Like most Ubisoft games, the newest Assassin's Creed game, Odyssey, will indeed have multiple DLC packs. An extra side story, Legacy of the First Blade, which will be launching this December, will show one of the first ever assassins in the series, giving fans some extra lore to dig into. Spring of next year will also see the release of The Fate of Atlantis, a pack that adds extra areas and enemies to take on. As an added bonus for Season Pass holders, they'll also have access to two extra games: Assassin's Creed III Remastered and Assassin's Creed Liberation Remastered. The latter already saw a re-release in HD after initially releasing on the Vita, but ACIII which came out in 2012, hasn't yet made its way onto current gen systems. Both games will feature 4K textures and assets on all available platforms, as well as "improved controls/gameplay elements". If you don't want to pick up the Season Pass for the remaster of Assassin's Creed III, you'll be able to buy it standalone as well. Assassin's Creed Odyssey will release on October 5, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

  • The Lost Tales of Greece: Free episodic questlines will release regularly in-between episodes, providing a constant flow of new stories for players to discover. These quests will feature familiar faces and new characters from the world of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
  • Recurring In-Game Events: Each week a new epic ship or mercenary will appear, presenting players with challenging battles as they hunt down these powerful enemies. Daily and weekly contracts will send players on new quests across Greece.
  • Discovery Tour: The educational tool will let players explore the game world in a conflict-free environment and learn about Ancient Greece’s monuments, culture and history.
  • Many more updates, including new monstrous and mythical creatures to defy and a New Game Plus mode presenting new challenges and the ability to see how different choices affect players’ stories.

gameplay corners repolished,
Ubisoft did say that they wanted to modernize some aspects of AC3, and fix up some gameplay elements, though they didn't elaborate.
as well as "improved controls/gameplay elements".
Not too sure what it means, but maybe it's something decent? The AC games are starting to feel clunky, so going back and touching up some of the games in terms of control is kinda welcome at this point.

Interesting as most of 3's problems are not something a remaster will fix. They can make it look prettier and give it better controls but they can't make Connor not all the worst aspects of Native American stereotypes with the personality of a rotted tree stump.
