Ubisoft releases official synopsis, screenshots and trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Rogue
After the earlier trailer leak, Ubisoft has now officially announced the release of the PS3 and Xbox 360 exclusive Assassin’s Creed game, Assassin’s Creed: Rogue. As previously reported, the game will be released on November 11 in North America.
The new game is being developed by Ubisoft Sofia along with Ubisoft’s studios in Singapore, Montreal, Quebec, Chengdu, Milan and Bucharest. The story for the new game is set in the middle of the 1700s and offers new locations to explore in North America, including the frozen North Atlantic, the Appalachian River Valley, and New York. However, instead of an Assassin, players will portray a Templar, Shay Patrick Cormac. Cormac suffers a great betrayal from the Assassin’s Brotherhood and becomes an Assassin hunter.
According to Ubisoft, the game will utilize the naval components from Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. In addition, the game will offer new weapons on both land and sea and a new ship called the Morrigan.
Speaking on the announcement, game director Martin Capel said: “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.”
Bob Puzon, GameStop SVP of merchandising added: “The Assassin’s Creed series is a staple within the gaming industry, driving gamers to GameStop stores with each new release. Assassin’s Creed Rogue on Xbox 360 and PS3 lets GameStop bring spectacular gameplay to our previous-generation customers.”
