The remastered Assassin’s Creed 3, announced back in September as part of the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey season pass of premium content, will be released March 29, Ubisoft announced Wednesday.

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.
