While February and March are usually considered to be among the slower months for game releases, it has been a pretty busy 2018 thus far. Monster Hunter World and the Shadow of the Colossus remaster dropped last month and March will be seeing the next entry in the Far Cry series, Microsoft’s new Sea of Thieves IP and a long, lost Assassin’s Creed title get some new life. And don’t forget about the Devil May Cry remaster collection and Kirby Star Allies for Switch.
All that and more in March 2018’s best video game releases below:
Assassin’s Creed Rogue: Remastered PS4/Xbox One – Mar 20th
After the successful launch of Assassin’s Creed: Origins in late 2017, Ubisoft is looking to extend the series into 2018 with the remastered version of Assassin’s Creed Rogue. The game snuck under the radar when it originally released simultaneously alongside Assassin’s Creed: Unity in 2014. While Unity was the big shiny new release for the, at the time, new generation hardware, Rogue released as the sequel to Black Flag for PS3 and Xbox 360. While it in fact reviewed much better than Unity ever did, many people didn’t get a chance to play it. So now’s your chance.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue, the darkest chapter of the Brotherhood, will now be remastered in higher quality and available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4! Available on March 20th.
Not only was it the sequel to one of the series most popular titles in Black Flag, but also a prequel to 2012’s Assassin’s Creed III. It follows the story of an assassin-turned-templar during the Seven Years’ War.
