ALLEGIANCES CHANGE AND REVENGE RULES IN UBISOFT®’S ASSASSIN’S CREED® ROGUE

Assassin’s Creed Rogue World Premiere Cinematic Trailer:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjSy5kF6io0

London, UK — August 5, 2014 — Today, Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed Rogue, an exciting new installment in the franchise currently in development for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, will be available worldwide on November 11.

Assassin’s Creed Rogue is being developed by Ubisoft Sofia, in collaboration with Ubisoft’s Singapore, Montreal, Quebec, Chengdu, Milan and Bucharest studios. Set in the middle of the 18th century during the Seven Years War, Assassin’s Creed Rogue gives players new locations across North America to explore, including the frozen North Atlantic, the Appalachian River Valley and New York. In Assassin’s Creed Rogue, players experience the Assassin’s Creed universe through the eyes of a Templar. As Shay Patrick Cormac, players suffer the brotherhood’s betrayal and transform into an Assassin hunter.

The acclaimed naval components from previous Assassin’s Creed games have been enhanced in Assassin’s Creed Rogue. The game also gives players new weapons to use on both land and sea in pursuit of taking down the Assassins, including a new ship called the Morrigan.

“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, Ubisoft Sofia. “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.”

We knew that the game would be in New York again since the initial rumors, it's a different time period (Seven Years' War), and the no PC version implies to me that they intend to make a "Rogue HD" for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Nope not. They already did that with AC3.

And I would be really upset if this turned out to be a very open world game where you just hunt assassins and not much dedicated to the AC storyline O_O

Liberation HD made sense because the Vita wasn't HD and they had to convert the game to HD when they ported it on PC. Rogue HD makes no sense, since last-gen consoles (and PC) are already capable of HD.

Shay probably dies, other wise Connor would have killed him.

Also Shay's active in the Seven Years War, in 1754-1763... Connor starts teaching Eseosa in 1804.

So, unless Shay's a particularly spry 80 year old.

Why don't Connor fans just ask Noah Watts on Tumblr or Twitter if Connor is in Rogue? If he gives a straight answer, you'll know. If he dodges the question, there may be hope for you. If he says no and it later turns out he was lying, well, it'll be a pleasant surprise, won't it? At least there wouldn't be a need for all the pointless speculation.

unless 5 year old connor kills shay, or 30 year old connor kills an 80 year old shay, it's not gonna happen :p

Connor might make a small cameo at the end akin to haytham in black flag, but that's about it.

Unless there's DLC akin to Freedom Cry but I imagine that would be Haytham DLC TBH

Yeah but why not announcing it yet then? I mean, I understand they want PC players to focus on Unity this year, and it makes sense, but they could just say if Rogue it's planned on PC for, let's say, next year!
I think they could have expected PC players reaction to this, so I'm trying to understand their point...

I'm torn on this one. A Haytham cameo would be nice which would explain his missing years from the Forsaken novel (roughly 1758-1770) ... but no PC version. Boo. I have a PS3 and an Xbox 360, but they're more my brother's than mine (despite the fact that I bought them). I'm a PC gamer and intend to stay that way.

Do find it rather funny that I had a theory regarding the destruction of the Assassins although I didn't connect it back to Shay. Begs the question what happens to him at the end of the game. Since the game connects to Unity, Shay likely has some link to Arno as well as the Kenways. Haytham's the obvious and only real possible link to the Kenways. Arno's the question. This kind of reminds me of a mystery ... only Ubisoft's not playing fair. A mystery introduces all of the culprits for a crime in that story, not some story after the fact. Shay wasn't mentioned at all in AC3 and he might be the one that caused the downfall of the Assassins? That wasn't a fair mystery. :rolleyes: Makes me think Shay's story was an afterthought and made up to fill a plot hole while being able to reuse existing assets for a last gen game.

Given Ubisoft Sofia made this game like Liberation and Liberation came out on PC a little over a year after it was released on Vita, Rogue could come out on PC. Frankly, I already got burned by Liberation when I bought a Vita just to play it. Fool me once. :mad: I'm not falling for that again. I'll either wait for the PC version or I won't be getting it at all. And that also means holding off on Unity until that happens ... if I even want to buy Unity. I'm still not convinced by anything related to that game that makes it worth my time or money.

TLoU Remastered also was not planned.

I believe they are going to wait until Rogue doesn't sell anymore (because most people already played it or changed to next-gen consoles) and then bring out a Remastered version for everyone who wants to play it again or hasn't played it yet.

THIS. Biggest point of criticism for me. Ubisoft just can't invent some new story and characters which play between ACIII and Black Flag without mentioning anything of it only to connect different titles/stories afterwards.

How on earth has Connor never heard of Shay and there's no indication of this guy in ACIII?

JustPlainQuirky
08-05-2014, 06:59 PM
Maybe Shay could meet connor technically. If shay was Haythams' age I mean.

But there'd have to be a reason he never met Connor in AC3

maybe he didnt catch word that new assassins rose in the colonies until it was too late.

Jexx21
08-05-2014, 07:04 PM
the reason is probably because Achilles killed Shay

If I recall correctly the templars cornered Achilles but decided to spare him since he was crippled and was the last assassin.

So unless achilles killed him before hand, I don't see it.

Almost spot on:

By 1763, the Assassins were decimated to all but himself, during the aftermath of the French and Indian War. Due to this, the Templar Order grew more powerful and was able to capture the defeated Achilles. However, confident that he was no longer a threat, the Templars decided to show mercy, and allowed Achilles to live if he resigned his role as an Assassin. Following this, Achilles went into exile in the wilderness of the Frontier, residing alone at the Davenport Manor for the next six years.

Maybe in the end Shay will have have a change of heart and realise that he should've stayed with the Assassins. So he decides to save Achilles life by crippling him instead. Cause he knew if Achilles was able to fight back he would've been killed, know what I mean?!

I can see that work as a 'secret true ending', like the one in Liberation.

Rogue will likely be an 'Abstergo Entertainment' game as well; so it'll be Templar propoganda throughout.

So, there could still be Erudito hacks to show 'the (more assassin-friendly) truth' through the propoganda.

Same reason Ezio did not bother remembering Claudia marrying and having children, or how he blocked everything dealing with Cristina, or how the animus skipped Ezio's travels in Spain entirely when Desmond was using the animus, Connor might have heard about Shay but he didn't consider it important enough and so the animus skipped it, maybe Shay wasn't around during the time we play with Haytham or maybe they simply didn't cross paths, like the multiplayer characters, they are supposed to be canon, they are around the same areas we visit and rarely do we encounter one in the main story.

I am sorry if I sound like a naysayer to this game but I am sure that plenty of other gamers out there will agree that the game should not take a tun in that direction. Honestly it was an ok decision to go with the whole rouge thing but not with an assassin. Honestly what would have made it a good game is if you had made a Templar go rouge and train with the assassins but be torn by the allegiances that he has. it would have made for a more interesting experience and even more thrilling ride. Don't let my words discourage you. I am only trying to state my opinion. If anyone agrees and has the same feelings or disagrees I would like to hear it.

A Templar turned Assassin eh
cough cough Edward Kenway cough cough

but i know what you mean, you want someone who believes in their ideals and for whatever reason gets betrayed by his brothers, maybe ambushed and left for dead because he was next in line to be Grand Master and not everyone liked that, so maybe an Assassin or retired Assassin finds him and nurses him back to full health over the course of several months without either of them knowing about their previous allegiances, they become friends, at some point they find out about eachothers allegiances but instead of fighting they talk about their beliefs and that leads to the assassin eventually telling him that a new Templar Grand Master had been chosen, you realise the new grand master was part of the group that almost killed you and that you can't return to the order while the people who plotted against you are still there, so the Assassin makes a deal with you because the new Templar grand master is more of a problem to the brotherhood than the last, work with the brotherhood under the guise of an assassin, kill those who wronged you and return to the Order to take your place as Grand Master and maybe that can lead to an attempt at cooperation with the brotherhood for the betterment of humanity or maybe he will just eventually find his place in the brotherhood and ultimately destroy that branch of the Templar Order or become Templar Grand Master but come to a realisation that the order and the brotherhood could never cooperate and the final memory could be an emotional battle to the death with your Assassin friend

or something like that

Yes. But what I meant was a full on Templar becomes an assassin for better ( or worse ) and not for a short time.
It may be very controversial but I think that a previously power hungry Templar experiences a change of heart when he realizes some of his men are plotting to kill him. The cause for the change itself is because the attempted murder fails and he is found somewhere that he has never been before and has to rely on himself and a fallen Assassin ( cue the rouge assassin.) both have conflicting viewpoints but listen and learn from each other to better each other and find out why they had the changes of heart and mind. Right now all I am doing is spit-balling an idea. beings I know that Assassins Creed Rouge is going to come out and there is no changing it. There may be a way to go with an entire rouge creed that is a combination of both Templars and Assassins. It would be an interesting take on a tense collaboration between two powerhouses in their game that don't like each other but have to work together because they either need or have too. I don't know. Just ideas. tell me if anyone agrees or disagrees or even wants to add too or change what i said.

Yes. But what I meant was a full on Templar becomes an assassin for better ( or worse ) and not for a short time.
It may be very controversial but I think that a previously power hungry Templar experiences a change of heart when he realizes some of his men are plotting to kill him. The cause for the change itself is because the attempted murder fails and he is found somewhere that he has never been before and has to rely on himself and a fallen Assassin ( cue the rouge assassin.) both have conflicting viewpoints but listen and learn from each other to better each other and find out why they had the changes of heart and mind. Right now all I am doing is spit-balling an idea. beings I know that Assassins Creed Rouge is going to come out and there is no changing it. There may be a way to go with an entire rouge creed that is a combination of both Templars and Assassins.

Well, yeah, but this a wholly different story than what we have in Rogue. People have been asking for a game with a Templar protagonist since early 2013, everyone proposing stupid names, like Templar's Greed and others like that. So, Ubisoft decided to listen to them and bring out such a game. Personally, the concept of an Assassin Hunter really intrigues me. Shay really reminds me of Anakin Skywalker and the potential of relieving the story of Darth Vader in Assassin's Creed terms really excites me.

You shouldn't worry, however, this franchise is here to stay, so at some point, they are going to make a Templar go Assassin. Maybe not create his own Creed as you say, but there is definitely going to be one along the years this franchise will stay alive.

So Ubisoft, I was just wondering why there are penguins North of The Arctic Circlehttp://static9.cdn.ubi.com/resource/en-US/game/assassins-creed/ac/ACRO_NorthernLight_in_Sapphire_Embargo_AUG5_9AM_PD T_1920_163336.jpg

They're not penguins.

Theyre extinct animals that look like penguins.

They're next to a shipwreck so they must've been stowed away on the ship. The Arctic is a strange place to them, full of danger, so they decided to stay close to the ship and make it their nesting grounds.

As Mayrice says, they are an extinct species called Great Auk.

There haven't been any confirmed sightings of the bird since 1852.

What if Shay was Achilis mentor and then swaped to Templar side and didn't kill achilis cause godizio prevented him.

Just marathoned through AC I & II and have to say at this point, I am way too invested in the Assassins to just turn my back on them, much less slay them

Once you've played all of them, try looking at it from the other side though. Especially AC3 will allow you to do this ;)!

I believe he meant a real book, written by Oliver Bowden, like we currently have from AC1 to AC3 I believe, not sure if the AC4 one was already released.

I'm hoping Rogue will have a book

They were on their way to Madagascar & got shipwrecked.

Anywho, so far I'm loving Rogue, despite a few random glitches & Initiates/Uplay not working. Hating the stalkers though lol, too creepy for me :eek: :rolleyes:

I have a question for you guys... I did not played AC 4 yet for my friend bought ir for his ps4 and i decided to wait till i have my ps4 to borrow it. But rogue was announced and i get excited to play it in my ps3. I played the intro and was good But when i got out the animus there was People talking about a virus and etc... Then i realized , can i have a good experience playing it without knowing the story of edward kenway? The memory parts and the outside of animus have elements that i Will not comprehend by not playing Black Flag, a least for now? I am so excited and still aprehensive about this... :( give me some light my brothers...

You can play Rogue without playing AC4. For the story part Rogue is more connected with AC3 than 4. The story takes place a couple years before AC3 starts, and there are only minor references to AC4. As for the part outside of the Animus, the setting and premises are the same as in AC4, but you will get the hang of it after a minute, because as you progress outside the Animus, you will have the story in AC4 explained, so don't worry...

So, I just finished the game (I won't spoil anything, obviously) and I have to say that yeah, it was decent. It obviously doesn't have the same effect AC4 had in following AC3 given that it is indeed Blag Flag Part II (mechanically more so than story) so anyone looking to Rogue as an example of where the series is up to right now should probably look more towards Unity for a clearer view. I haven't played Unity yet so I can't commit to knowing anything. Storywise, this was a very good entry if not a little too short. I enjoyed loose ends being tied up and some of the prophesying that went on was also interesting. I have to say that again the present day story was intriguing (I loved this part of AC4) and I enjoyed the new characters that were introduced therein. I advise you all to unlock the story files for some juicy character profiles. Some of the downsides relate to the brevity of the tale. There's nothing wrong with the exposition at all, it's just that in being set in such a vast world the game gives you very little impetus to explore the seas given its preference for localising the advancement of the story to only certain areas. In saying that, being handheld in previous entries was always a slight pain so this game eradicates that outright. I can see why Unity has perhaps returned to a straight up You In The City style. The collectables and suchlike are there for the hardcore/extra interested as are many of the unexplored terrains. Whereas Blag Flag gave you a reason to go here, there and everywhere, Rogue doesn't. The ship mechanics are on their third outing and are now started to feel a little dragged out. I doubt there's a better game series at emulating and creating fun and exciting ship battles, however, so that's still a plus.

+
Shay's tale.
Varied game modes.
The story connections, both in terms of present day/past - time to kick on now, Ubi...we want answers!
Nice nods to previous entries in the series/familiar faces.
The return of some of the older Ezio-style missions (you better run!).
The music, although somewhat underplayed, is as savvy as ever.
The setting is still lush and vibrant.

-
The story is short (but sweet).
No drive to explore the world unless you're a die hard (which I imagine you are if you've bought Rogue anyway).
Some of the voice acting makes you wonder how much 'Irish Coffee' had been drunk the day of recording.
The monetary system is a bit too generous

Now...again without spoiling anything...does anyone else who's finished the game want to see a showdown between the obvious candidates? C'mon, I want to see what kind of 'messy way' *secret* met their end!

Sooooooo when will Rogue inevitably be released on current gen? I know Ubisoft wanted everyone focusing on Unity for now, but... Maybe "Rogue will be releasing on PS4 and Xbox One in May 2015" would make people even happier right now?

This! A lot of us who have Unity don't feel like investing on our old gen console anymore...

It was specifically for last-gen and PC, and so, I doubt it will be seen on current-gen.
