As the last-generation Assassin’s Creed game this year, Assassin’s Creed Rogue got more than a little flak for not also releasing on PC. Now Ubisoft has announced that the game will also be coming for the PC master race early next year.
But what’s the game about? We know it rounds out the Kenway saga, but now we get to find out how Shay went from being an assassin to going rogue and joining the templars.
For those who don’t watch videos, the long and short of it is that Shay is sent on an assassin mission that results in the deaths of many innocent people. On a quest for redemption, he decides to join the templars and make amends for his previous actions. It seems that both Rogue and Unity explore the concept of guilt and redemption, although Rogue will also feature appearances from Haytham, Adéwalé and Achilles. Apparently, we can even expect more familiar faces in the game as the Kenway saga is completed.
I’m really glad that the game will be coming to more platforms; I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before it’s given a bit of an upgrade and brought to new generation consoles, too. Meanwhile, at least the PC gamers who have been playing through the whole franchise can continue to do so with Assassin’s Creed Rogue before jumping into Assassin’s Creed Unity. Of course, the PC gamers’ response will probably be to cringe when they realize this will mean more Uplay.
Last time I played Rogue, it felt like more of Black Flag – I’m not saying that’s a bad thing considering how great that game was. However, I’m curious to see if they can expand on the gameplay, or if it will be the culmination of last generation’s offering. Most of all, I’m keen to see how the present day (out of the Animus) story continues in both Rogue and Unity; they did such a great job with that aspect in Black Flag, I’m hoping that they continue in the same vein with Rogue and Unity.
