Assassin’s Creed Rogue PC Requirements and Release Date

Last year, Ubisoft was ambitious and gave us two Assassin’s Creeds. Assassin’s Creed Unity was a broken mess of a game that is only now becoming something worth playing. Assassin’s Creed Rogue, on the other hand, was actually really enjoyable for me – it tied up the whole America saga, set the stage for Unity, and delivered some generally solid gameplay. Now PC gamers can indulge in it, at last.

If you’re interested, you can read my review of the game from when I played it on PS3. Or, also convincing, here’s the PC launch trailer, which looks identical to the normal launch trailer we saw all those months ago. Okay, maybe it looks slightly better, but it’s the same thing just with the PC release date.

And here’s the non-YouTube one.

That’s right, Assassin’s Creed Rogue will be available on PC on 10 March. Checking the Uplay store, if you pre-order you can get a free Assassin’s Creed game, as long as that game doesn’t rhyme with “shmunity.” Of course, you will need to see if your PC is up to scratch. Here are the requirements.

Minimum Requirements

  • 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 GHz
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Video card: nVidia GeForce GTS450 or AMD Radeon HD5670 (1024MB VRAM)
  • DirectX: DirectX June 2010 Redistributable
  • Sound: DirectX Compatible Sound Card with latest driver

Recommended Specifications

  • Operating System: Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8/8.1 (64bit versions only)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5 2400s @ 2.5 GHz or better / AMD FX-6100 @ 3.3 GHz or better
  • RAM: 4GB or more for Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1
  • Video card: nVidia GeForce GTX 560Ti (1024 VRAM) or better / AMD Radeon HD 6870 (1024 VRAM) or better

Of course you can also just check if your GPU is on the list of supported hardware. I’m sort of impressed by how economical the port is – it’s not requiring massive amounts of RAM or a top of the line card. I suppose as an old generation game it should have old generation specs, but hopefully this also means that it was actually properly optimized and will run well. Still, I wouldn’t recommend that any PC gamer pick this up at launch – wait until the Uplay kinks are ironed out. But, once they are, it really is a worthwhile Assassin’s Creed to play, and a must play for any fan of the franchise who still needs to see how things finish up in ‘america.
