When you revisit Assassin’s Creed 3, don’t forget to go home

, | News

If you purchase the Season Pass for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, you have copies of Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered and Assassin’s Creed Liberation Remastered coming. According to the newly updated support page, these are the full games with all story DLC and upgraded graphics. All the buzzwords are here. There’s 4K, HDR, new light rendering, denser crowd tech, and various other improvements.

What’s important is the remaster may get people to play Assassin’s Creed 3 that missed it the first time around. It might even entice some players that abandoned it halfway through to come back. If you’re one of those folks, ignore the hullabaloo over the main character’s supposed blandness or the criticism for the odd extended prologue. Instead, make sure to play the optional homestead missions. They’re a delightful set of quests that task the player with building a small slice of colonial America. They’re a great mix of gameplay, and the story gives the normally dour Conner a chance to show off some humor. Most importantly, the founding and nurturing of the homestead perfectly captures the essence of the setting.
