Assassin’s Creed is now 10 years old and here are the best mods you can install for it

Alongside Crysis, Assassin’s Creed has also turned 10 years old today. Assassin’s Creed offered an open-world area that players could explore, and I still consider it one of the best AC games. While it could become a bit boring, it had great gameplay mechanics and I liked Altair.

But anyway, since the game is now 10 years old, it can look a bit ugly. As such, we’ve decided to share the best mods that you can use in order to slightly improve its visuals. Now don’t expect similar mind-blowing mods to those for Crysis. After all, the modding community for Assassin’s Creed was never that big.

The first mod is basically a High-Resolution Texture Pack. While this pack is still in beta phase, you can download its latest version from here. As its title suggests, this is a Texture Pack that includes updated new environment textures, new water textures, new plant/foliage textures and even new character model textures along with updated normal maps and specular maps.

The second is basically a SweetFX mod. The modpack contains cell shading and bloom effects, colour correction, and more blood skin/texture. It also comes with a save for the memory block 6 with all skills/equipment. Those interested can download it from here.

The third and last mod for the original Assassin’s Creed game is the most ambitious one. Titled “Assassin’s Creed Overhaul 2016“, this mod attempts to overhaul the game’s visuals, featuring new graphics, changed particles, different NPC skins, higher-resolution textures, effects and a shaders injector that is included in the package. The goal of this mod was to change most textures from original Assassin’s Creed to those from Assassin’s Creed Revelations while also adding some unique new textures.

Have fun!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
