It seems Ubisoft's been tucking into its secret supplies of rum stashed in the bulkhead, updating its official Uplay store with different system requirements for AC: Rogue to those it's already published via a blog. Last time around Ubisoft claimed Assassin's Creed Rogue would have the same requirements for both recommended and minimum settings, but this seems not to be the case at all.

So if you thought you could have Assassin's Creed: Rogue looking its finest you'd best think again, with the official system requirements taking a bit of a leap up for those who want to enable all those bells and whistles. To find out whether your rig's ship shape and Bristol fashion, check out the newly revised AC Rogue system requirements.

Assassin's Creed Rogue Minimum 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

Assassin's Creed Rogue Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 8 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2400S 2.5GHz or AMD FX-6100 3.3GHz
  • RAM: 4GB System Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti or AMD Radeon HD 6870

Okay so first of all, those minimum requirements for AC Rogue remain identical. They aren't too bad at all - a bit of a leap up from AC4: Black Flag but nothing that should prove too concerning. Every asked for here is fairly old so most users will be able to run AC Rogue.

The newly released recommended Assassin's Creed Rogue system requirements are obviously a touch higher. There's still nothing here to cause too much concern, and most with a decent gaming rig bought in the last 3-4 years should be capable of maxing things out, or thereabouts. 4GB RAM is pretty low for titles by today's standards so this is a bit of a relief. The sight of an i5 or an FX-6000 series processor might get you worried, but both of these are towards the lower end of the scale in their respective families, and there's much more powerful offerings to be found now. 

GPU takes the biggest leap, up to a 560 Ti or an HD 6870 from a GTS 450 or HD 5670. There's a lot of wiggle room here, but it's only going to be necessary if you want to really crank up the visual effects. Hopefully AC Rogue has been a little more optimised than Black Flag was, because some of the more advanced settings can prove pretty demanding, including godrays, HBAO+, and the dynamic weather and water effects.

Then will i really max this game, or are these requirements just for cinematic 30fps?

Recommended requirements are never for max settings. Recommended is normally for just high settings with low or no AA @ 1080p. Considering this game is using the exact same engine from AC4 I would expect you to get the same performance you get on AC4.

Thank you for this info. A almost maxed AC4 before the physX patch came out. PhysX gave very high preformance impact on my gpu sadly.

Yeah the shader performance of the GPU determines PhysX performance & it really takes a lot on AC4. When I get near fires on the beaches the vortex effect pulls me down 10 to 15 fps (from 60fps to about 47fps) when I am looking at the fire using the high PhysX setting in AC4. A very performance demanding setting for sure.

Emm, not always depends on the architecture as well, as my 780Ti got 2800 Shaders, but my 980 got 2000, (well 980 sli got 4100)

The actual shader performance of the 780ti is 2673 on 2880 CUDA cores.


The actual shader performance of the 980 is 3362 on 2048 CUDA cores.


The 980 has better shader performance so it should get better PhysX performance.

Number of NPCs, Shader quality, Lighting effects, Smoke & Particle effects are all set much higher on Unity. Also higher resolution textures.

Nice to see the old piledriver cpu's on the recommended list. You can pick up a used fx 6100 pretty cheap(if you can find one :P) now since the newer vishera cpu's have completely replaced piledriver. I actually still have my fx 6100 :D

Actually fx 6100 is buildozer family, the piledriver ones are newer and better in IPC (the x3xx range like 6300)

Yeah I just noticed I said piledriver instead of bulldzoer, I guess that is what you get for making a post early in the morning. I would have corrected it if I didn't fall asleep at my desk.

I don't play the AC series... But I have to cousin brothers who are diehard fans... One has a rig with i5-2500, GTS 450, 8 GB RAM and the younger one has a laptop with i5-4210U, GT 840M, 8 GB RAM, 1366x768 resolution 15.6 inch display...
