New Assassin’s Creed Rogue Details Revealed In Game Infomer (Video)

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.

        No way, just because something isn’t coming to a Nintendo platform doesn’t mean it’s not news. The simple fact that something ISN’T coming to the Wii U or 3DS IS news. I appreciate when there is a cover reveal announcement because there is a slim chance the game could be coming to Nintendo platforms, so when it is finally announced, if MNN didn’t report on it because it’s not coming to the Big N’s platforms we’d all be left wondering what it was.

        Plus AssCreed has typically been released on Nintendo’s platforms, so to see it suddenly stop IS in fact Nintendo news.

        1. I disagree. A lot of EA and Ubisoft franchises have had 1 game on a Nintendo platform and will likely have no more. Do we need to know about all of those too? Do we need to know about Mass Effect 4? 5? 6? Do we need to know about every new game that a developer who has developed for a Nintendo platform is making but is not hitting a Nintendo platform? The answer is no. No we do not. It is not Nintendo news if it does not involve Nintendo.

            You’re stuck in a box my friend. What happens when there isn’t Nintendo specific news? We get an article drought, that’s no good. It’s better to know who and what is neglecting Nintendo platforms then be oblivious.

  1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

    Why bother with another copy and waste rehash which the Ubisians admitted wanting to milk these franchise yearly…

      Well, they did say that they are rebuilding from the ground up in these two installments. So, we’ll get a whole new set of glitches, clunky controls, and chore like gameplay disguised as “missions”.

      Really couldn’t get into these games… and I gave it the ol’ college try.

  2. I would pass this. Don’t feel like buying it just for sake of supporting.
    I tried to get in to AC 3 and 4, but simply could not.

      Agreed, I really tried to get into Black Flag but I just couldn’t… Felt like a chore to play it. I thought it might be like Arkham Asylum in a small way but I actually had fun with all the Arkham games, Black Flag wasn’t fun at all for me.

  3. Nintendo is my Blood

    Things in AC starting going downhill after Brotherhood, it became so repetitive really fast

    If they make an AC game taking place during WW2 I’ll bite
    I even have a whole scenario of how they can do it

  4. The advantage that it is an annual game is that it gets cheap quickly. Whether it is on Wii U or not I will wait until next year to buy it, my Wii U will have a lot of work with Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 1 & 2, Xenoblade, Super Smash Bros, and finishing Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8 and Super Mario 3D World, plus some indies like Shovel Knight and some GBA Virtual Console games.

  5. Really wish they would drop the sailing in this game. It’s such a bore, the whole time I was playing AC 4 I was wishing I was playing Wind Waker instead.

  7. played AC1,AC2,brotherhood and revelation. I haven’t play AC3 (despite the fact I got the Wii U version) and I reall don’t feel like playing when pirate of Caribbean meet AC. Was so devastated at the end of revelation when I saw Altair that playing any sequel will be pointless.

  8. Stay right on the Xbox 360 & maybe go to the PS3 but stay away from the Wii U. If this game only hits the last gen of consoles & hits the Wii U, we’ll be hearing it from the loser squad that the Wii U is confirmed as last gen again. Not like some of them aren’t still saying it but that kind of news might just make them become more vocal again.
