After months of speculation we finally know a little bit more about the forthcoming Assassin’s Creed gamer for Xbox 360 and PS3: What we now know will be called Assassin’s Creed: Rogue.
Here’s Microsoft’s description of what the game will entail:
“Become the ultimate Assassin Hunter in Assassinâ€™s Creed Rogue. As Shay youâ€™ll hunt those you previously called brothers from the streets of New York City to the frozen and fractured glacial landscapes of the Arctic Circle. Is Shay a traitor, rebel, renegade or something else entirely? Only one thing is certain, he follows his own creed.”
Apparently the game will tie together Assassin’s Creed 3/4 and the forthcoming Assassin’s Creed: Unity, which is being made exclusively for the new consoles. It is apparently set to take place during the Seven Years War – which some historians claim is the real first world war, as it drew in such a wide range of world powers. Given the transatlantic nature of the war, could that be a further indication this is the pirate game there has been much speculation about?
Here’s the teaser trailer:
The game is due to hit on November 11th on Xbox 360 and PS3. Or of course you can wait a year for the inevitable PS4/Xbox One “Remastered” edition.
