UPDATE: Official trailer and first official screens released

The first footage has leaked of an Assassin’s Creed Rogue trailer, confirming not only that the game exists but also that it will be releasing exclusively on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on November 11th.

Ubisoft HQ is leakier than the Jackdaw after a few rounds with El Impoluto, with this latest trailer appearing to confirm that Assassin’s Creed Rogue will be following in the piratical footsteps of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, allowing you to commandeer a ship once more as you plunder the American coastline.

Originally known under the codename Assassin’s Creed Comet, Assassin’s Creed Rogue will have players buccaneering up and down the Atlantic Coast as a Templar sailor. Most intriguing of all is the sight of icebergs, suggesting Assassin’s Creed Rogue might well take in the chilly northern expanse of water off the coast of Canada.

UPDATE: Developed by Ubisoft Sofia, Assassin's Creed Rogue takes place in 18th century Americas, during the Seven Years war. In a dramatic shift fro the series players will be able to explore the frozen North Atlantic, the Appalachian River Valley, and of course New York. 

Taking on the role of Shay Patrick Cormack, a Templar, the player suffers a betrayal from the brotherhood and becomes and Assassin hunter out for revenge. Sea battles are back once more, with players getting to grips with the ship Morrigan, in hectic sea battles. 

"We know that there are many Assassin's Creed fans with Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles who want to get their hands on a new Assassin's Creed game this year," says Martin Capel, game director "Assassin's Creed Rogue completes the North American saga started with Assassin's Creed III and Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag and gives previous generation console owners an exclusive opportunity to experience fan-requested features, such as playing as a Templar."

Of course Assassin’s Creed Rogue isn’t the only AC game arriving this year, with Assassin’s Creed Unity arriving just two weeks before on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Unity will be the fully-fledged sequel and is running on an all-new version of the AnvilNext engine, capable of rendering crowds with thousands of people.

PC-only gamers, how do you feel about potentially missing out on a key part of Assassin’s Creed lore? Do you expect this, like Assassin’s Creed: Liberation HD, to arrive on PC at some time in the future? Charter a course for comments section and let us know!

What's funny though, is there are two trailers of this game! Both have the same cinematics, but they both have a different audio script! Have you noticed?

They did this with Liberation and hey-ho! It's out on PC! So we don't have to worry about it! Maybe they're taking time to implement naval warfare and such in the newer AnvilNext engine so that they can get a better PC experience when it comes out! Ubisoft be like:" Why give them the old stuff when we have new stuff!

They didn't do this with Liberation. Originally Liberation was a Vita exclusive, since it didn't sell well since Vitas aren't selling well either, they had to make another version to get some money out of it. Rogue will probably sell well even on old consoles alone. But of course here is still a chance that they'll release PC/new gen version also.

Im positive it'll come to the PC at some point in the future. You know..after reaping everything they can from the console versions..
And my actually more excited for Rogue now..... those sea battles sure are a game-changer... Anyway, I'll wait it out and buy this on PC. Till then, Unity :)

I'd be surprised if it wasn't ported for PC eventually. Guess we'll just have to wait and hope. Poorly optimized or not, repetitive or not, am always down for another game in the AC series.

So in this game you are an ex assassin who for some reason hunts as he said in the trailer ¨people who I once called my brothers...¨ hes fellow assassins. I think the idea is very interesting :D

It is interesting but it is going to feel very weird and uncomfortable while playing until you are involved in the fun of the game and not just the story. I mean, I won't feel happy laying waste to the Assassins! I am not used to that :D Not after 6 games you tell me they are your enemy! I count on Ubisoft making some twists and sudden turns of events that will make the Assassins emerge victorious without you ending up dead at the end of the game, perhaps just realized your mistake! :D

i dont mind if or how much time more it takes ,as long as it comes to pc later. damn them if they dont release it for pc and keep it just for these museum devices... sorry ps3 and xbox360 users. old but gold they say, and its true but this stuff is ancient right now taking intp consideration the pace with which technology develops. i can see why someone would still release games for the previous gen but i cant see why he would make it exclusive to them. sounds crazy. i liked the see gameplay in black flag and i would like to play this game.

IT will arrive on PC I can be sure of this. There is no reason it should not! PC went well along with old consoles. Soon, it will arrive on PC after the consoles.

It is not difficult to port the game to PC. The challenging task is optimizing it. They can do that later when they finish and release the game for old consoles or even when did they care about optimization? :D

I also agree that within a few months at the most after its console release it will be ported to PC like Liberation was.

It seems a bit mad to me not to release it on PC, I can't imagine it's a particularly difficult process having already done it about 6-7 times on what is pretty much an identical engine each time.

Perhaps they don't want to favor PC gamers with two games this year? I find the process to port it normal for them and at least they could show us their alleged love for PC Gamers. Perhaps they will release it for PC in the beginning of the new year just like Liberation. Though, I can't expect how playing with a Templar will feel like, I am not even convinced about it :D

Hmm I wouldn't consider it favouring though. I can pick this up on Sony PS3 and Unity up on Sony PS4, so it would make sense.

As in it's on both 'Sony' platforms and both Xbox consoles, it wouldn't show bias for both to be on PC. Besides that, Ubisoft is driven by making money, not impartiality.

Only reason why Liberation flopped was because it was a Vita only game.

Bigger budget and better graphics wont make a game. Resident evil reveletions showed that damn well. I take it over 5 or 6 anyday and somehow this just reminded me of it hope they make pc port later.

True, anyone here remembers how Splinter Cell Double agent was better game on old gen PS2/Xbox, than on PS3/X360 in 2006?

Agree with that point. Lower budget games tend to focus on every small aspect rather than big budget games that tries too much to have that blockbuster feel.

Every site's going to report on a new AC whether it's a leak or not. I'd say Ubisoft announcing the game with an official trailer at gamescom next week would have been a better unveiling, they'll be kicking themselves right now.
