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.
