I bet game companies hate leaks, they force their hands and make them rush out announcements. Today we had the leak for Assassin’s Creed: Rogue so Ubisoft had to go and make it official.
The Rogue comes from protagonist Shay Patric Cormack, a former Assassin turned bloody Templar after the Brotherhood betrayed him. He becomes an Assassin hunter but are his ends more than just revenge? Since he’s a turned Assassin he’ll have all the training of the Assassins like Eagle Vision and parkour but new tools like an air rifle and special grenades to help him hunt or avoid his fellow brothers.
The game is taking place in the frigid waters of the North Atlantic and along the North American continent even up the Arctic Circle. Naval warfare is making a come back with new enemy tactics, weapons and the Titanic’s BFF, icebergs. Our Rogue will get himself a fancy new ship named the Morrigan to sail the high seas in. Here’s hoping they do something like Kenway’s Fleet but don’t hide it behind the Xbox Live wall.
Assassin’s Creed: Rogue is scheduled to come out exclusively for the Xbox 360 and Ps3 November 11th. No word on PC but considering how they’re already getting Unity, I doubt it.
