After a ratings board leak last month, rumors were circulating that Assassins' Creed: Rogue would be getting a re-release on current generation hardware. And as of today, Ubisoft has confirmed that the game will be getting remastered for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and will feature 4K resolution for the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X as well. Additionally, all DLC content will be bundled with the remastered version of the game. Assassins' Creed: Rogue initially launched in 2014, for PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.
Today, Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed® Rogue Remastered will be available on March 20th, 2018, for PlayStation®4 Pro and Playstation®4 computer entertainment systems, and across the Xbox One family of devices, including Xbox One X. Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered will include all of the downloadable content from the original game: two bonus missions (The Armor of Sir Gunn Quest and The Siege of Fort de Sable), as well as the Master Templar and Explorer packs, which contain weapons, customisation items and special outfits, including Bayek’s legacy outfit from Assassin’s Creed® Origins.
Created by Ubisoft Sofia, the studio that developed the original Assassin’s Creed Rogue, this remaster further enriches the franchise’s current-gen catalogue, and the game will shine in 4K on PlayStation®4 Pro and Xbox One X (and run 1080p on PS4™ and Xbox One). Thanks to the 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.
Initially launched on PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360 in 2014, 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.
