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.

 Do you think either of AC Rogue or Unity are currently looking like the more interesting proposition? Do you hope Rogue eventually makes its way to PC? Let us know!

I'm really disappointed. I've wanted a Templar only AC game for so long, and when we finally get one, its only on last gen. sigh

hey it may hit others later like Liberation did. This is why you don't want to get rid of a PS3/360 to get a PS4/XBO if you can help it :p (and also why you want a console in addition to a PC)

This game looks like it's going to best AC Unity's story and if it really turns out to be Epic as the developers say, it might, just might beat AC2's story (TBH, I kinda like the Kenway story more than Ezio's story)

It will beat Unity's Story Easily but AC 2 I am not sure depends on how Shay will turn out.

wrong time frame, this takes place during the seven years war, between Haytham's storyline in AC3 and Connor's.


I mean we MIGHT see Connor, but it's unlikely.

I have to say that the fact that this is not on PC (yet?!) also is pathetic !

Ubisoft is a game developer that has everything going for it right now, and if they are not, they sure look as though they're trying their hardest to throw it all away. In my view, their management have little clue what they're doing.


Another game developer running more like a financial firm than a game developer.

So this time we're just playing a templar? Just like in AC3 first few sequences with Haytham Kenway?


I hope they're splitting up the series in Assassins for current gen consoles, and Templars for the last gen consoles. And PC for both ^^

Nah. This pretty much loops out the Connor story line and will mark the end of AC on last gen according to Ubi. They are going next gen only in the years ahead.

well we know what happened to them (both died of Smallpox), but it would be nice to see Achilles with them.

Yeah Shaw looks like a new recruit so he will probably be trained by Achilles. I think this game will also show the downfall of the brotherhood.

yeah, seeing as it would be in the right time frame. The Colonial Brotherhood was destroyed between Haytham's story in AC3, and connor's, so it would be about right. I say that'll be one of the final missions.

I think that Tecedu is right and Achilles will train Shay, because he might be the reason that Achilles did not want to have another disciple, i.e Connor,who would probably betray the Assassins like his previous one did. And I think we will see the fall of the colonial assassins in this game as Achilles said in AC3.

that's entirely possible, I'd bet money on both happening. Although for Achilles, he also may not have wanted another apprentice because of how the entire colonial brotherhood was wiped under his watch, which very well could be caused by Shay, we'll see, I'm eager to find out, myself.

It's possible.. Shay probably spared Achilles because he taught him everything and it he just might have left him alive for respect. Another thing could be that Shay did kill Achilles or at least he thought he did and Achilles might have survived somehow. But I don't think sparing Achilles would sit right with Haytham.

Honestly I think Immortal's right, but then again, Achilles was a decrepit old man in AC3, not able to do much harm by himself, so maybe it wouldn't bother Haytham then. Haytham may not mind anyway, given how he was the most likable Templar even after that was revealed. He seemed to be the most fair and level-headed. So maybe he felt Shay had good reason to spare Achilles.
