Assassin’s Creed III Gets Some Necessary Updates
The Assassin’s Creed III remaster drops in little more than a fortnight, and Ubisoft has released a video giving us a look at how the controversial gameplay of the original has been improved for this release.
In this month’s dev update, members of the team confirm several gameplay changes that bring the game more in line with the franchise’s modern entries. To start, firing arrows now utilizes a free aim mechanic as opposed to the lock-on system of the original Assassin’s Creed games. A couple stealth mechanics from later entries join the game as well, including luring enemies to your location by whistling, and double silent assassinations.
Of course, no remaster is complete without graphical upgrades, some of which were shown off in a comparison trailer a little while back. More details were revealed in today’s update including the increase in crowd density, as well as improved skin shading and more natural looking foliage.
