Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered sets sail in March

It's coming to PS4 and Xbox One (with Pro and X enhancements) on March 20. Given that the original game's visuals were hindered somewhat by the fact that the game needed to be able to run on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, this 4K upgrade should help Rogue look like a proper current gen title.

Starring Shay Patrick Cormac, players explore the icy North Atlantic, the bustling streets of New York City and a river valley.

Ubisoft says it'll "offer an even more attractive and immersive gaming experience that invites fans of the series and new players alike to discover, or rediscover, Shay's adventures in 18th century North America". The level cap will jump from 40 to 45, leaving you room to become an even more deadly assassin.

The bad news is that, for now, Ubisoft has not confirmed what the price of this release would be.

All DLC missions and weapon packs will be included, along with a new outfit - the one worn by Assassin's Creed Oranges hero Bayek in last year's new game.

Ubisoft is a leading creator, publisher and distributor of interactive entertainment and services, with a rich portfolio of world-renowned brands, including Assassin's Creed, Just Dance, Tom Clancy's video game series, Rayman, Far Cry and Watch Dogs. It's a sort-of sequel to Black Flag, with some of the same characters and that game's excellent seafaring gameplay. Because players are sailing in the cold North Atlantic, falling in the water will quickly deplete Shay's life.

It's a shame that Ubisoft didn't do more to properly promote Assassin's Creed: Rogue, because it focused on the Templar's side for once and gave an alternative view to the typical Assassin's story. Did you play it when it was originally released, or will this be your first adventure with Shay?
