The latest edition of Game Informer has officially confirmed Assassin’s Creed Rogue. We learned of the game earlier today when screens and a video leaked onto Facebook. The only platform that the game has been confirmed for so far is the Xbox 360, so there’s a chance that the game could come to Wii U. Hopefully we will find out whether Wii U owners can get their hands on the game soon. Here’s the latest details which come direct from Game Informer.
Rogue places fans in the shoes of a Templar, controlling former Assassin-turned-Templar Shay Patrick Cormac. Employing the popular naval gameplay from Black Flag, you navigate a ship across the frigid North Atlantic. Other locales you visit include the Appalachian River Valley and a reimagined New York. Shay is an assassin hunter who has to be even more clever to outsmart his sneaky foes. This entry takes place during the Seven Years’ War, filling in the gap between Black Flag and Assassin’s Creed III. We won’t spoil much, but it has a crucial link to the Kenway saga. Our exclusive feature gives more insight into Shay, details how the cold waters are different from Black Flag’s Caribbean setting, and discusses the tools Shay has at his disposal for outsmarting assassins. The Seven Years’ War is part of what lead to France’s financial troubles, and it’s hinted that Shay has even deeper ties to Unity.
Yesterday, the executive editor of Game Informer, Andrew Reiner, teased that the Game Informer cover game would be announced today. Well it turns out the game is Battleborn for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Battleborn is described as a first-person multiplayer game. The new IP is “intergalactic first-person battle arena” which borrows the “minion smashing and fast levelling”. The developer is Gearbox who are the team behind Borderlands.
Andrew Reiner, executive editor of Game Informer, has teased on Twitter that we should expect the cover reveal for August to be posted online tomorrow. There’s plenty of speculation going around regarding what to expect. Quite a few people have pledged their bets on Gears of War creator Cliffy B’s new project, which he has come out of retirement for. What would you like to see revealed by Game Informer tomorrow?
We knew something was coming today after both Game Informer and Epic Games teased their fans on Twitter yesterday. It turns out the grand re-reveal is for Epic’s free-to-play PC game Fortnite running on Unreal Engine 4. Epic hasn’t announced if it’s PC only, or if it’s also coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
“Fortnite features the cooperative third-person shooter core Epic Games is known for, but rather than throwing you into scripted events and corridors, the game challenges you to explore the environment for resources and build fortresses while fending off waves of attackers at the same time. With an RPG-like progression system, Diablo-like looting, multiple campaigns of varying lengths, procedurally generated worlds, and the promise of player vs. player battles, Epic is offering plenty of replayability that it hopes will provide the game with a long lifecycle.”
Andrew Reiner, executive editor of Game Informer, has revealed on Twitter that he will be revealing their cover story tomorrow. Speculation is rife regarding which game will grace the cover, but the general consensus seems to be that it will be Assassin’s Creed. We already know that Assassin’s Creed Unity is coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, while Assassin’s Creed Comet will apparently be coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A Wii U version seems to be up in the air. What would you like to see?
