Assassin’s Creed: Rogue Overview (Synopsis and Features)

Gamers can experience the other side of the perpetual conflict at the core of Ubisoft’s historically themed open-world action series as they take control of Assassin-turned-Templar Shay Patrick Cormac in Assassin’s Creed: Rogue. Set in the midst of the French and Indian War, Rogue lets players control Shay as he evolves from a dedicated Assassin into a killer who hunts his former brethren, and the action moves from the crowded streets of 18th-century New York City to the river valleys of colonial America and out into the iceberg-laden waters of the North Atlantic Ocean.

Being both a Templar and a former Assassin means Shay has unique weapons and abilities, including a grenade launcher and an air rifle that can be used to fire off various projectiles and enhanced eagle vision that lets him detect hiding Assassins. Rogue also continues the franchise’s latter-day sailing exploits, with gamers taking the helm of the The Morrigan to fight through the frigid North Atlantic and navigate through narrow river passages. New naval options let players break through sheets of ice to find hidden areas, fend off Assassins attempting to board the ship, unleash a steady stream of bullets with the puckle gun, and drop burning oil into the water to set pursuing ships ablaze.
