Update #2: In the wake of the Acassin’s Creed Rogue leaks from earlier today Ubisoft has officially released the announcement trailer for the game on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Rogue is being developed by Ubisoft Sofia but Ubisoft will be using their traditional umbrella development process with collaborations from Ubisoft Singapore, Quebec, Montreal, Milan, Bucharest, and Chengdu.
In a statement released to the public today Ubisoft Sofia director Martin Capel stated that the game will be the culmination of the North American plot line started in Assassins Creed 3 in what would be the “darkest chapter in the franchise.” Martin also says that the game will add many new fan requested features, but he only specified that playing as a Templar would be one.
Here is the official trailer for Assassin’s Creed Rogue,
Update: the trailer has since been removed by Ubisoft.
Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, the upcoming game for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, has had some screens and a trailer leaked online.
Assassin’s Creed: Rogue will see the same blend of land and ship-based gameplay as Assassin’s Creed 4. Though unconfirmed, it is thought that another large patch of the Atlantic will be open for exploration.
Rogue was previously hinted at by Ubisoft’s Yves Guillemot as a way for fans without next-gen consoles to play a new Assassin’s Creed game this year; Rogue is rumored to follow the events of Assassin’s Creed 4, and is expected to be a sort of Assassin’s Creed 4.5. There is however, no known connection to the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Unity, due for a November release on next-gen consoles.
As previous rumors have suggested, the game’s main character appears to be a Templar – he is seen killing a hooded Assassin in what appears to be the Arctic.
Like every Assassin’s Creed title since Assassin’s Creed 2, Rogue will have pre-order DLC. The Ultimate Hunter Pack is set to include new weapons, ship sails and a ship wheel to enhance your customization. There’s also a mission involving the Siege of Fort de Sable.
Ubisoft have refused to comment, stating that “Ubisoft doesn’t comment on rumors and speculations”. However, we expect to hear more at Gamescom next week, and will keep you posted as news emerges.
