Ubisoft have officially announced the newest addition in the Assassin’s Creed series with a new cinematic trailer.
Dubbed Assassin’s Creed Rogue the game puts you into the role of a Templar seeking revenge on the assassins that have wronged you.
Betrayal can do terrible things to a person’s psyche. 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.
According to Ubisoft’s blog the game is set inbetween the events of Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed IV : Black Flag, completing the North American Saga.
The game will include new weapons and a new ship, Morrigan, which will be equipped with a puckle gun (a machine gun-like weapon) and burning oil, which creates a trail of fire behind your ship.
Ubisoft Sophia is developing the game in collaboration with Ubisoft’s Montreal, Quebec, Singapore, Chengdu, Bucharest and Milan studios.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue has been set for release on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 on November 11 globally, a couple of weeks after the release for Assassin’s Creed Unity which is exclusive for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC.
