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.
