Assassin's Creed Odyssey post-launch plans detailed, Assassin's Creed III Remastered confirmed

"Gee whizz, I wish I could spend more time playing as Connor and not newer, more interesting characters", said literally no-one ever, and yet here we are with Ubisoft remastering Assassin's Creed III so it can be bundled in with the Assassin's Creed Odyssey Season Pass. This will include a copy of both Assassin's Creed III Remastered and Assassin's Creed Liberation, and two additional DLC story arcs for the game, as well as a whole series of free content for all players, including free quests.

Assassin's Creed III Remastered will also be sold as a standalone title, and comes equipped with spruced up 4K visuals for PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, plus improved 'gameplay mechanics and ergonomics'. This was the case with Far Cry 3 Classic Edition when Far Cry 5 was released. Regular in-game events like the ones debuted in Assassin's Creed Origins will return, and they'll sit alongside more general updates. Players will learn more about the backstory of the Assassins and why they choose to fight from the shadows. In a surprising saga filled with twists and turns, players will get even closer to Greek mythology and the First Civilization.

Today, the publisher released a new, brief TV spot for AC Odyssey that you'll likely begin seeing in the coming weeks if you still happen to, you know, watch TV.

Free DLC will also be released, information on it is provided below. The press release mentions New Game Plus, for example, and "new challenges".

Assassin's Creed Odyssey will have players become a legendary Spartan. Additionally, all players will have access to recurring free in-game events that introduce challenging enemies and daily quests.

These will be available following the game's launch and include The Lost Tales of Greece, the Discovery Tour, a New Game Plus mode, mythical creatures to battle against, and daily/weekly contracts.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey hits PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on October 5. Those who own the Collectors and Ultimate Editions will be granted three days early, starting October 2.
