The tables have turned in the latest gameplay trailer for Assassin’s Creed Rogue, where series’ favourite Adéwalé returns as a potential antagonist, taking on roving templars. In Assassin’s Creed Rogue players will take on the role of assassin-turned-templar Shay Patrick Cormac, who is in the business of hunting assassins following a conversion to the templar way.
Cormac’s adventure will see him around the North Atlantic and the arctic circle during the Seven Years War, where polar-bear hunting and pitched sea battles amid hulking icebergs appears to be the order of the day. The new ship Morrigan will also be much smaller than the Jackdaw, allowing river travel and rapid-paced combat.
Assassin's Creed Rogue is unique for the series in that you'll be experience the assassin-templar struggle from the other side now, getting to grips with templar-specific weapons and items. The Assassins were my brothers; now I hunt them to the ends of the earth and I swear I will not fail," Cormac says in the trailer.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue is out on November 11th in the US and the 14th in Europe, for PlayStation 3, and Xbox One. Ubisoft is keeping schtum on a potential PC and current-gen release next year, although we wouldn’t be surprised to see it crop up in a similar manner to Assassin’s Creed: Liberation HD. PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 owners will have plenty to be getting on with though, with Assassin's Creed Unity arriving worldwide on the very same day.
