Assassin's Creed III Remastered

Ubisoft revealed today that Assassin's Creed III Remastered will be released on March 29 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. This release will feature 4K and HDR capabilities on the PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One X, and PC versions of the game. All versions include higher resolution textures, a new graphics engine, and other graphical improvements. They event improved some gameplay mechanics in this release.

Does it fix the obnoxiously long intro/tutorial section that essentially makes up the first third of the game?

This release does include the full base game, and the DLC including "Benedict Arnold" and "Hidden Secrets" missions. It also includes the "Tyranny of King Washington" expansion and all of Assassin's Creed III Liberation Remastered.

Don't forget that those who own the Season Pass for Assassin's Creed: Odyssey will get a free copy of Assassin's Creed III Remastered.

Assassin’s Creed III Remastered: Players will embody Connor, a master Assassin born of the beauty and brutality of 18th-century America. As a bloody revolution draws near, your tribe is threatened by a powerful group seeking to crush the American Revolution and control the thirteen colonies. Shocked into action by the devastation of your village, you pledge your life to the cause of freedom and embark on a decades-long quest to achieve it.

Tyranny of King Washington: Explore an alternate history where one of America’s greatest heroes, George Washington, succumbs to the temptation of infinite power. The new King is born and his reign leaves no one untouched. Players must return freedom to the land by dethroning the tyrant our hero once called a friend.

Assassin’s Creed III Liberation Remastered: Follow Aveline’s story as she battles Spanish forces in the American south to win freedom for her land and people. A woman of conviction, Aveline fights for freedom in 18th-century New Orleans, a city on the brink of a rebellion as the Spanish Empire imposes its new rule. Embark on an epic journey that will take her from the crowded streets of New Orleans to voodoo-haunted swamps and ancient Mayan ruins.
A comparison trailer showing off some of the visual changes can be found below. It looks like a lot of the lighting has been given a bit of a yellow tint in the remaster? I'm going to assume that a lot of that comes from it being a different time of day between similar scenes.
