According to the latest video in which Ubisoft explain the new features in Assassins Creed 3 remaster, one of the aims was to give players more stealth options with the addition of double assassination and improvements to hidden blade.

Assassin's Creed 3 Remastered Edition is just around the corner, and in their March Monthly update video, Ubisoft offered a few details about the gameplay changes and improvements along with some new features that players can expect to see in the game.

According to Ubisoft's Project Coordinator Iban Nadal, one of the goals was to bring Assassin's Creed 3 remaster closer to the recent titles in terms of stealth options.

The original game emphasized brawl combat over sneaking and silent kills, but the improvements to Connor's hidden blade should offer more choices for enemy takedowns.

One of the additions is the well-known double assassination which is now easier to perform and players will also be able to whistle and attract enemies to bushes or hay carts. 

Senior Engine Programmer Owen Angell says that they wanted to make Assassin's Creed 3 remaster overall a bigger game that can match the quality of Odyssey and Origins. 

To achieve this, the aim was to make the game feel more alive by adding more crowd and improving skin shading to make the characters look more expressive during cutscenes.

As for the Nintendo Switch version that will be coming a bit later, Ubisoft reworked the entire UI to make it suitable for the console's touch screen.

And last but not least, Ubisoft also added new outfits that weren't included in the original game. Bayek's and Alexios' outfits will be available to players along with Aguilar's outfit from the Assassin's Creed film.

Ubisoft earlier confirmed that PC, Xbox One X and PS4 Pro users will enjoy Assassin's Creed 3 remaster in 4K resolution along with a new lighting system and better character models.

Assassin's Creed 3 Remastered Edition is part of Odyssey's Season Pass but you can also get it as a standalone purchase. The release date is set for 29 March 2019 for PC, Xbox One and PS4 and end of May 2019 for Switch.
