In a move that will surprise nobody, Ubisoft has confirmed its plans to release Assassin’s Creed: Rogue on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Dubbed Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered, this updated version will include all of the last-gen title’s downloadable content and offer the presentation improvements that one would expect. Things like improved textures, better effects and — most surprising of all — 4K resolution.
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 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.
This, if you’ll recall, was the game that released alongside Assassin’s Creed: Unity and tied into the oft-maligned current-gen title. Back then, everyone expected it to hit modern consoles; what’s surprising is that it’s taken so long.
Those who purchase Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered will, as mentioned above, have access to all of its DLC. This includes 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, customization items and special outfits, including Bayek’s legacy outfit from Assassin’s Creed: Origins.
Anyone who missed it the first time around, or liked it enough to want to play it again, will be able to play this upgraded version of Ubisoft Sofia’s Assassin’s Creed: Rogue on March 20th.
