AC Rogue Remastered announced

AC Rogue Remastered announced

It's not really a surprise anymore, but the remaster of Assassin's Creed: Rogue has been announced for PS4 and Xbox One, with the higher end versions of these consoles getting the full 4K treatment of course. Assassin's Creed: Rogue is pretty much Assassin's Creed 4.5, not that it's a bad thing!

I knew this was going to come to current consoles eventually. Ubisoft wouldn't let it die with PS3 and X360, plus after Assassin's Creed: Origins' critical and commercial success, Ubisoft figured this was the right time.

This Remastered version will also come to PC. Though Ubisoft hasn't said if PC owners of the original will get a free update or at least a discount.

Assassin's Creed: Rogue is a great game, kinda like a spiritual successor to Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag - 4.5 or Black Flag 2. AC: Rogue got overlooked because AC: Unity was so bad at launch and overall wasn't a great game.

But AC: Rogue is worth playing, the story is great and it shows better than anything else in the series that the line between "good" and "evil" when it comes to the Templars and Assassins is very thin. I really liked the reasons why Shay Cormac changed sides, reminds me of one of The Witcher's Geralt's quotes:

"Evil is evil, lesser, greater, middling - makes no difference. The degree is arbitrary, the definition blurred. If I'm to choose between one evil and another, I'd rather not choose at all."

The Assassins aren't always "in the right". Just as the Templars aren't always "in the wrong". Really great game! Shame the Nintendo Switch isn't getting a version, collecting all the chests and items would be much more digestable on the go while you're doing other stuff, riding the bus or waiting in line.

PS. Any chance you guys could get the "Dark Souls Remastered" trailer as well?

This wasn't overlooked for me because of Unity. It gave them plenty of time to release fixes for Unity. I checked the game out in early 2015 after the last update was released.
At its current state, it is still utter garbage and its a shame, but the remnants of this broken game engine can still be seen in the latest version of Syndicate too.

This was a great game and I will happily play it again when it is very cheap and if it gets the same care as ACIV did over its last gen counterparts like with better ocean effects that can be seen at further distances.

Kind of disagree with the story though. Would it have killed Shay to try to talk to his old comrades before murdering them all? Hmm, maybe it would have killed him had he approached wearing Templar colours lol.
I think it would have been better if Shay was betrayed by the Templars in the end because in other games that is very clearly what they do to each other all the time. It has never really been shown how the Templars aren't evil in the series, I mean ever.

What's up?

    Seth Personally i'll recommend Dead Cells or Enter the Gungeon over a bottom tier rogielike with survival elements. (6 Hours ago)

    Seth Below is really hardcore game. It makes you looking in the dark for your lantern each time you die by a trap that is impossible to see. Sometimes you lose like 20 mins until you find it. (7 Hours ago)

    MikeManiac61 @b0vril: As much as i like Red Dead, R* made the pacing for this one too slow. Half the time it felt like i was playing a cinematic. Most side missions felt more interesting than the story. (10 Hours ago)
  • b0vril
    b0vril @toelessfoot: that's probably the best way to go. I didn't find the story or it's missions all that great. (13 Hours ago)
