What Changes in the AC 3 Remastered?
Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered was recently released on March 29, and as the name suggests, has presented players with better, enhanced version of the game. The most prominent changes are the differences in visuals, of course, but apart from this, fans of the game are also blessed with new gameplay features as well as new costumes.
According to Iban Nadal, Ubisoft’s Project Coordinator, one of his team’s goals was to bring Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered closer to the recent titles when it came to stealth options. It is important to note that brawl combat was greatly focused on in the original games, compared to sneaking and silent kills. However, in the remastered version, improvements have been made to Connor’s hidden blade, so even though brawl combat may not be emphasized, you won’t have any trouble taking down your enemies.
Graphical and visual updates
Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered features impressive upgrades in its graphics and also features denser crowds. In other words, the game runs at 4K in HDR and comes with enhanced lighting, texture and skin shading. For players who use PS4 and Xbox One, Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered runs at a glorious 1080p.
Before its release, Ubisoft had announced that Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered would come with gameplay changes, but they never gave any details. Now that it’s out, players can enjoy the changes in their full glory. As mentioned before, stealth is an aspect of the game that has been widely expanded as opposed to brawling combat. Players can now hay bales to lure and capture their enemies, whistle from brushes and perform double hidden blade assassinations from behind.
It’s not just stealth that has been improved. Players now have the option of free aiming with the bow, as they could in Assassin’s Creed 4. Initially, players only had the choice of a lock-on when it came to the bow, which meant precision was compromised. Moreover, the user interface of the game has also been modernized, including a mini-map that could prove useful for colorblind players. Main missions have also been enhanced in such a way that it is now easier to follow the story.
New costumes introduced
Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered also has new uniforms for players, costumes which were not available in the original game. Bayek, Alexios, and Aguilar’s outfits are available for players in the remastered version.
Moreover, the Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered Switch version, to be released on May 21, will also see certain changes. Players will have access to options such as motion control for aiming among others, HD rumble, etc. Additionally, the UI of the game will be tweaked in such a way that it will be fully compatible with touch screen and change for docked as well as mobile modes. Once released, the game will be available for purchase separately. It is also included with the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey season pass and Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation Remastered.
