By Jon Sutton on March 21st, 2019 at 05:47pm - original article from game-debate

Everyone's 10th-favourite Assassin's Creed game is being given the remaster treatment this month. Assassin's Creed III: Remastered updates the colonial America stab-em-up for a modern audience, moving to a new graphics engine, enhancing the visuals, improving gameplay mechanics and more. AC3 may be seven years but don't expect running the remastered version to be an easy task though...

If you watch the comparison trailer below, you'll probably find yourself a little confused at just how demanding this ACIII remaster is considering the relatively minor improvement to visuals. You are not alone.

The original Assassin's Creed 3 recommended a Radeon HD 5770 or GeForce GTX 260, so this is some leap. That the GTX 970 and Radeon RX Vega 56 can't run this at 4K/60 has us simultaneously worried about performance and simultaneously wondering whether the visual improvement is greater than we're giving Ubisoft credit for.

AC's sludgy controls mean it's usually a strong candidate for running at 30fps if you need to, but 60fps is obviously the ideal. For that, you're going to required a 4GB video card such as the GeForce GTX 970 or Radeon R9 290X. The GTX 1060 and Radeon RX 480 should blitz through ACIII on Ultra, no problem.

CPU demands are less of a worry, with Assassin's Creed 3 typically leaning toward the lower end of the scale, favouring quad-core processors.
