Assassin's Creed 3 gets stunning new-gen facelift you can check out free

A fresh coat of paint for this 2012 classic

We’re just one month away from ‘world premiere’ mania. Yes, it’s almost summer showcase season. Can you smell the hype and anticipation in the air?

As it stands, Geoff Keighley will kick things off with Summer Game Fest on 7 June, followed by the Xbox Games Showcase and [Redacted] Direct on 9 June, with the Ubisoft Forward to round us out on 10 June.

Just this morning, Nintendo confirmed it would also be holding a June showcase although a date remains unconfirmed.

That means we’re just waiting on news from PlayStation. Last year, Sony held its PlayStation Showcase in the latter half of May.

Nothing has yet been announced but a repeat of that certainly isn’t out of the realm of possibility.

The Ubisoft Forward should bring us some fresh updates on the Assassin’s Creed franchise, including a full Codename Red reveal, believed to be titled Assassin’s Creed Shadows.

Taking players to Feudal Japan, the game is supposedly dropping in the latter half of the year.

Take a look at Assassin’s Creed Codename Red below.

With just over one month to go until the showcase, you may be looking for something to satisfy your Assassin’s Creed content craving in the meantime.

Allow me then to direct your attention towards this incredible Assassin’s Creed 3 remaster mod.

This mod is the work of YouTuber GAMER JP who’s certainly breathed new life into a beloved Assassin’s Creed classic.

With vastly improved graphical fidelity and added ray tracing, this remaster looks more like a remake - it’s that impressive. You can take a look at the project in action below.

What’s even more exciting is that you too can emulate this project. Just hop into the video’s description to find a link to GAMER JP’s mod preset, available to download for free.

It’s a worthwhile endeavour whilst we await Codename Red, and such community efforts deserve to be celebrated.
