Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered Drops Next Month

Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered Drops Next Month

Who wants to slice and dice from the trees once more?

It’s been six years since Connor brought the American Stabbing Revolution to our screens, and if you’d like to relive that experience with a fresh coat of paint, you won’t have to wait long. Ubisoft announced earlier this morning that the remastered AC3 will land on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, complete with all DLC and a remastered version of Assassin’s Creed: Liberation, on March 29.

The biggest improvement apparent in the comparison video below is really the lighting system: some scenes look like the colour has been completely re-graded, although it’s really just a nice graphical bump across the board. Models have been touched up as well, from what I can tell.

No word yet on local pricing for AC3: Remastered, but I’ll update this post after we get the local release from Ubi’s Australian team. If you’ve already got the season pass for Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, however, you’ll be getting AC3 Remastered for free.

Update: Ubi’s Australian team has confirmed via release that the AC3 remaster will be $59.99 by itself.


    • Please look forward to the ‘Climber’ trophy, for climbing 8848 metres in total. I remember having to rubber-band my Vita for that one…

      • I remember doing that. It was running into a wall, climbing a few steps, and sliding down counted towards the trophy, right?

        I wonder if they’ve also ported over that multi-player strategy game that was bundled with Liberation?

    • I would be interested in your reasoning and thoughts behind this.

      I too was left feeling a bit ‘meh’ after my 1st play through of this game when it originally came out (even though those last few missions were very satisfying)

      But when the WiiU came out and i was looking for a more ‘realistic’ looking game other then monster hunter and Mario games to see what this new bad boy could do, i picked up AC3 for like $25 bucks, played it again and really started the appreciate the character of Connor and took my time soaking in the history and surroundings of the time line, along with the importance of the time line. Connor was and is a flawed character, but all in all became a really good story telling experience.

      • It’s the worst AC game. That’s reasoning enough, and Connor being so unlikeable is a big part of that. Honestly the best part of AC3 for me was reading the book Forsaken about his father, and grandfather from AC4 (which was a masterpiece).

    • Was going to say….. I hope it’s fun and all, and I may check it out as I never got around to playing 3.

      But, wasn’t AC3 pretty much considered a bit of a flop?

      • It was hyped as being a massive leap for the series and didn’t really deliver on that promise. It sold well enough though, and in hindsight is better than some that came after (e.g. AC Unity).

  • This will be good fun. I felt this game was a bit over looked at the time. I was so excited for the rumoured switch release though.

  • Hm. My least favourite AC title. Remaster could be nice… it did seem to struggle on the 360 where I played it.

    But Christ, there’s not much to recommend it… the characters were awful, the Forrest Gumping through American history was awful, the busywork was awful, the optional objectives were awful, the over-use of chases and eavesdropping was awful… I really hope the remaster comes with some re-balancing and Quality of Life improvements, not just upscaled textures.

    • From my recollections they also dumbed down the climbing controls so you often ended up sticking to a wall while you were just trying to run down a street.

    • Or how every single one of the large viewpoint trees in the wilderness were identical and had to be climbed in one specific fashion…

  • This was the down fall of the AC series for me. Unity might have had its issues but the story in this one is uninteresting, the characters unlikeable, the side quests and unlocking fast travel annoying, navigating through forests was a pain. Definitely don’t think anyone was asking for this.
