Today Ubisoft released two Assassin’s Creed titles: Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed Rogue. While owners of current-gen consoles get to check out Paris in Unity, last-generation gamers get to play on the Templar side in Rogue. To help support Rogue, Ubisoft has released a launch trailer for the game.
The trailer gives players a taste of what to expect from Assassin’s Creed Rogue. In Rogue, players take control of Shay Patrick Cormac, a former Assassin. Cormac turns his back on the Brotherhood, and joins the Templar cause, hunting down his former brothers. Consisting of a single-player experience, Rogue ties in closely with Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue takes place in the 18th century, during the Seven Years’ War. Players will have multiple locations in America to explore, including the frozen North Atlantic, the Appalachian River Valley, and New York. Rogue lets players experience the Assassin’s Creed universe from the other side as a Templar. We see Cormac’s betrayal, and get to play from a different perspective as he hunts down those that he once followed.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue is available for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Assassin’s Creed Unity released alongside it for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Rogue will release on PC in early 2015.
