Assassin’s Creed III Remastered is one of the bonuses coming with the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey season pass, and it changes more than just the original game’s graphics.
Not much is known about the remaster yet. It doesn’t even have a set release date, with fans only knowing that it will be out sometime next year as part of the Odyssey season pass and available to buy standalone at a later date. Now, though, an update to Ubisoft’s support page has given us a few more clues as to the extent of the remaster.
In addition to upgrading to 4K resolution with HDR on Xbox One X, PS4 Pro, and PC (1080p resolution on the standard PS4 and Xbox One), the game will receive a new lighting rendering system, higher resolution textures, and new character models. The game will also feature denser crowds, more detailed environments, and redone VFX.
However, the biggest news hinted at in these notes is that some parts of the gameplay will be changed as well.
“Based on player’s [sic] feedback, gameplay mechanics has also been improved, with several features being revamped or tweaked,” Ubisoft’s notes read.
The notes don’t go into any more detail than that, but it seems Ubisoft will be looking at fan feedback specifically when making these changes. We’ll have to wait until the game is a little closer to release to find out what these actually are, however.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is out now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
