Players who haven’t made the jump from last-gen to current-gen consoles might have felt left out over the reveals for Assassin’s Creed: Unity. But don’t worry, PS3 and Xbox 360 owners, because Ubisoft hasn’t abandoned you yet.
Assassin’s Creed: Rogue is a twist on the familiar franchise. Instead of playing an Assassin, or a character who becomes an Assassin through a family tragedy, you’ll be playing an Assassin-turned-Templar in the 18th century, aiding the British against the French. Meet Shay, a man who became torn between two paths and in the end, chose to turn his back on the Brotherhood.
The gameplay trailer focuses a great deal on the naval combat, but a couple of things are clear: The game is beautiful, and Ubisoft hasn’t forgotten what the last-gen consoles are capable of. The game will take place through multiple locations, including the Arctic, so players will be able to witness beautiful sights such as the northern lights.
You know, when you’re not sinking the British ships and taking out the gang ships sent after you by the Assassin’s you betrayed.
Assassin’s Creed: Rogue will release November 11th for PS3 and Xbox 360.
