To say that may seem like a stretch to some. Upon its original release, Rogue was criticised for having samey gameplay and a weak story. Although, for those who stuck with it after release would find a story that offered something we’ve only ever seen once in the Assassin’s Creed timeline.
Assassin’s Creed: Rogue offers the story of the Irish born Ray Cormack as he defects from the Creed to fight for the Templars instead. Eventually this interesting twist on Creed conventions was recognised by the community as something truly unique as we explore the continued story of Haytham Kenway, last seen properly in Assassin’s Creed 3. It was a clever narrative that tied the stories of Assassin’s Creed 3, Black Flag and Rogue together. A kind of narrative binding not seen since the Ezio days. As a direct sequel to Black Flag, Rogue continues to feature the same naval combat and open world exploration as its predecessor. Some call it samey. Yet the gameplay found in Black Flag specifically is acclaimed as the best Assassin’s Creed has offered so far. So for more of it to be served up in Rogue was only ever a good thing.
The remaster of Assassin’s Creed: Rogue will include a higher resolution, improved rendering, visual effects, and textures. It will also arrive with all DLC content included. Support for the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X will be included, helping Rogue to render in 4K. For the base systems, the game will run at 1080p and releases on March 20th.
