Ubisoft has announced the title of their upcoming PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 Assassin’s Creed game.
Although earlier rumors have dubbed the current-gen game Assassin’s Creed: Comet, officially, the game’s title is Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, and it is slated for a November 11 release.
The game is single-player only, and will be the first Assassin’s Creed game since Assassin’s Creed II to leave out multiplayer gameplay.
According to Ubisoft, Rogue’s protagonist is Shay Patrick Cormac. As hinted in the title of the game, Cormac is an Assassin who has “gone rogue” and joined up with the Templars, the Assassin’s mortal enemy.
For those who aren’t familiar with the series’ lore, Assassins and Templars clash over ideological differences. Assassins believe in free will and the freedom of individuals, while Templars believe in order and the subordination of the individual to authority.
Rogue will be set in the 18th century during the Seven Years War, and will complete “the North American saga that began with Assassin’s Creed III and Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag.”
Shay will go about his Assassin assassination business on both land and sea, and will find himself in “the arctic North Atlantic Ocean, the Appalachian River Valley, and a bustling New York City.”
While on sea, Shay will pilot the Morrigan, which is smaller than Edward Kenway’s Jackdaw from Black Flag because Shay needs to travel in rivers and narrower channels.
As a Templar, Shay has access to better weaponry like grenade launchers and air rifles, according to GameSpot.
GameSpot also notes that it is possible to “hunt polar bears and narwhals” in Rogue.
Currently, the game specs have not been released yet. Ubisoft has also not said if the game will be ported over to the PC or Wii U.
