Ubisoft has revealed more details regarding the upcoming Assassin's Creed III Remastered Switch version.

The company detailed which features are exclusive to the Switch version in a recent blog post on the official Assassin's Creed website. The post also contains a number of tidbits about upcoming Assassin's Creed Odyssey updates, as well as some more info about the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Assassin's Creed III Remastered. Here are the features Switch owners can look forward to if they pick up the game on May 21st:

  • HD Rumble - provides an additional layer of feedback during gameplay
  • Touch screen interface - enhances accessibility for game menus
  • Motion Control - ensures an intuitive controlled feeling during distant weapon aiming
  • Specific UI design - provides HUD adaptation for different display modes (Docked or Handheld gameplay)
The Switch version of Assassin's Creed III Remastered will also benefit from the tweaks Ubisoft is making to the game's moment-to-moment gameplay. The user interface has been redesigned to "better align with today's standards", according to Ubisoft, while the stealth gameplay and in-game economy have been tweaked to be more user-friendly. The PS4 and Xbox One versions will also be getting support for HDR and 4K scaling, as well as model improvements and physically-based rendering (PBR). The Switch version won't enjoy the same visual overhaul since the console isn't capable of outputting 4K resolution. Finally, there are some fun little inclusions like extra outfits based on later series protagonists including Bayek, Alexios and the movie's Aguilar.

The PS4 and Xbox One versions of Assassin's Creed III Remastered will be released on March 29th, while the Switch version is coming a little later on May 21st. The game is included as part of the Assassin's Creed Odyssey season pass, but you can also buy it as a standalone game.
