Assassin’s Creed Rogue is getting a remaster, Ubisoft has announced, bringing the overlooked title to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on March 20.
Back in 2014 it was a bit of a weird time for releases as developers were in that in-between time of launching games for both current gen consoles (Xbox One and PS4) while also supporting last gen (Xbox 360 and PS3). During this time Ubisoft decided to launch not one, but two Assassin’s Creed titles, one on current gen consoles (Assassin’s Creed Unity) and another on Xbox 360 and PS3 (Assassin’s Creed Rogue).
As you can imagine the focus was on the first Assassin’s Creed game to launch on current-gen consoles and as we all fondly recall, it was probably one of the most poorly rated games in the series causing Ubisoft to take a step back from its yearly release schedule following poor sales of its sequel, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.
During this time, Rogue, which tied into Unity was vastly overlooked, so in an effort to ensure players don’t miss out, Ubisoft has decided to release a remastered version of the game for Xbox One and PS4.
The remaster is set to come with a bunch of improvements for the Xbox One and PS4, however PS4 Pro and Xbox One X owners will be able to experience the game in 4K. Lovely. It’ll also include all DLC from the initial release as well as two bonus missions (The Armor of Sir Gunn Quest and The Siege of Fort de Sable), as well as the Master Templar and Explorer pack.
So if you missed out on the game first time around, here’s another reason for you to buy another Assassin’s Creed game.
