I’m one of the few that enjoy Assassin’s Creed III. I consider it one of my favorite Assassin’s Creed titles sans Origins / Odyssey. For a frame of reference, I disliked II and Brotherhood. So it was quite a pleasant surprise when I heard that Ubisoft had announced the Assassin’s Creed III Remaster, but does it live up to my memories of seven years ago? Does it fix issues that plagued the game initially?
Today, Ubisoft announced Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: India and Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia, the final episodes of the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles trilogy, will be available for download respectively on January 12 and February 9, 2016, on PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue was a pretty quiet release for Ubisoft. The PC version only came out in March, four months after its Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 counterparts released. It wasn’t given much of a marketing push, but it turns out it’s a highly enjoyable game that continues the mythos of Assassin’s Creed in interesting ways, ways you shouldn’t miss. It’s a wonderful blend of the best mechanics of both Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, and it wouldn’t be far off to refer to this as a “Black Flag 2” of sorts.
