How to Fix Assassin’s Creed Rogue Crashes, Freezes and Performance Issues


I’m starting to lose track at the number of Assassin’s Creed games and probably I’ll stop caring altogether really soon, but until then we have Assassin’s Creed Rogue, a new game in the series that was just released on PC and, as expected, it didn’t come with a flawless launch. Many gamers are reporting that their game crashes, freezes or gives them headaches because of various performance issues and we are here to try and help you fix all of those problems.

We’re still working to find fixes, if possible, for all the reported problems, but until then, read on and check out our Assassin’s Creed Rogue crashes, freezes and performance issues fixes below!

First of all, if you have any type of problem, you should try the generic fixes: first of, make sure that your computer meets the minimum system requirements (we’ll list them below), and also that you have the latest driver versions installed. Here are the minimum system requirements:

OS: Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8/8.1 (64bit versions)
Processor: Intel Core2Quad Q6600 or AMD Athlon II X4 620
Graphics: NVidia GeForce GTS450 or AMD Radeon HD5670 or Intel HD4600
DirectX: Version 10
Hard Drive: 12 GB available space
Sound Card: DirectX Compatible Sound Card with latest driver

That’s not really bad, so if Assassin’s Creed Rogue still crashes and freezes, you might have to look to more advanced possible fixes:

If the game freezes on start-up or when you see the “Press any key” screen (and you have already updated the drivers), you can try to fix that by turning off Overlay in Uplay. If you have the game on Steam, verify the game’s integrity and if nothing else works, simply shut your internet off and play in offline mode.

Assassin’s Creed Rogue Error 0xc000007b – this can be easily fixed by (re)installing the .NET framework from Windows (click here).

If the game crashes randomly for no apparent reason and you get the “ACC.exe has Stopped Working” message, the cause might be some third party programs like MSI Afterburner or Dxtory – so shutting them off will fix the crashes.

Finally, if you want to skip the intro videos, you have to delete some files (ideally, copy them to a different folder so if you have problems you can bring them back). Go to the install folder of the game and locate the Videos folder. Remove the following files: cr_logo.bik, ubi_logo.bik, abstergo_logo.bik.

But that’s not all! Now you have to go to the Language folder (the language your game is in, usually English) and delete the file warning_disclaimer.bik. That’s it!

These would be the fixes that we have for Assassin’s Creed: Rogue right now, but we’ll make sure to update this article if we find anything extra. You can also let us know of your problems with the game and maybe somebody will be able to help!

Assassin’s Creed Rogue Announced, Cinematic Trailer Inbound


As announced long ago, there were two Assassin’s Creed games on the horizon. With the recent leak of the rumoured ‘Assassin’s Creed Rogue’, Ubisoft has officially unveiled the new game with a fancy cinematic trailer.

As per usual with Ubisoft cinematic trailers, we’re given but a glimpse into the world we will inhabit, with visuals that are not at all representative of the final product.

What this trailer lacks in originality, it makes up for in conciseness and style.

“Assassin’s Creed Rogue is a brand new chapter in the blockbuster Assassin’s Creed universe. Play as Shay, an Assassin who finds himself at a crossroads and ultimately turns his back on The Brotherhood in order to hunt them down. Assassin’s Creed Rogue will be available exclusively on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 November 11th.”

As someone who appreciates the tact Ubisoft has when dealing with sensitive subjects in the Creed franchise, and the worlds that they so effortlessly build, I’m still disappointed to see yet another game being rushed out the door. That said, playing as a Templar should be quite entertaining, let’s just hope that the gameplay has been refined like Unity has suggested.
