In addition to bringing 4K resolution and HDR support, the remaster of the 2012 game will include higher-resolution textures and improvements to gameplay and controller ergonomics. Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered will also include all of the game’s original post-launch content, such as the Benedict Arnold and Hidden Secrets missions, and the Tyranny of King Washington expansion.
Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation Remastered will similarly update the spinoff title that originally launched for PlayStation Vita in 2012, and on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2014. That is also included with the March 29 launch.
Both games are set in the United States in the mid-to-late 18th century, as the Assassin’s Creed story explored pre-Revolutionary War America in Boston (Assassin’s Creed 3) and New Orleans (Liberation). It was the first setting in the Western hemisphere for the then-5-year-old series, featuring a Native American protagonist in AC3 and an African-French woman as the hero of Liberation.
Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered and Assassin’s Creed 3: Liberation Remastered will be sold à la carte for PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One. For Odyssey season pass holders, they’re included at no additional charge.
Another Assassin’s Creed title is getting a remastered launch around the same time. Last month, Ubisoft said 2014’s Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered, an update of the last game in the series published for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, comes to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 20.
