Assassin's Creed Rogue Infiltrating PS3 and 360 on November 11
When Assassin's Creed Unity was announced for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, word got out that a last-gen Assassin's Creed game was also in the works, codenamed Comet. Today, Ubisoft has officially announced Assassin's Creed Rogue, coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 worldwide on November 11 (two weeks after Unity). Whereas Unity takes place in 18th century Paris during the French Revolution, Rogue concludes the North American trilogy, transporting us to new locations across North America during the Seven Years War, also in the 18th century. These locations include "the frozen North Atlantic, the Appalachian River Valley and New York," and the game will feature a naval component with a new ship called the Morrigan.
Assassin's Creed Rogue marks the first time players will be able to take on the role of a Templar. "After a mission for the Assassin Brotherhood goes terribly wrong, Shay Patrick Cormac leaves the Order, prompting his former brothers to make an attempt on his life. Of course, what doesn’t kill you turns you into a hunter. Now Shay is on a path of vengeance, tracking down the Assassins and systematically eliminating them. Assassin’s Creed Rogue will be the darkest chapter in the franchise as you take off your Assassin hood and step into the role of a Templar."
Assassin's Creed Rogue is being developed by Ubisoft Sofia, in collaboration with Ubisoft's Singapore, Montreal, Quebec, Chengdu, Milan, and Bucharest studios. Pre-ordering grants you the Ultimate Hunter Pack (an exclusive collection of Templar weapons and items) and The Siege of Fort de Sable Mission (a bonus fort-raiding mission). The standard edition is priced at $59.99. A collector's edition will also be available with an art-book, three lithographs, the original soundtrack, and two additional single player missions, but pricing was not disclosed. Of course, the real question is, how long before an "HD Version" comes to PC, PS4, and XBO? We all know it's going to happen eventually; it's a matter of when, not if.
