The new version of the iconic game will acquire all the best attributes of the original; while reimagining the game for current times. It will feature a new catalog of enemy character models, enhanced voices, parkour animations, and much more. Interestingly, the game will let its players choose between the original or the modernized maps.

And to sweeten the deal even further, players will also have the option to unlock the original game from 1989 (’92 Mac version) by playing the standard campaign. The Mac version will be available on the main menu once unlocked.

Unfortunately, the game is still marked as “Coming Soon” on the page dedicated to the game on Ubisoft’s blog.
