With all the focus on the shiny current-gen stuff, information of that other Assassins Creed seems to be falling by the wayside. While everybody’s talking about a revolution, many are forgetting that there’s a brand new Assassin’s Creed Adventure coming to those old systems, the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, in Assassin’s Creed Rogue.
The story is set in the mid-18th century during the Seven Years’ War, and follows Irish-American Shay Patrick Cormac, an Assassin-turned-Templar. A rogue, see?
It’s one that seeks to wrap up the Kenway story line, and seems to be built on what made Assassin’s Creed IV so popular; great naval battles, a flippant protagonist and a great big open world – blended with a bit of that American frontier we saw from Assassin’s Creed 3 (without featuring a dull, stoic Connor – who at the very least, wasn’t Desmond Miles). It’s out next week on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, with a shinier PC version coming at some unspecified point next year. I’m afraid I won’t be able to play it until then – because playing stuff on my old 360 or PS3 now makes me want to vomit in to my own shoes. That said, I really am quite keen on tying up the Kenway saga.
Here’s the first 30 minutes of that game via AllGamesBeta. I suppose I needn’t mention that it’s filled with great big giant spoilers.
If that gets pulled or you’re blocked from Daily Motion, here’s an alternative link.
