    Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered follows a rogue assassin turned templar Shay to stop the suffering of innocent people. Here is our Assassin’s Creed Rogue Remastered Review.

    The game was developed by Ubisoft Sofia and published by Ubisoft, it was originally released on November 11, 2014, for Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3 but was later remastered for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on March 20, 2018.

    Returning to the location of Assassin’s Creed 3, Shay’s Assassin roots get turned around after having to retrieve an artifact in Lisbon, but when he grabs the artifact, it causes a massive earthquake that levels the city. Of course, Shay gets out and tries to warn the Assassins, but they dont want to listen. This enrages Shay and tries to run away with the tools to find more of the artifacts. He gets shot and is presumed dead by the Assassins, but the Templars save his life and Shay quickly starts to align his views with them.

    The story is super interesting, but what I just wrote out happens halfway through the game, for the 1st half you are still part of the Assassins, and makes a lot of things you do there feel irrelevant and stretched out to build up his character, and while it does pack a bigger punch when things do happen to go down, having it happen halfway throughout an already short game feels like a mistimed moment that could have been prevented by making the game a bit longer.

    The majority of characters are great with only a few minor outliers on the assassin side. A lot also seem to connect the bridge between AC 3 and Black Flag having characters from both making appearances in the game, you have Haythem Kenway, a young Achilles, an old Adéwalé, and Johnson all making their return making the game feel very connected to the universe you are playing in unlike the bridge between AC Revelations and 3 had due to the massive change in scenery.

    Its gameplay is very comparable to Black Flag as well as taking the open-world ship approach opening up the world even more that was established in AC 3 and letting you explore the surrounding lands as well while traveling on the ship. I’m by no means a fan of the ship stuff and in this game, it just became so much more annoying at times that I just wanted to get it over with the majority of the time and it really makes a great game shine a lot less than it should have.

    They did introduce some cool new things like a grenade launcher, a mask to avoid the smoke bombs, hidden Assassins trying to take you down, and a new type of hideout to take down, but having a full mission dedicated to those new features also felt like it took away things that could have otherwise been explored in the story and especially the hideouts were just really annoying. On the ship side, they added an amazing Puckle Gun, and that made the ship gameplay a lot more bearable and enjoyable for me.

    There are also some returning features like the money-making economy system, but comparing it to the ones we had before, this for sure is a massive downgrade forcing you to take down ships and get materials before you are able to buy a building instead of just paying some money for it. So because this was again connected to the ship stuff, not as much fun as I wanted it to be. In the end, the size of the map is unnecessarily massive compared to what we got with the story and really makes the world feel empty in some ways and made me wanna avoid as much side content as possible just because I knew how much there was.
