Remastered features the following improvements over the base game which launched on Xbox 360 all those years ago.

  • Assassin's Creed III: Liberation and all original add-ons, including "The Tyranny of King Washington."
  • Enhanced graphics, now featuring 4K resolution, new character models, polished environment rendering, and more.
  • Gameplay mechanics have been revamped as well, improving your experience and your immersion.
