Assassin’s Creed III Remastered given March release date


Ubisoft has announced that it will release Assassin’s Creed III Remastered on March 29, 2019.

The remastered version of the 2012 action-adventure game will be released for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Ubisoft said: “The Remastered edition will feature 4K and HDR on PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One X and Windows PC, as well as higher resolution textures, a new graphics engine and several other graphical enhancements. Gameplay mechanics and ergonomics have also been improved.

“Assassin’s Creed III Remastered will include the full game, the single-player missions Benedict Arnold and Hidden Secrets, The Tyranny of King Washington and Assassin’s Creed III Liberation Remastered. [It] can be pre-ordered for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as a stand-alone game starting today, and is also part of the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Season Pass.”

Set in the American Revolution, Assassin’s Creed III follows the fortunes of master assassin Connor. The Tyranny of King Washington, meanwhile, offers an intriguing alternate reality “Where one of America’s greatest heroes, George Washington, succumbs to the temptation of infinite power. The new King is born and his reign leaves no one untouched. Players must return freedom to the land by dethroning the tyrant our hero once called a friend.”

And Ubisoft describes Assassin’s Creed III Liberation thus: “Follow Aveline’s story as she battles Spanish forces in the American south to win freedom for her land and people. A woman of conviction, Aveline fights for freedom in 18th century New Orleans, a city on the brink of a rebellion as the Spanish Empire imposes its new rule. Embark on an epic journey that will take her from the crowded streets of New Orleans to voodoo-haunted swamps and ancient Mayan ruins.”
