At long last, Assassin’s Creed Rogue is making the jump from 7th gen consoles.
Just over three years later, Ubisoft has decided it’s time for Assassin’s Creed Rogue to jump to Xbox One and PS4 on March 20. Originally releasing a year after Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, many consider the game to be a sort of sequel to the game, or at least a meditation on what made Black Flag great. Naval combat and on-foot combat make a return while, for the first time, players control a Templar.
Way back in 2014, PS4 and Xbox One sales were taking off, but a huge amount of users hadn’t made the jump from Xbox 360 and PS3. Not wanting to miss that market, Ubisoft decided to launch Assassin’s Creed Rogue on 7th gen consoles (and PC a few months later) while releasing Assassin’s Creed Unity on Xbox One, PS4 and PC in the same year. The game was far less technically advanced than Unity, Rogue is still regarded as a decent entry in the franchise.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered will include all of the original game’s DLC, and will feature Bayek’s outfit from last year’s Assassin’s Creed Origins. Across all PS4 and Xbox One models the game will sport improved visuals, and the Pro and X versions of the game will support 4K resolution. Additionally, Rogue Remastered will have improved texture and shadow resolution, better environmental rendering and “new visual effects.”
