‘Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered’ is coming to PS4, Xbox One

Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered: Announcement Teaser Trailer | Ubisoft [US]

In 2014, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players got to play Assassin’s Creed Unity, an ambitious entry in the Assassin’s Creed series held back by numerous technical problems and a boring story. Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 players, meanwhile, got to play Assassin’s Creed Rogue, a follow-up to Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, centered on a Templar rather than an Assassin. It was nearly unanimously considered the better of the two games, and more than three years later, current-gen players will finally be able to play it.

Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered is coming to both Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and it comes with higher-resolution textures, new effects, all released expansions, the bonus missions “The Armor of Sir Gunn” and “The Siege of Fort de Sable,” and even an outfit from Assassin’s Creed Origins protagonist Bayek.

For Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro owners, you’ll also be able to experience the game in 4K, though Ubisoft didn’t specify in the announcement as to whether this was native 4K or a form of upscaling.

Much like Black Flag before it, Rogue combined the series’ traditional stealth and action with naval combat, but instead of the sunny Mediterranean, it took players to the icy North Atlantic, along with River Valley and New York City. The prospect of killing Assassins is something we haven’t seen much of in the series before, save for the twist near the beginning of Assassin’s Creed III. Unlike that game’s Haytham Kenway, who was committed to killing the Assassins from the beginning, Rogue‘s Shay was initially an Assassin.

“After a dangerous mission gone tragically wrong, Shay turns his back on the Assassins who, in response, attempt to end his life,” the game’s official website reads. “Cast aside by those he once called brothers, Shay sets out on a mission to wipe out all who turned against him and ultimately become the most feared Assassin hunter in history.”

Assassin’s Creed Rogue takes place in the 18th century during the French and Indian War, just before the events of Assassin’s Creed III.

Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered is out for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on March 20. We’re crossing our fingers for a Switch version, as well.

Assassin’s Creed Mirage takes the series back to 2007 in all the right ways
The main character of Assassin's Creed: Mirage perches on a ledge and looks out over the city of Baghdad.

Ubisoft bills Assassin’s Creed Mirage, its upcoming stealth adventure launching this October, as a return to the franchise’s roots. Go back to the original Assassin’s Creed in 2007 and you’ll find something that looks entirely different from the massive open-world of Valhalla. It was a more focused experience with an emphasis on methodic and stealthy gameplay, all taking place in Jerusalem.

Each subsequent entry would expand that existing formula while switching settings and time periods: 13th-century Italy, the American Revolutionary War, and the Golden Age of Piracy. However, 2017’s Assassin’s Creed Origin transitioned the series to a much larger open-world structure in Egypt, a trend that would balloon further with 2018’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and 2020’s massive Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

All cross-platform games (PS5, Xbox Series X, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC)
Two squads of heroes clash in an Overwatch 2 trailer.

Cross-platform support is becoming more important in the world of video games. Multiplayer hits like Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and Fortnite have pushed crossplay into the limelight, and now most AAA multiplayer games release with at least partial cross-platform support. Finding every cross-platform game is no easy feat, though, so we did the hard work to bring you a comprehensive list of games that support crossplay.

Unfortunately, there aren't any rules when it comes to crossplay, so each game handles the feature a little differently. To make matters more confusing, certain backward-compatible games on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X still support crossplay on the most recent hardware, even if there isn't an official release for that hardware.

It's time to ready your hidden blades once again, assassins, because a brand new entry in the Assassin's Creed series is upon us. All the leaks and rumors have turned out to be true, and the next installment in the franchise has been officially revealed as Assassin's Creed Mirage. This franchise has undergone some major changes in recent entries, and the next game seems poised to shake things up yet again.

First officially revealed during a Ubisoft Forward in September 2022, Assassin's Creed Mirage will be the next mainline game in the series after 2020's Assassin's Creed Valhalla. While each game typically only has smaller, less prominent ties to one another (at least after the series moved on from the Desmond arc), this game bucks the trend in that regard. From plot to gameplay changes and more, here's everything we know about Assassin's Creed Mirage, an upcoming PlayStation 5 game we have our eye on.
