This March, get ready for some thunderous naval battles against the assassin's brotherhood by taking control of Shay Patrick Cormac's ship Morrigan, as Assassin's Creed Rogue has the series finding its sea legs on PC once more, with tactical ship to ship combat rivaling that of its predecessor Assassin's Creed Black Flag.

Assassin's Creed Rogue for PC is under development by Ubisoft Sofia and runs on the same "AnvilNext" game engine that powers Assassin's Creed: Black Flag. Players will see life from the other side of the fence with Templar Cormac's fight against the brotherhood. Assassin's Creed: Rogue is set to officially launch on March 10th on PC. Before you set sail though you'd do well to see if gaming rig's a queasy landlubber or an old sea dog, with official system requirements for Assassin's Creed Rogue.

Assassin's Creed Rogue Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8/8.1 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4 GHz or AMD Athlon II X4 620 2.6 GHz
  • RAM: 2 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 1024 MB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTS 450, Radeon HD5670, or Intel HD 4600
  • HDD: 11.4 GB available space
  • DX: DirectX 11

This requirements will be a sigh of relief for many gamers. Comparing these to Assassin's Creed Black Flag, the requirements are in fact very similar, as you'd expect running on the same engine. What I should clear up is that Ubisoft claim these system requirements for Assassin's Creed Rogue are for both minimum and recommended, for what it's worth. This likely indicates you may be able to get away with even less.

The recommended processors for AC: Rogue are fairly old and will enable most users to run the game smoothly. Same goes for the GPUs, which are also just a bit higher compared to the minimum requirements of Black Flag. What's likely the case here is that Rogue is running on the fairly old AnvilNext engine which will have reduced the requirements for the game. An even rarer treat is Intel HD 4600 and HD5200, meaning Assassin's Creed Rogue is compatible with integrated graphics at launch.

The RAM requirements for Assassin's Creed: Rogue are also very low. Compared to its predecessor Black Flag, Rogue will only require 2 GB RAM which is available on even the lowest-end systems today. GPU VRAM is 1024 MB which is identical to that required by Black Flag, although we are seeing a shift up to to DirectX11 support as a minimum.
