Assassin’s Creed 3 Is Getting a Remaster
Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed III is getting a remaster, which will be released at the same time as the new Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey. Considering that the game was released in 2012, it has been more than long enough for it to need a remaster. However, some people might be confused by the choice, seeing as how Assassin’s Creed III isn’t one of the more memorable installments in the action-adventure series for most players.
Why Assassin’s Creed 3?
For those who are prone to mistaking one Assassin’s Creed for another because of the sheer number of installments that have been released so far, Assassin’s Creed III was the one centered upon the Anglo-Kanien’kehá:k man named Ratonhnhaké:ton, who should be more familiar to a lot of people as Connor. Regardless, the game was set in what would become the United States at around the time of the American Revolution, which is a time that is important for a lot of players out there.
With that said, what is interesting about Assassin’s Creed III is that while it might not have been particularly memorable, it was a turning point for the action-adventure series as a whole. One excellent example is how Assassin’s Creed III laid the foundations of the series’s naval combat, which proved to be successful in Assassin’s Creed IV that Ubisoft is actually making a full-fledged game centered around it called Skull & Bones. Likewise, Assassin’s Creed III was the one that introduced hunting as well as other systems, which have made their presence felt in the installment’s successors.
Summed up, while Assassin’s Creed III might not be one of the most memorable installments in the action-adventure series, it deserves a remaster because of its innovations. For that matter, Assassin’s Creed III spent much more time in the wilderness compared to its predecessors’ focus on the hustle and bustle of big cities, which resulted in a distinctive feel that made for a refreshing contrast from said installments. Something that can be worth experiencing for particular players with particular preferences.
