Modder Hecumarine has modded the original Assassin's Creed to bring the graphics into the modern age, and from what we can see it looks pretty impressive, especially considering the original is nine years old this month (how time flies).
The page for the mod can be seen here and an article within it justifies his reasons for updating the graphics again: "You may ask why all the effort? Is the final version not enough? I thought so myself, but when I increased the resolution of the textures for the first time, I saw the huge difference, and so it motivated me to keep the mod growing. Not only that, I also improved a lot of particles, fixed many ugly things and added some new textures in the latest version. I even analised every city in the game and improved the atmosphere even more. Even the colour palette was reworked again so that you don't need to use sweetfx anymore."
"I hope it gives you some idea what I tried to achieve there. I would say that this is the last one but I won't, because the last year was supposed to end my work, yet I still changed so many things. Do not expect any more versions soon as I will focus on AC2 overhaul now so wish me luck. Anyway, I hope you will enjoy the latest version as much as I enjoyed working on it. Thank you guys for any support you have given me. Have fun!"
