Assassin’s Creed III and Liberation Remastered to Bring the American Revolution to Current Gen This March

Good news Assassin’s Creed fans: Assassin’s Creed III and Liberation Remastered is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One late next month.

In a surprise turn of events, Ubisoft is bringing the divisive third installment of the Assassin’s Creed franchise—as well as its spin-off Liberation—to current gen.

Mysteriously, no Switch port has been announced. Ubisoft has previously distanced itself from ports of its modern games to Nintendo hardware, but fans did expect the much-rumoured title to make the jump to Nintendo consoles.

The series has been relatively alien to Nintendo, despite being a multiplatform entity since its inception. Spin-offs aside, the only Assassin’s Creed games to come on a Nintendo console were the Wii U ports of III and Black Flag.

The release date has been rumoured for a few days now, but official confirmation came through the game’s official Twitter page:

For those itching to jump back into some classic Assassin’s Creed, be sure to check out the remaster when it drops on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One March 29, 2019. For all else from the world of single-player, be sure to follow OnlySP on  FacebookTwitter, and YouTube.

Layers of Fear 2 Launching Late Next Month

Layers of Fear 2

Layers of Fear 2 has been talked about for a while now and is finally coming late next month.

Announced today by publisher Gun Media, the sequel to the psychological romp through artistic ego Layers of Fear is set to launch May 28 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Gameplay-wise, the sequel looks to cover similar ground as its predecessor. As a first-person psychological horror with “an emphasis on exploration and story,” players meander through heavily-scripted set-pieces while solving puzzles and being scared a whole lot.

Layers of Fear 2, though, will be swapping the paintbrush for the dizzying heights of Hollywood. According to the game’s Steam synopsis, players “control a Hollywood actor who heeds the call of an enigmatic director to take on the lead role in a film shot aboard an ocean liner.”

Stifled by their own acting ambitions, the protagonist finds themselves alone and marooned on an increasingly nightmarish boat. The game’s unnamed protagonist must navigate their own past and the challenges the director sets them to unlock the secret to not just the film they are starring in, but their own motivations.

The original Layers of Fear was a captivating take on modern, story-driven horror, so the sequel’s inventive premise and greater scope are welcomed. While the sequel is embarking to a radically different setting, the title looks likely to recapture the original’s claustrophobic, atmospheric level design.
