Today, Ubisoft announced that a new Ass Creed game, titled Assassin’s Creed Rogue, is coming out this November 11th in North America, for the PS3 and 360.
Set during the Seven Years War, Rogue sees players exploring a good amount of North America, including the North Atlantic, the Appalachian River Valley, and New York. Gamers will take on the role of one Shay Patrick Cormac, a man betrayed by the Brotherhood who becomes a Templar and dedicates his life to hunting Assassins. Naval gameplay is back, as is a new ship to control named the Morrigan, so players have plenty of options at their disposal to murder the clan we grew to love and have become so attached to.
Martin Capel, game director at Ubisoft Sofia, shared these few words regarding why Rogue is only on last gen systems:
“We know that there are many Assassin’s Creed fans with Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles who want to get their hands on a new Assassin’s Creed game this year. Assassin’s Creed Rogue completes the North American saga started with Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag and gives previous-generation console owners an exclusive opportunity to experience fan-requested features, such as playing as a Templar.”
I never wanted to play as no dirty, EVIL Templars, but it is nice to see that option be made available to all the heathens out there that hate the righteous Assassins. More info on both Assassin’s Creed Rogue and the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Unity can be found in the latest Game Informer. Check out more Rogue info at its website, as well as a leafy trailer below. Gotta love that accent!
