Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered Coming in March
The final Assassin's Creed game from the PS3/360 era is making the jump.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue is kind of the forgotten child in the Assassin’s Creed family. Developed by Ubisoft Sofia, the game flew under the radar of many. It was the last game in the series to land exclusively on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. And it earned lackluster reviews as the next generation of consoles were taking over.
Not to be forever forgotten, Rogue is making a comeback. Ubisoft has announced that they are remastering the game and bringing it to us in just a few months on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
The remastered Rogue will also offer all the original game’s premium content free of charge. The DLC includes two bonus missions – The Armor of Sir Gunn Quest and The Siege of Fort de Sable. It as houses the Master Templar and Explorer packs, containing weapons, customization items and special outfits. One of the special outfits is actually Bayek’s legacy outfit from Assassin’s Creed Origins.
Ubisoft Sofia is also behind the remastered edition of Rogue. The team is promising 4K on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, and 1080p across all of the current consoles.
For those of you (most of you) that aren’t familiar with Assassin’s Creed Rogue, here is Ubisoft’s official synopsis:
“Assassin’s Creed Rogue tells the unique story of Shay Patrick Cormac, a fearless young member of the Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, who undergoes a dark transformation from an Assassin to a grim and committed Templar who hunts down his former brothers. Players’ journeys will take them from beautiful New York City to the Wild River Valley and icy cold waters of the North Atlantic.”
The title acts as a sequel to Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and a prequel to Assassin’s Creed III. A mission towards the end of the game also directly links up with Assassin’s Creed Unity. So, as you can see, Rogue’s plot appears to be crucial to the overall narrative of the series.
