Over the years since its inception in 2007, Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed series has supplied us with some absolute bangers.
At least for the most part, Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed series has been a leading franchise of the stealth/action genre. In recent years, especially during the ‘RPG era post-Assassin’s Creed Origins, there has been more of an emphasis on action over stealth which has divided fans.

Throughout the series with some entries being bigger than others, players have had fun engaging in its open world. Up until Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, those open worlds were pretty standard maps filled with NPCs to assassinate, missions to take on as well as other side activities.
With the arrival of Assassin’s Creed III in 2012, this was arguably the game that changed the open world map of the series for better or worse. Set during the 1700s, the third numbered entry starred Connor Kenway and was set during The American Revolutionary War. While I loved this game, Assassin’s Creed III was criticised by some fans for having a boring protagonist. At the end of the day, we all have our own personal preferences.
That being said, Assassin’s Creed III can also perhaps be credited for being a benchmark for the series of what was to come. Firstly, it featured fun naval combat, something that would become a key feature in 2013’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Secondly, its open world set within the regions of Boston and New York was not only gorgeous, but it also had a quite in-depth hunting and crafting system, at least for its time.
However, it’s now been over ten years since the release of Assassin’s Creed III and while it’s a game that still holds up today, I wouldn't be opposed to a modern-day remake powered by Unreal Engine 5. If that also sounds like your kind of Boston Tea Party, then the YouTube channel Remastered Gaming has you covered.
Uploaded to the channel is a concept for Assassin’s Creed III on Unreal’s most recent engine and it looks stunning. It features Connor showcasing his parkour skills as well as some lethal assassinations of some unsuspecting NPCs that appear to be just chilling on a beach next to a warm fire. I wouldn't expect Ubisoft to remake Assassin’s Creed III anytime soon, but this concept certainly gives us a taste of what could be.
Assassin’s Creed III is out now on PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo.
