Why We’re Surprisingly Excited for Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered
Time hasn’t been especially kind to Assassin’s Creed III, the trilogy-ending capper to the first era of Assassin’s Creed games. Though it received many favorable reviews at its launch, the issues players had with it have lingered.
So it came as a surprise to many, including the crew of Tech’s weekly PlayStation show Beyond, that Assassin’s creed III would be remastered as part of the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey season pass. But with the promise of “higher resolution textures, a new graphics engine, other graphical enhancements and improved gameplay mechanics,” the Beyond crew in the clip above discusses why they’re actually intrigued and interested in returning to AC3 and seeing what’s changed.
Of course, that’s not all that’s coming as part of Odyssey’s season pass — find out the full breakdown of the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey post-launch content plan, and take a look at what’s to come in the gallery below.
