Creative Director Of Assassin's Creed III Explains How He Would Fix The Game

Earlier today, Ubisoft announced that part of the Assassin's Creed Odyssey season pass will include Assassin's Creed III remastered for the current generation. In addition to graphical tweaks, Ubisoft has indicated that they would be improving the gameplay based on feedback, but did not indicate how.

The game's creative director, Alex Hutchinson, has his own thoughts on what he would change on Twitter.

Didn’t Desmond die in Assassin’s Creed 3?

NecrumOddBoy2102d ago

I thought it was Revelations. I just Wiki'd it and I think it was in AC3 actually, but this series is more convoluted that Kingdom Hearts in it's over arching story. I have no clue what is going on from the metagame perspective

KuroMadoshi2102d ago

Plz put your efforts elsewhere, AC 3 is the worst entry in the series.

IamTylerDurden12102d ago (Edited 2102d ago )

AC 3 had one of the best settings. Boston, NY, and the American frontier were all fantastically detailed with great atmosphere. There were many progressive ideas as well. Not everything was executed properly, but i admire their ambition.

good_sk8er2102d ago

I loved AC3 when I first played it. I played through it a second time later and didn't enjoy it nearly as much, but man the setting and time period were fantastic!

playnice2101d ago

It had it's flaws but damn I agree the setting was super well done, the graphics, the scale, soundtrack, intro to wilderness parkour, hunting, ship battles, it paved the way to AC4.

frostlatch2102d ago

By deleting all source code and trace of the game from your servers because we dont give a fuck about an AC3 remake?

starchild2102d ago

Who's we? You don't speak for anyone but yourself. I actually thought AC3 was one of the best games in the series.

They did the OG GTA Trilogy dirty.

badz149406d ago

yup, with the amount of money they are making with GTAV, and the amount of time they've had with both the games and the hardware, what they chose to do with the Remasters was criminal!

just_looken406d ago

So true but the worst is the borderline death of the mod community thanks to the remaster and take 2 in general.

They are remastering gtaiv so now any mod for that game is under fire and soon a worse version of that game will get tossed out.

If you head to youtube there is a year later videos on the gta trilogy they now removed stuff like physics to get the game to work but its still trying to be as good as those mobile ports.

Here is one good video to watch

Chard406d ago

I recall the remaster of IV got cancelled in order to prioritise VI and fixing the trilogy. But I'm assuming this is as good as the 'definitive' trilogy will get through official support - I wonder how much more could be done by the mod community. The original III and VC have reverse engineered ports which are probably the best current way to play them.

just_looken405d ago


Groove street is working on a unannounced project still they are going to do something for gtaiv anniversary based on a rumor.

Do not forget gta trilogy was the 3rd best selling game under the take 2 umbrella that year.

Demetrius406d ago

Ain it tho smh and they still won’t overhaul them smh I just purchased the original trilogy for my ps2 slim the cds were even still new posters in the case with the manuals lol I still play them for hours I won’t even look at gameplay of the defective edition bullsh**

Chard406d ago

are they still patching it?

just_looken406d ago

grove street stopped patching few months in and is now working on a unannounced title while a inhouse team in rockstar made the game playable so all missions can be finished and got that team got it back on steam store.

As my comment uptop states there are videos showing documentation and though it on steam the game is not near the quality of the mobile ports it came from. The ps2 era copies just destroy it overall.

Profchaos405d ago (Edited 405d ago )

Yet it still sold over 10 million. I'm guilty of buying it twice ps5 and switch. And it still crashes at the end of specific missions like the casino heist in GTA SA when playing at 30 fps or the mission in vc where you and Lance race the boat to the dealer.

Despite that it's still better than it was but could be better.

They knew these games had huge demand they should of done each game properly seven if that meant developing each title individually over a year or two rather than all three at once and or a full remake rather than a remaster with generic ue4 assets and effects slotted in

Yet despite all of this I'm extremely hopeful that after 6 drops we get a HD trilogy on modern system whatever that may be ps6 switch 3 and Xbox series next

I thought the GTA trilogy was great. The changes to the controls and combat made it big improvement over the originals.

just_looken406d ago

If you had a pc you would know silent patch along with a few other mods to make said controller your using and mods to make said pc to work would give you a far better experience and for way less money.

There were gta san andreas mods that blew away what grove street did.

The weapon wheel by the way was from a mod.

This video alone is a middle finger to grove street

Number1TailzFan406d ago

Yea San Andreas had a good multiplayer mod just a short bit after it came out which was really popular.

just_looken406d ago (Edited 406d ago )

That mp mod then after there what we all battle royal now was great same with the just cause mp.

isarai405d ago

I think some improvements were cool, but overall it's a MUCH lesser experience than playing the originals. The aiming is garbage in the trilogy, and even the "classic" mode isn't done right, especially how it locks into NPCs in cars, crap has gotten me killed so many times in the remasters. And un the original GTASA you could click R3 to switch between locked in and free aim in the fly, in the remasters you have to change it in the options menu to go from locked in to free aim

autobotdan406d ago

Tales or Symphonia Remastered

gold_drake406d ago

the silent hill collection was pretty ... odd.
not because they fucked it up, but damn. some choices were made ha.

just_looken406d ago

A classic were the publisher made a billion that year but could not afford to produce another patch do too hosting fees.

cammers1995405d ago

PS3 got the final patch. 360 did not. Some say the final patch worked, some say it didn't. I honestly think it depends on console model of the PS3 and other factors. Something was really weird with how those games played. Sh2 ran fine for most, sh3 depended on PS3 model.

just_looken404d ago


Over time sony tweaked the hardware and removed some stuff off the board like the psp.

Pre 2008 games need og ps3 systems with old firmware for flawless play for instance.
