Assassin's Creed Rogue HD Rated For PS4 and Xbox One in Korea

A re-release of Rogue looks to be a reality.

News by Mike Williams, .

It looks like Ubisoft is going to follow-up the excellent Assassin's Creed: Origins with... a re-release of Assassin's Creed Rogue? The game was previously listed by Italian retailers ePrice and Webster for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a release date of March 15, 2018. The listings also pointed to a price point of around $30.

Now the game has been rated by the Korean Game Rating & Administration Committee. The rating was dated for today and the game's full title is Assassin's Creed Rogue HD.

Rogue launched in 2014, a mid-budget release for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, allowing the full-fledged release, Assassin's Creed Unity, to focus on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. I reviewed the original game and found that while it offered a new perspective on the Assassin-Templar conflict, it was a bit light on content and had some bugs.

"While Unity shot for the stars and missed a bit, Rogue is content with keeping its feet on the ground. It's a game made from bits and pieces of Assassin's Creed games you've played before and the only thing that elevates it beyond that is the unique story focus. Despite that, Rogue is solid entry in the franchise and a fitting capstone on the Kenway Trilogy of games," I said in my review.

That said, I don't really see this as a game folks were asking for a re-release of. Perhaps it's a setup for the next Assassin's Creed?

    I'm glad to see this. I loved Black Flag. So naturally, I wanted to play Rogue as well. But the fact that it was only available on last-gen consoles kept me from taking the plunge.

    I was really expecting this to come out like 6 months after the original last gen version. (I guess the PC version is already an HD version.)

    I'll buy it again if they remove the thing where the main character pulls up his non-existent hood every time he gets off the boat. All of his animations are from Edward Kenway in Black Flag and for some reason they didn't bother to just remove that one.

    Been a long time since I played Black Flag, I think I might be ready for this.

    Honestly, I'm more surprised that it took Ubisoft this long to port Assassin's Creed Rogue. I thought the series' last hurrah on last gen platforms would come to the new ones like a year after release, if not sooner.

    But... were the PS3 and 360 not HD consoles? Does that mean by HD remaster of FFX was not HD enough?

    *don't mind me being pedantic about the weird use of HD*

    I bought this for about $9 a couple months ago on the PC. It seems pretty cool, like a sequel to Black Flag, but I've only played about an hour of it. I plan on playing more after I finish Origins.

    @link6616 Do people still count 720p as HD?
