It’s easy to forget about Assassin’s Creed: Rogue. Originally released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2014 as a previous-generation alternative to Assassin’s Creed: Unity, many fans bypassed Rogue in favor of the newest PS4/Xbox One entry in the series. But now Assassin’s Creed: Rogue is back.
Yesterday, Ubisoft announced plans to release Assassin’s Creed: Rogue Remastered for the PS4 and Xbox One on March 20. Rogue Remastered will include a graphical upgrade (1080p on PS4/Xbox One and 4K on PS4 Pro/Xbox One X), as well as all of the game’s downloadable content (The Armor of Sir Gunn Quest and The Siege of Fort de Sable expansions, the Master Templar Pack, and the Explorer Pack).
Created by Ubisoft Sofia, the studio that developed the original Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, this remaster further enriches the franchise’s current-gen catalog. Thanks to higher resolution, improved environment rendering, visual effects and textures, Assassin’s Creed: Rogue Remastered will offer an even more beautiful and immersive gaming experience that invites fans of the series and new players alike to discover or rediscover Shay’s adventures in 18th-century North America.
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 and slow 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.
