Assassin's Creed: Rogue release date announced; includes eye-tracking wizardry

Assassin's Creed: Rogue PC release date

If you were, like me, a bit disappointed that Assassin’s Creed went back to its traditional landlocked exploration in Assassin’s Creed Unity after the marvelous Black Flag, then you might have reason to tap another keg of rum today. 

Ubisoft has announced the imminent release of Assassin’s Creed: Rogue on PC, which launched on last gen consoles last year.

Rogue follows the exploits of Assassin turned Templar, Shay Patrick Cormac, as he explores the North Atlantic. It’s set further north and a good few years after Black Flag, but otherwise the two are very much alike. You’ll be able to get your grubby hands on it come March 10th.

Despite being a third-person game, Rogue also employs eye tracking, so you can move the camera as you look left or right. You’ll need the SteelSeries Sentry if you want to do that, though. 

If you pre-order the game on Uplay, you’ll also be able to pick up one of seven Assassin’s Creed games for free, which is a rather nice bonus if you’ve missed any of them. 

Ubisoft has also released the minimum system requirements, which you can take a look at below. 

  • Operating system: Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8/8.1 (64bit versions only)
  • Processor: Intel Core2Quad Q6600 @ 2.4 GHz or AMD Athlon II X4 620 @ 2.6 GHzH
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Video card: nVidia GeForce GTS450 or AMD Radeon HD5670 (1024MB VRAM) or Intel HD4600
  • Direct X: DirectX June 2010 Redistributable
  • Sound card: DirectX Compatible Sound Card with latest driver
  • Hard drive space: 11.4 GB

If anybody, at this point - after all the BS Ubisoft has pulled recently, still buys this - they deserve what they get.


It makes me sad though :'( A few Ubi titles (Rainbow6, The Division) I was looking forward to and I really liked Black Flag.

Well seeing as this game breaks absolutely no new ground in anything and has been in development for PC a quite some time, I doubt it will be too much of a train-wreck.

Then again it's Ubisoft so I still fully except it to run less than perfectly...

Just as a side note:

I still can't run AC:Unity at playable framerates even at the lowest settings with my FX-8350 and GTX770...

You should be able to - but your FX-8350 might not be the right CPU for your GTX770. It's on par with a Intel Core i7-960. The FX-8350 is not the ideal CPU. I wish it was since I like AMD, or used to, regardless most games preform worse on AMD than Intel for various reasons. In short when you get the time/money you should consider going Intel. Just a suggestion. I think your CPU might be bottleneck'ing your GPU.

Yeah, I'm aware.

It's just that you would think it would run on goddamn lowest settings... It SHOULD be more than enough...
