Assassin's Creed Rogue Revealed

By Marc Caccamise, 2 years ago
Today, Ubisoft officially revealed the latest game to join the Assassin's Creed franchise, Assassin's Creed Rogue. Coming to the Xbox 360 this November, Rogue is the final form of what has long been code-named Assassin's Creed Comet. The game is being developed by Ubisoft Sofia, in collaboration with Ubisoft Singapore, Montreal, Quebec, Chengdu, Milan and Bucharest.

In Assassin's Creed Rogue you fill the shoes of Shay Patrick Cormac, a former Assassin who turns Templar after a mission for the Assassin's Brotherhood doesn't go quite according to plan. Since the Assassins attempt to eliminate Cormac for leaving the Order, he is now on a mission to hunt down his former brothers and kill them. Ubisoft has described Rogue as being "the darkest chapter in the franchise," as you step into the role of a Templar.

The game is set during the Seven Years' War, or as some may know it, the French and Indian War. Rogue will serve to bridge together the North America saga which began in the time period of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and leads into Assassin's Creed III. The conflict involved many of the world powers at the time, and had widespread effects across the globe. Cormac will travel through the Appalachian River Valley, New York City, and up into the arctic of the North Atlantic Ocean on his journey. The Seven Years' War also has ties to the French Revolution, which is the central setting of Assassin's Creed Unity.

Traversing through the North Atlantic will function much like the naval exploration of Black Flag. Players will be able to seamlessly hop off Cormac's ship, The Morrigan, to explore and then set sail again without any break in the action. The Morrigan will be outfitted with new types of weapons, such as the puckle gun, which is described as a machine gun-like weapon, and burning oil which creates a trail of fire behind your ship. Cormac will wield an air rifle, which has a variety of ammunition including specialized bullets and grenades, and is effective for both short- and long-range combat. It's a good thing you'll be better equipped, because it sounds like enemies will now have the ability to board your ship, instead of always the other way around.

Assassin's Creed Rogue will release two weeks after Unity, on November 11th worldwide (November 12th in France) on the Xbox 360.
