Assassin's Creed Rogue: First Look

Posted by The Daily Zombies Tuesday, August 5, 2014

For the first time ever, play the role of the Knights Templar in the newly-announced next chapter of Ubisoft's flagship video game series, Assassin's Creed Rogue. 

While Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed series has long been known in the industry for its prolific entries across multiple gaming platforms, this year might just present the biggest challenge to the critically acclaimed action-adventure open world stealth video game series. Apart from Assassin's Creed Unity, the earlier-announced successor to last year's Assassin's Creed: Black Flag that will be set during the French Revolution returning to the series' signature melee action / stealth gameplay, Ubisoft has announced another new title that will however embraced Black Flag's naval combat element. 

Entitled Assassin's Creed Rogue, the eighth major installment of the franchise will be released on Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3 in November while Unity, the seventh major installment will be targeting the next-gen consoles in October with releases on Microsoft Windows, Xbox One and Sony PlayStation 4. As mentioned earlier, the challenge lies in a potential case of Ubisoft overexposing its biggest franchise and milking it to its demise with not one but two major releases with only a month's difference. With that said, since both titles contained drastically distinctive gameplay elements and more importantly, targetting two different audiences, Ubisoft might just be able to pull this off.

Speaking of drastic, Rogue will allow players to step into the shoe of a Templar for the first time with a story arc focusing on a new protagonist, Shay Cormac, an Assassin-turned-Templar on a vengeful hunt on his order. With no further ado, check out the freshly-unveiled announcement trailer right below.

And here are the key art and images released together with the announcement.

Here are details from the press release:

Today, Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed Rogue, an exciting new installment in the franchise currently in development for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, will be available worldwide on November 11.

Assassin’s Creed Rogue is being developed by Ubisoft Sofia, in collaboration with Ubisoft’s Singapore, Montreal, Quebec, Chengdu, Milan and Bucharest studios. Set in the middle of the 18th century during the Seven Years War, Assassin’s Creed Rogue gives players new locations across North America to explore, including the frozen North Atlantic, the Appalachian River Valley and New York. In Assassin’s Creed Rogue, players experience the Assassin’s Creed universe through the eyes of a Templar. As Shay Patrick Cormac, players suffer the brotherhood’s betrayal and transform into an Assassin hunter.

The acclaimed naval components from previous Assassin’s Creed games have been enhanced in Assassin’s Creed Rogue. The game also gives players new weapons to use on both land and sea in pursuit of taking down the Assassins, including a new ship called the Morrigan.

“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,” says Martin Capel, game director, Ubisoft Sofia. “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.”
