Ahoy, mateys! Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered — also known as “Black Flag 2” — is real. It will be setting sail for PlayStation 4 and XBox One on March 20th.
All released DLC will be included with the new version, as well as weapon packs and a new outfit. What’s really cool is that the outfit comes straight out of Origins and is one that Bayek wears in the newest game in the series.
To celebrate the big news, Ubisoft released this nifty new trailer:
The Remastered version will include 4K support for XBox One X and PlayStation Pro as well as 1080p for PlayStation 4 and XBox one.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue
In addition to running in 4K, Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered sports higher-resolution textures and shadows, improved environmental rendering, and new visual effects, making its sprawling wilderness, Arctic icescapes, and bustling version of New York City more striking than ever. 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. It also includes a new bonus: Bayek’s legacy outfit from Assassin’s Creed Origins.
Originally released on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, Assassin’s Creed Rogue mixes traditional on-foot gameplay with naval exploration, letting players captain an ice-breaking ship – the Morrigan – as an Assassin-turned-Templar hunting down his former comrades. Offering a chance to see Assassin’s Creed from the Templar side of its millennia-long secret war, the game turns a number of series conventions on their heads, while adding plenty of unique twists of its own.
