Assassin’s Creed has regained some of its popularity thanks to the brilliant AC: Origins. The Egyptian-set tenth chapter in Ubisoft’s mega-franchise has been notching up both good sales and reviews. With Assassin’s Creed at it’s best point in over 5 years, Ubisoft has seen fit to issue a remaster of Assassin’s Creed: Rogue. As a fan of the series, this excites me as it is the only game in the franchise that I have yet to play. Rogue was the last Assassin’s Creed game to be released on Xbox 360. It came out around the same time as AC: Unity was released on Xbox One. This meant that a lot of early adopters of Xbox One (and PlayStation 4) missed the opportunity to play Rogue.
Well, on 20th March, Xbox One owners will be able to play through the adventures of Shay Patrick Cormac as the game gets a remaster. What’s more, the game will arrive with enhancements for Xbox One X which will allow you to play in 4K. Here’s the official announcement as well as the teaser trailer for the game –
Assassin’s Creed Rogue returns for another voyage as Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered. Arriving March 20 for the Xbox One family of devices, it will be enhanced for Xbox One X, meaning you’ll be able to relive Shay Patrick Cormac’s Assassin-hunting adventure in glorious 4K.
Giving players a chance to see the history-spanning Assassin-Templar war from the Templar side, Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered is an odyssey through 18th century America and the North Atlantic, where you’ll fight for law and order with a mix of nautical and on-foot gameplay.
In addition to delivering native 4K resolution, Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered features new visual effects, better environmental rendering, and higher-resolution textures and shadows, ensuring that its arctic ice fields, sprawling river valley wilderness, and pre-Revolution New York City all look better than ever. Additionally, Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered lets Shay wear Bayek’s legacy outfit from Assassin’s Creed Origins, and includes all of the original game’s downloadable content, including weapons, outfits, customization items, and two bonus missions: The Armor of Sir Gunn Quest and The Siege of Fort de Sable.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered is an iceberg-smashing, grenade-launching, Assassin-hunting adventure unlike anything else in the series, and you can set sail on March 20 when it arrives on the Xbox One family of devices.
