This isn't the first time Ubisoft has included a remastered version into their Season Pass. Earlier this year, Far Cry V's Season Pass also included a remastered version of Far Cry 3 which unfortunately was poorly received by both critics and players. Hopefully, the remastered version of Assassin's Creed III and Assassin's Creed Liberation will not suffer the same fate. Assassin's Creed Odyssey is scheduled to launch on October 5, 2018. Check out the trailer below for more information and stay tuned for more gaming news and updates.
