Rogue places fans in the shoes of a Templar, controlling former Assassin-turned-Templar Shay Patrick Cormac. Employing the popular naval gameplay from Black Flag, you navigate a ship across the frigid North Atlantic. Other locales you visit include the Appalachian River Valley and a reimagined New York. Shay is an assassin hunter who has to be even more clever to outsmart his sneaky foes. This entry takes place during the Seven Years' War, filling in the gap between Black Flag and Assassin's Creed III. We won't spoil much, but it has a crucial link to the Kenway saga. Our exclusive feature gives more insight into Shay, details how the cold waters are different from Black Flag's Caribbean setting, and discusses the tools Shay has at his disposal for outsmarting assassins. The Seven Years' War is part of what lead to France's financial troubles, and it's hinted that Shay has even deeper ties to Unity.

18th century, North America. Amidst the chaos and violence of the French and Indian War, Shay Patrick Cormac, a fearless young member of the Assassin Brotherhood, undergoes a dark transformation that will forever shape the future of the American colonies. After a dangerous mission gone tragically wrong, Shay turns his back on the Assassins who, in response, attempt to end his life. Cast aside by those he once called brothers, Shay sets out on a mission to wipe out all who turned against him and ultimately become the most feared Assassin hunter in history.


Introducing Assassin's Creed Rogue, the darkest chapter in the Assassin's Creed franchise yet. As Shay, you will experience the slow transformation from Assassin to Assassin Hunter. Follow your own creed and set off on an extraordinary journey through New York City, the wild river valley, and far away to the icy cold waters of the North Atlantic in pursuit of your ultimate goal to bring down the Assassins.

Become the ultimate Assassin Hunter

For the first time ever, experience the Assassin's Creed universe from the perspective of a Templar. Play as Shay who, in addition to the deadly skills of a Master Assassin, also possesses never before seen skills and weapons:

Equip Shay's deadly air rifle for both short- and long-range combat. Distract, eliminate, or confuse your enemies by using a variety of ammunition, including specialised bullets and grenades.
Protect yourself from hidden Assassins with your enhanced Eagle Vision. Use your vision to constantly assess your surroundings and detect Assassins hiding in the shadows, on rooftops, and in the crowds.
Slowly descend into darkness

Witness Shay's transformation from an adventurous Assassin to a grim and committed Templar willing to hunt down his former brothers. Experience first-hand the events that will lead Shay down a dark path and set him on a course that will forever change the fate of the Assassin Brotherhood.

New and improved naval gameplay

Cast off in your ship, The Morrigan, and fight your way through the icy seas of the North Atlantic and the narrow waters of America's river valleys. Assassin's Creed Rogue builds on the award-winning naval experience from Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag with all new gameplay including:

New enemy tactics: Defend yourself from Assassins as they attempt to board your ship and overthrow your crew. Fight them off quickly to avoid losing too many crew members.
New weapons such as burning oil, which leaves a trail of fire behind to burn enemy ships, and the puckle gun, capable of delivering continuous machine gun-like fire.
An arctic world full of possibilities: Ram through ice sheets to discover hidden locations and use icebergs as cover during naval battles.
Vast, diverse open world to explore

Shay's story will allow you to explore three unique environments.

The North Atlantic Ocean: Experience the cold winds and towering icebergs of the arctic in this expansive naval playground.
The River Valley: A large hybrid setting of the American Frontier mixing seamless river navigation and ground exploration.
New York City: One of the most well-known cities in the world, fully recreated as it existed in the 18th century.

I find this to be much more interesting than AC Unity.

Saw the leaked trailer images earlier today, looks pretty damn cool. Assassinating assassins, a nice little switch-up. I would imagine this to be the story of the downfall of the North American Assassins, being as Achilles was the last one in AC3.

 

Although it is a little weird that they're not releasing this on PS4 and Xbox One, feels like a step backwards if I'm honest.

 

But still! Looking forward to it! :)

I'm assuming this is the game that was called Comet before for the Xbox 360 and PS3?

Eh. As soon as I saw that naval combat was going to be a focal point for this game, I lost interest. I hated the naval combat in Black Flag as it was way too frustrating.

I think they will release it on more platforms like they did with AC Liberations.

 

It gives them an excuse to milk 2 AC games a year.

Two installment in the same Franchise being released at the same month,in the same year,man tbh Ubisoft have to limit the Milking unless it will just Over-Exhaust not only the 7yrs old IP but the fans and the Consumers...with that said,both games looks cool and i am having a feeling ROGUE could be turned into it own franchise or a sub-series just because of this Templar Main-Plot.

Naval combat put me off this game. It was cool in III but I got tired of it after some time in IV. Looks cool though, I like the new character. He seems like a badass.

Naval combat again......and "reimagined" NYC from AC3. No thanks.

 

I'll stick with Unity only this year that looks and feels like first two AC games.

Since I own AC: Freedom Cry and only played Black Flag every now and then at my cousin on the pc, I'm quite excited for this one. Unity might be mine when I finally get a PS4 though :)

Personally, I am really liking the ideas in Rogue. Playing as a Templar should be a nice change. It also seems like this may be showing us what happened to the brotherhood in between Connors birth and him becoming an assassin. It was alluded to in 3 so now we might be participating in it. I already preordered Unity but I will definitely be grabbing this as well

I'm not going to consider this milking as AC Unity and AC Rouge are not coming out on the same platforms. I look at this like AC III and AC Liberation. It's better for everyone.

 

Besides the plot description, everything else sounds bad. Rehashed location, and even more naval combat(it works fine but is getting tiresome).

 

I'll be buying AC Unity and just watching a let's play of this.

 

Also the name is terrible.

I can bet anything that they'll release it on PC/PS4/Xbone about 6 months after it launches on PS3/360. It's Ubisoft.

I have two points.

1. Templar? f*ck that, assassins for life.

2. Last-gen only? No thanks.

Wait, so, Rogue is a new game, NEXT to Unity in the AC series? And for last-gen only? They're becoming like EA Games. Just milk it all.

I'm only getting Unity. I got a PS4 for a reason, y'know. So I can play new games on it. Not ports (although TLOU "port" is good)

Sounds really good. It's a shame Haytham isn't the protagonist, but Shay is Templar anyway, so hooray. I'm always in mood for some more naval combat and it looks like it'll blend better with some actual assassinating this time around. The only let down is New York again. AC III's setting was, by far, the most boring in the series, but northern seas more than make up for it, so, worst case scenario, it'll be like GTA V - mediocre urban setting, but great rural environment.

 

For people complaining about milking and rehashes; wait and see. SR IV had its roots as a DLC for SR: TT, but it was an awesome game anyway, even surpassing V in quite some ways. This could end up the same.

Wow I was hoping they stop a yearly release but then they go one worse and release 2 in a year and feed us the same bullsh*t everytime "we been working on it for 3 years"
Oh f*ck of m8

Anyone who thinks ubisoft care about last gen owners, NO, they care about money and thats it.

And also the naval is back? For f*ck sakes its the reason I didnt buy ac4.

So ill pass on this and maybe unity.

Im sick of this franchise which is sad because I loved it so much. I remember how hyped I was for ac2 and what an amazing game it was, ac bro was good aswell then it went downhill.

Ac3 was just overyhyped horrid peice of sh*t!!! Kinda killed the franchise for me

Well, that's too much.

 

But I feel like the naval aspect was always a good thing for the game.

That's the plan. Unity first as I believe that will bring more new things to the series but I'm for sure buying Rouge. It'll be in a sale/price drop by the time I get around to buying Rouge next year though. Unity, Kingdom Hearts 2.5 Remix and Second Son(only just got PS4) will be taking my gaming cash this year. :colgate:

Didn't really expect another AC game to release this year.. Really digging how they're still making content and games for people who still haven't made the jump to the new generation.

 

I'm not sure whether or not I'll purchase it. I will definitely rent it though.

I loved IV but it didnt have that assassin feel to it. Luckily it looks like Unity is going back to the roots of the franchise
