Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered: Announcement Teaser Trailer
Critic Reviews for Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered
Rogue felt like a throwback when it was originally released alongside the next-gen Assassin's Creed Unity. This same feeling accompanies this remastered version. After the significant advancements made to the series by last year's Origins, Rogue second outing feels equally dated and mistimed. Ironically for the series, Rogue Remastered proves that going back in time isn't always fun.
It's exciting to re-board the Morrigan and step into the boots of Shay Cormac. The ground combat may feel the effect of age, but the naval combat remains a highlight of the series. While a lot of people may have chased Unity onto the new generation of hardware, missing Rogue in the process, now they can enjoy the crowning jewel of the Americas Trilogy at 4K, which looks better than ever.
Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered sits in a bit of an odd place. It's a good game on its own, but after the release of Assassin's Creed Origins and the major improvements it brought to the series, Shay Patrick Cormac's trek across the ocean feels outdated only four years after its original release. If you can stomach a return to the franchise's original formula, then the experience will be worth your while thanks to a compelling plot and excellent naval mechanics. But if you've grown tired of that recipe, Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered won't do anything to draw you back in.
Despite the good technical remaster, Assassin's Creed Rogue finds its definitive form out of time. It's hard to suggest to play such an old episode of the Ubisoft saga when you can play Origins, which just gives to Assassin's Creed a brand new life. However Rogue is a fair Black Flag spin-off, and if you are a fan of the saga and never had the chance to play the role of the betrayer of the Creed, it may be worth a run.
