Assassin’s Creed: The Rebel Collection

Two more Assassin’s Creed games recently made their way to Switch. Ubisoft launched Assassin’s Creed: The Rebel Collection, which contains Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Assassin’s Creed Rogue.

Digital Foundry published a video today examining Assassin’s Creed: The Rebel Collection from a technical perspective. We have a summary of tidbits shared below.

System: Switch
Release date: December 6, 2019
Developer: Ubisoft
Publisher: Ubisoft

Back in May, Ubisoft pulled a rather curious move by releasing Assassin’s Creed III – and its counterpart, Liberation – for the Switch. The port was widely criticized for being poorly optimized and somewhat irrelevant, especially considering the leaps and bounds that the franchise had made in scope and polish since the game’s original release. Many reviewers (myself included) longed to see the series’ fourth entry, Black Flag, released for the Switch instead – albeit without the low frame rate and ropey audio present in Assassin’s Creed III. Fast forward to today, and Ubisoft has only gone and done, well, exactly that.

YouTuber ElAnalistaDeBits has put together a video showing how Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag stacks up on Switch, PS4, and PS3. Give the video comparison a look below.

Assassin’s Creed Rogue, as part of the Assassin’s Creed: Rebel Collection, is out now on Switch. View some footage of the game below.

As part of Assassin’s Creed: The Rebel Collection, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will arrive on Switch tomorrow. Check out some footage below.

Ubisoft is bringing Assassin’s Creed: The Rebel Collection to Switch in December. It’ll include two games: Assassin’s Creed IV and Assassin’s Creed Rogue.

Unfortunately, if you were hoping to get both games on a physical cartridge, you might be out of luck. The game’s Spanish boxart has a banner stating that Assassin’s Creed IV comes on the cartridge whereas Rogue is offered as a download code. We’d assume that this is the case worldwide, but we’ll let you know if any additional information comes in.
