The new Assassin’s Creed III punches quite a lot new and thus the game has now a higher system requirement. So let’s find out what all specifications you’ll need to run the game smoothly on your potato PC.

What’s new in Assassin’s Creed III Remastered?

It looks like the game has quite a lot of new things rather than just normal graphics upgrade. The gameplay mechanism looks a lot better and engaging. The firing arrow is now free aim rather than the original lock on system. Players can now whistle from the bushes and there are more stealth options as well.

Ubisoft has also added double silent assassinations and it’s really fun to perform. The minimap has been updated as well. In the graphics department, the crowd density is now a bit higher and everything looks more natural. Finally, the 4K HDR support makes the game more like a 2019 game.
