Assassin's Creed 3 Remastered

A remastered version of Assassin’s Creed III was released earlier in the year, both as a solo release and as part of the season pass to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. While it ran well enough, the game also suffered from a particularly strange problem many noticed that made character models look strange, if not outright creepy. Now, though, it seems Ubisoft has addressed the issue with a new patch, along with some other small fixes.

The game shipped originally with updated graphics and character models, but it also came with a new lighting system that contrasted poorly against the new models, leading to cutscenes where characters looked doll-like, and metal surfaces and hair were made too shiny and bright. The newest update, 1.03, fixes and tones the lighting down to do away with most of the creepy faces and overly shiny surfaces. It also has some minor fixes for the PC version, like addressing some problems with ultrawide support and fullscreen mode. You can see the patch notes below.

Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with a Switch version due out May 21st. It includes a remastered version of Assassin’s Creed 3, all of its DLC, and its spin-off title, Liberation. Once you get done revisiting the series’ past, take a look at some of the speculation on the franchise’s future.

PATCH NOTES:

  • Adjusted lighting in cutscenes to improve how character faces, skin and hair look throughout the game.
  • [PC] Improved support for ultra-wide resolutions.
  • [PC] Addressed a black screen issue when using fullscreen mode.
  • [PC] Addressed a problem with button mapping configurations when connecting an Xbox One controller through Bluetooth.
