Out with the old, in with the new we guess. With the launch of Assassin's Creed 3 Remastered, Ubisoft have removed all traces of the original from Steam and Uplay, paving the way to the newly polished experience of the American Revolution.

Having launched back in 2012, Assassin's Creed 3 is half a year short of its seventh birthday so we guess the remaster is symbolic as well - lucky number seven.

Assassin's Creed 3 is also the last game in the franchise that features Desmond Miles, the assassin with whom the entire franchise started.

As for the changes, Ubisoft lined up quite a few for Assassin's Creed 3 Remastered, starting with including the DLC packs like The Tyranny of King Washington and even the Liberation HD pack, which was eventually ported from Vita.

In terms of gameplay changes, the minimap is the first notable change and it now shows the direction the enemies are facing. It also shows quick getaway options, be they hiding places or places to run through before you get to them.

Stealth enthusiasts will be glad to know that guards can be attracted by whistling and the blades are made default assassination method. Dispatching two guards at a time - why of course, kind sir. 

Assassin's Creed 3 Remastered also brings a homestead upgrade, which will let you craft the weapons you had to go out and buy., provided you've got the blueprints, of course.

Cosmetics isn't lacking either and if you've grown too attached to Alexios' style, you'll find Alexios, Bayek and Arno Dorian's outfits available. 

So, Spartan-clad native American prancing around the US while fighting the evil Englishmen. What's not to like, eh?

Unfortunately, the original edition of Connor's storyline won't be available anymore, so you might want to take mental notes of the things that have changed.

On the other hand, there are plenty of things that haven't changed, such as the audio synchronisation and Assassin's Creed 3 Remastered seems to be suffering from this just as much as the original did.
