Game news Assassin’s Creed: the perfect timing for a remake of the first episode?
On November 13, 2007 the very first Assassin’s Creed landed, a real slap in the face for the time that will remain as one of the first major titles of the Xbox 360 / PlayStation 3 generation. 13 years later, the founding title of the saga remains the only one not to have known the joys of an original release or a real remastering, or even re-emerged on the PS4 / One generation.
If a patch exists on Xbox One to offer a refined version that is very pleasant visually, it will therefore be necessary to wait to see a real remaster arrive … Unless Ubisoft opts directly for the remake formula. A choice that would make sense, as we explain in this video, on the one hand because the aging mechanics of the episode would be more pleasant to discover or rediscover in 2020 if they were replaced by new gameplay elements.
But it would also be a reasonable choice given the game mechanics of the freshly released Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which brings up to date a vision of “old-fashioned” assassinations that would be particularly suitable for a return of the first game. . Finally, the scenario of the part of the present justifies there too the integration of a coherent remake in the timeline of the game. This last point obviously spars the sequences of the present of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, we therefore invite you to come back to see this video later if you haven’t played the game yet and don’t intend to be spoiled.
If nothing has been announced regarding a possible remake of the first, the latest episode, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, was released on November 10 on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series and Stadia. The version PS5 comes out on November 19.
