Ubisoft Announces ‘Assassin’s Creed Rogue’
06 Aug, 2014
Ubisoft has officially announced Assassin’s Creed Rogue, which will launch on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this November shortly after the current-gen series entry, Assassin’s Creed Unity.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue is set during the Seven Years’ War in the mid-18th century. Players will get to explore various North American locations, including the frozen North Atlantic, the Appalachian River Valley and New York. Players will take control of Shay Patrick Cormac, a templar hunting down assassins. Ubisoft confirmed that naval battles will be a component in the game, and also promised new weapons on both land and sea.
“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,” Ubisoft Sofia game director Martin Capel said, in part.
Ubisoft has seven studios developing Rogue. Ubisoft Sofia is leading development, while working with Ubisoft’s Singapore, Monreal, Quebec, Chengdu, Milan and Bucharest studios. It will release on November 11th, two weeks after Assassin’s Creed Unity launches for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
