I still have to play that game. I bought it years ago off ebay for around $10 for xbox 360 and still haven't touched it.

Makes sense considering III and Liberation were bundled together.

If true, I look forward to grabbing a copy once it's on deep discount.

Love those sea shanties in AC4.

I wish they would remaster 1 for ANYTHING.

(I also hated 4 so I wouldn’t double dip)

Black Flag was fun, but mainly for the pirate ship stuff. I couldn't finish the game, though...I MIGHT give it another try if it hits switch.

Would make sense, Black Flag was on Wii U and Rogue was the last last gen AC game. But I agree with @Ryu_Niiyama, I wish Ubisoft would remaster AC1 as every other AC game is on PS4 and XB1.

I really hope this is true. I played the snot out of Black Flag on the Wii U and would willingly play it again. I spent way too much time pillaging ships and looping Drunken Sailor ad nauseum. XD

I've never played AC: Rogue but have been interested in it on and off, so that's welcome too in my book.

I do agree that it would be nice to see a re-release of games that precede AC III as the only one of them I've played is the first AC.

Black Flag actually came with my PC when I bought it years ago. But I think I only played like 10 minutes of it.

I've never managed to finish an Assassin's Creed game. Actually I'll go even further. I've never managed to finish a Ubisoft open-world game.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

Can we consolidate threads? Multiple Assassin's Creed Black Flag threads makes holding a conversation about the game near impossible

I've never played an Assassin's Creed game but always been intrigued by them, how the gameplay mechanics work and their take on the open world.

Slightly worried they will disappoint after playing the Witcher 3, so while I will get this I think I'll need to play another genre first as a palate cleanser.

I love the U-Play integration in Rebel Collection.

Up until now, Ubisoft hasn’t really bothered to integrate into their Switch releases. Usually when you click on the U-Play Button it just says, “go to this site on a web browser”.

But this release actually has proper U-Play functionality built in. You can view your account, see challenges and redeem rewards, view stats and leaderboards... it’s great.

Also, the extra content DLC, which is 1.2GB, is a nice touch. Lots of artwork, 2 very high quality videos several minutes long, a manga and Blackbeard’s Journal. That’s the kind of stuff that really makes a game stand out as a top shelf release.

edit
Isn’t it awesome we now have the entire Kenway Saga on Nintendo Switch?

  • Assassin’s Creed III
  • Assassin’s CreedIII: Liberation
  • Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
  • Assassin’s Creed: Freedom Cry
  • Assassin’s Creed: Aveline
  • Assassin’s Creed Rogue

Freedom Cry is such a standout DLC it was actually sold separately as its own game, much like Torna from Xenoblade Chronicles. And Aveline was exclusive to PlayStation/PC, as the main character was from Liberation, a Vita exclusive (at the time).

I’m willing to bet the Ezio trilogy will be next, at which point we’ll have all the classic AC games on a hybrid system.

Can anyone in North America confirm that both games are on the cartridge?

Is there a day-one patch, if so what's the size?

@Magician
Rogue is a download. Black Flag, Freedom Cry and Aveline are all on a 16gb cart. There is no “patch” so to speak. You open the game, and in the launcher it shows both games side by side, with a message on Rogue to download it from the eShop. If you click on the game it automatically starts downloading. Rogue is 7.1GB.

There is also optional bonus content available to download, which includes HD art, high quality videos, a manga and Blackbeard’s journal, and comes in at 1.2GB.

All in all, the grand total for the Rogue download and the optional Extra Content download totals 8.4GB. There is no patch so that is the final size, and the game runs near flawlessly. The resolution is locked 1080p docked / 720p handheld and does not drop, even in busy scenes, nor does the framerate waver in the slightest. This is genuinely one of the finest ports I have ever seen on the Nintendo Switch (Alien Isolation would also be up there).

Oh. And the sound is superb. Now that I’m using headphones I was finally able to discern the lower audio quality of Assassin’s Creed III (still can’t tell without headphones though). But the sound quality of Rebel Collection in headphones is just excellent.

@JaxonH sounds great, definitely picking this and Alien: Isolation up for my Christmas holiday titles. Think I can't go wrong with those choices. This will also be my first Assassin's Creed game so I can finally see what all the fuss is about. I've heard Black Flag is one of the better releases, correct?

It's a shame that the physical releases for both Assassin's Creed releases have been massively botched. Both games could have fit on a 32GB cart (Rebel collection with Rogue, bonus contents, and all language packs included) and considering the fact that they're charging as much for the Rebel Collection as CD Projekt had for The Witcher 3, there really are no excuses. Similarly, the release of III also withheld DLC content and language packs from the cartridge.

Ubisoft is notorious for selling their games at half price (or less) in as little as a month after launch, so it's certainly worth waiting for those who are interested, but unfortunately I will pass on this.

An affiliate link to a Link in need is an affiliate Link indeed.

@Silly_G
They’re not charging as much. Witcher 3 was $60. Assassin’s Creed is $40.

And I don’t disagree that it would’ve been nice to have, but given the fact only one release has ever used a 32gb cart in the west in an entire 3 year span on the market, it’s not exactly standard. It’s hard to blame someone for doing something every other developer does, which indicates it’s not a developer greed problem, there really is cost prohibition.
