The seventh major instalment in the Assassin’s Creed series is being remastered for the new generation of consoles. Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed Rogue is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 20.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue was originally for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and later came to PC in early 2015. The game was released at the same time as Assassin’s Creed Black Flag on the next generation consoles. Assassin’s Creed Rogue marked the series final entry on the last generation of consoles. Rogue is set in 18th-century North America and tells the story of Shay Patrick Cormac, an Assassin who leaves the order and goes Rouge, eventually becoming a committed Templar.
Upon release, Rogue was praised for its interesting lead character, enjoyable story, and new weapons. Critics also raved the new mission design that required players to prevent assassinations instead of carrying out assassinations like in other Assassin’s Creed titles. However, the game was also criticized for its frequent bugs, lack of replayability and the absence of a multiplayer mode.
The re-release is being handled by Ubisoft Sofia and is set to run at a standard 1080p resolution with 4K support on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered will also contain all of the original game’s downloadable content: the Master Templar and Explorer DLC packs, as well as two bonus missions, “The Armor of Sir Gunn Quest” and “The Siege of Fort de Sable”.
A lot of players and fans may have missed this entry into the Assassin’s Creed due to the game being released alongside Black Flag. However, this may be a second chance for the forgotten title.
