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. Get your first look at Shay and his mission in the announcement trailer for Assassin’s Creed Rogue.

 
Set in the 18th century during the Seven Years War, Rogue completes the North America saga that began with Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag. From loyal Assassin brother to the Templar’s favored hunter, Shay will travel through the arctic North Atlantic Ocean, the Appalachian River Valley and a bustling New York City on his mission to destroy the Assassins.

Assassin's Creed Rogue Announced

In addition to the new environments, Shay will have access to some never-before-seen weapons as well as a new ship, The Morrigan, to help him take on threats on the open ocean with the return of naval gameplay.

Arm yourself with Shay’s air rifle and the variety of ammunition available. Whether you’re using specialized bullets or grenades, the gun is excellent for both short- and long-range combat. The Morrigan also comes equipped with a new set of tools to help you take on enemies in the frigid North Atlantic Ocean, including the puckle gun (a machine gun-like weapon) and burning oil, which creates a trail of fire behind your vessel. Be ready to defend your ship, as Assassins will be able to board you.

Assassin's Creed Rogue Announced

The frigid Northern temperatures mean you’ll be ramming your way through fields of ice to find hidden locations, and the many icebergs could provide cover in battle, or lead to a nasty scrape should you crash into one. Much like in Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag, you’ll be able to hop seamlessly from land to sea and back again, so be ready to explore but be wary of the wildlife.

“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,” says Martin Capel, Game Director, Ubisoft Sofia. Assassin’s Creed Rogue is being developed by Ubisoft Sofia, in collaboration with Ubisoft’s Singapore, Montreal, Quebec, Chengdu, Milan and Bucharest studios, and will release exclusively on Xbox 360 and PS3 on November 11 globally (November 12 for France).

I love AC but can not imagine playing a temp. .will pass on rouge .

I have a 360 if unity is only going to be out in x box 1 guess I will have to just replay my fav. but ub is going to lose a lot of money with folks that do not have xb1

I feel this game should be developed on current gen then ported to past gen. Mostly because it'll look so much better and developers will have so much more to work with. To the people saying "we got unity" well why can't we have this too? I mean I bought xbox one so I can play all new games in a better resolution with better frame rates. Why should I have to buy this for my past gen consoles? There is no logical reason behind this, non unless Ubisoft can address, I can come to no conclusion.

i like all the assassin creed that are out so far but im pretty disappointed when i read that shay patrick has to kill conner from AC3. this in my opinion but this had to be the only down fall of AC rouge, conner was one of the best story line and character i had played. also i would like to NOTE, I THINK UBISOFT DID MAKE THE DECISION TO MAKE ROUGE FOR PS3. WHEN UNITY COME OUT FOR PS4 OTHER GAMERS INCLUDING MYSELF DIDNT MAKE A HUGE DEAL ABOUT THIS.NOW EVERYONE HAS A PIECE OF AC TO PLAY. EITHER WAY UNITY COMES WITH CUSTOMIZATION AND CO-OP SO I DONT UNDRSTAND THE BIG FUSS AND IDIOTIC VIDEOS SAYING PS4 HAS THE RIGHT TO HAVE ROUGE AS ALSO AND LEAVE PS3 THE DARK ( OH AND THIS WAS BOUND TO HAPPEN, PEOPLE STILL HAVE THERE GAMECUBES ,NINTENDO 64 ETC. CONSULES WHICH ARE WAY MORE DATED THEN THE PS3. I THINK IF YOU SOLD YOUR PS3 JUST TO "UPGRADE" TO THE PS4 INSTEAD OF KEEPING BOTH SYSTEMS BECAUSE THERE ARE TONS OF MORE GAMES COMING OUT ON THE PS3 AS WELL THE PS4 SYSTEM.) come on people , be smart and suck it up.

I wanted this game but the more I think about it, the more I feel like AC: Rogue is just a copy of AC: Black Flag with like 2-3 weeks worth of minor adjustments. I just don't see how this is a $60 game especially since Unity is the same price and that game was worked on for at least 2-3 years that doesn't feel like a copy & paste. AC Rogue just feels more like an expensive $60 DLC for Black Flag. Well that and playing as a templar just doesn't sound too fun. There I had to say it :)

I keep seeing you get unity, you get unity.. right and we should have right as well to all AC games that are coming out we spent the money to have the new shit. It should come out on both because some ppl also traded their ps3 and games to purchase the ps4! So to not understand why we'd be upset is just idiocy. It's not our fault your playing something from the last generation so don't get pissy when the ppl that are still spending money on Sony products are pissed we got shafted because ppl just like that would be crying around they didn't get another ac game before all went to next gen. It's been over a year now if you haven't switched you shouldn't expect anything what other systems still brought out major name games for a system a year obsolete? That's what I wanna know.

Hinged my entire PS4 buying decision on what Ubi planned to do with the new AC. Sold my PS3 to get the 4 once Ubi made the official announcement -smart decision on my part. But I held onto my 360 just in case the mysterious last-gen AC game was more than rumor, and whaddaya know, another smart decision on my part. Can't wait till later this fall...

I imagine that this move to make AC Rogue exclusively for PS3 and Xbox 360 is going to cost Ubisoft not just in revenue but also in rapport with the fans. Wow, good job, Ubi.

Who the fuck gets a Wii U. Grow a pair and either buy 360/PS3 or Xbox One/PS4. Calm your tits and sell that piece of shit console. And yes ubisoft should make them for PC.

I would love to play as a Templar... in a different series under "Assassin's Creed" Brand like "Templar's Order" or some thing. The brand should be like, Templar's Order with small caption says the assassin's creed series, know what I mean?

Thanks though, guys. Many of you have reminded me why I assiduously avoid anything with MMO, multiplayer, social media connectivity etc. in the title.

From the very first AC title, there has been a sense of moral ambiguity about the Templar/assassin dichotomy. Sure, some of the Templars have been almost comic book villains, but think about your own actions as Altair, Ezio, Connor or Edward in the games. How many hundreds of thousands have you killed indiscriminately on the streets of Florence, Venice, Rome, Boston etc.?

I can think of only a few conflicts (in the real world) where one side is wholy in the right and even then, lines have been blurred. So stop whining and asking for it to be 'Templar's Creed' or whatever and just enjoy what will doubtless be another enjoyable title.

And as for this moaning about consoles and pc/ previous and next gen, could we all just give it a rest too? As a PC gamer I felt very hard done by when Xbox had Halo and Red Dead for instance and there was no PC port. I found an ingenious solution which will clearly confound and amaze some of you; I bought an Xbox 360 which now sits alongside my pc. And when Unity and the Witcher 3 release dates come closer, I'll possibly invest in an Xbox One or PS4. Simple.

Here endeth the rant.

I'm sorry but why only for ps3 and the so called horrible console known as 360 why not for ps4 or the other terrible name and features Xbox one. And a templar!!!!??? Might as well call it templars creed. I don't like what they are trying to do. Assassins creed has been my favorite game of all time. Why play as a ttemplar? IIt has to be for ps4 Xbox . Or PC also. What exactly is ubisoft trying to accomplish or prove. Make it for xbox . And ps4 at least. but playing a templar bugs me way to much. Please put back assassins you want to stop templars not help them it has never been a part of assassins creed and it should never be a part of it.

I have typed this same message about 3 times but here it goes:

There will be a next gen remake in the future. Give it about six months and there will be a remake. Think about Liberation. I wish I could say the same for Unity and old gen getting a remake.

I have played every single AC ( Not counting Liberation... ) and I would like not to have to get a Next gen to play Unity...

I bought a PS4 - and have no interest in Unity. Very let down in this being exclusive to the older generation - I want more Naval Combat on my PS4 & I should not have to buy new games for my 360, which I've been using less and less. Too bad. I guess I won't be getting any AC game and I'll be just waiting to see what happens down the road.

i personally love the idea of being a templar instead of an assassin. being an antihero is so much more fun. plus i like the red and black. and the templar sword. although one thing im kind of interested in is what if one of the assassins you hunt is edward? the identity of whoever kills him isnt stated

I'm really interested in this game. Is there going to be a North American Collector's Edition? I see that there is one for other parts of the world, but none so far for USA or NA.

After seeing the Rogue trailer I got to admit I like Unity even more. At least than you get to play as an Assassin and not have to deal with more of the naval crap.

The optional naval missions with AC 3 and the full time naval with Black Flag was cool and all but more of it in Rogue? Not only that but playing as a Templar too. This must be a punishment for those who don't want to or can't afford to get a current gen system.

To the PC gamers.. You have assassin creed unity why do you always want everything :/ it's like a ps4/Xbox 1 person asking for this game because it's graphically capable. Master race my arse... More like beggers.

The cynic in me would expect a "remastered" version of this to come out for PS4 / XBO early next year... the other part of me is just excited - looks awesome.

Okay TBH i am really starting to dislike assassins creed because they are changing the story all together the fact you play as a templar this is wrong.... Ive been playing assassins creed since the first one and love playing as an ASSASSIN! To hunt down templars not to play as a templar and hunting assassins...... The title of the game is ASSASSINS CREED! Not TEMPLAR CREED change the goddamn. Title of the game if youre playing as a templar RANT OVER

Whoa, okay... Look, man or woman, yes, people are gonna be upset about platform choices, but it doesn't mean that you gotta hate on the fans, right? It's not like they're the ones calling the shots. C'est la vie! So, I personally think that it might be nicer to share in our joys and sorrows together and lament the marketing choices of Ubisoft.

I can tell you exactly the same things about your consoles but if you just want to insult a console and many players for fun and if even don't have any real argument, so shut up 'cause nobody needs you here.

You f*****g get unity on xbox 1 and ps4, it looks awesome. Us last gen gamers don't get it. This is just a side story aimed at keeping us happy until we purchase a next gen console, I bet next year AC will only be available on PC, PS4 and Xbox 1.

Not possible, Edward died on 1735 but Shay born in 1731 (According to the Wiki)

Basically he's 4 years old roughly.

I like the red and black too :D... It is outlined in a Black Flag book made before the game that Edward was killed by Mercs hired by the Templars... Don't quote me on that though...

You do know that this game will be following the Kenway family right. It will probably be about how the Kenways went from being in the creed(black flag) shay betraying the creed and becoming a Templar . Though shay is not a Kenway, he may play a big role in why Edward Kenway ended up being a templar not an assassin. And its a pretty cool idea being an assassin of assassins. sounds way more deadlier.
