Assassin's Creed: Rogue hits PS4 and Xbox One in March

A graphical upgrade - Ubisoft is promising "improved environment rendering, visual effects and textures" in addition to the increased resolution - appears to be the only major benefit in Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered. In early December, word came it had been rated by the Korean Ratings Board. The new edition also packs in all of the original's downloadable content and expansions, including two bonus missions - The Armor of Sir Gunn and The Siege of Fort de Sable - as well as the weapons, outfits, and customization items in the Master Templar and Explorer packs. The team is promising 4K on PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, and 1080p across all of the current consoles.

Remastered will be release on March 20. The game was originally released back in 2014 and is also available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

While Rogue isn't quite as great as the best Assassin's Creed titles, it certainly deserved to be played by more people. The first is its story, which focuses on the Templar side of the Assassin-Templar war.

Assassin's Creed Rogue is kind of the forgotten child in the Assassin's Creed family. It tells the tale of a young settler named Shay Patrick Cormac who has just been recruited into the Colonial Brotherhood of Assassins. Follow your own creed and set off on an extraordinary journey through New York City, the wild river valley, and far away to the icy cold waters of the North Atlantic in pursuit of your ultimate goal, to bring down the Assassins. It's unclear if the remaster simply delivers a closer approximation of the existing PC version running on a powerful gaming rig, or if there are new visual improvements in the package that aren't now available on PC.
