Assassin’s Creed Rogue is the brand new Assassin’s Creed game for the previous generation platforms. This year, Ubisoft decided to create two separate Assassin’s Creed games for each of the generation leading to Assassin’s Creed Unity being developed for the PS4 and Xbox One, while Assassin’s Creed Rogue is specifically being developed for the PS3 and Xbox 360. PC is getting the best of both worlds with Assassin’s Creed Unity and Rogue to be released on PC.
If you have still kept your PS3 and Xbox 360, or want to play another pirate themed game with ships like Assassin’s Creed Black Flag, you can play Assassin’s Creed Rogue to satisfy your desire for such an adventure.
We have decided to compare both versions of the game, since they are currently exclusive to the previous generation (A PC version will be released early next year). You can check out an image comparison between both version below.
Check out more comparisons in the gallery below.
In regards to the image quality, both seem to look on par with each other. Although curiously, the shadows appear to render slightly different on each of the platform owing to the difference in the Sun’s position in-game. The PS3 version also has some foliage pared down at some locations compared to the Xbox 360 version of the game. The performance of the game is also solid on the Xbox 360 while the frame rate tends to drop at occasions on the PS3.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue feels more like a successor to Black Flag and if you want to buy the game, judging from the image comparison in this article, the Xbox 360 version of the game easily gets the nod as the best version.
