Assassin's Creed Rogue gets new gameplay trailer

Sail the Arctic seas with your beloved Morrigan.


Ubisoft, eager to showcase one of its forthcoming titles for the holiday season, has posted a new gameplay video for Assassin's Creed Rogue, which will be making its debut this November for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

In the eight minute clip, you'll get an idea of what it's like to hit the high seas in the Morrigan, with battles that are quite similar to the ones you experienced in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. You'll be able to sing shanties with your crew, track down important goods to upgrade your ship, and, as expected, engage in high-sea battles that are certainly a lot of fun.

You can check out the extended gameplay clip below, and expect more information on Rogue in the days ahead!

      More ghetto treatment for PC users by UBI.

        Why would you complain about this? Unity is coming out as well. We get both games.

          No, Rogue is PS3/Xbox 360 only. No PC version announced or likely.

            That's the same thing said about Liberation (PSP only!):

            Still came out. This'll happen to Rogus as well.

              Yea but it came more than a year later...
              And now its from last gen consoles to PC, not from a handheld device to PC. They could just slap in some fast and basic optimizations (like ubi sadly also does to non exclusive games too) and call it a day.

                So? I'm patient. That's a lot of Assassin's Creed to enjoy.

                  The problem is, if it is ever released it will probably be after AC Unity, and after playing Unity i highly doubt i'll want to play AC Rogue even if its released. And probably a high number (if not most) of people will be on the same wagon.

                  So its a loss-loss scenario, they don't get the extra money for the little efford of making the port (no new flashy things or textures or pc exclusive features, just a plain port to make it work on pc), and we dont have the oportunity to play the game if we dont own a last gen console.

            If it's only last gen then the game means nothing to the series. If it was worthwhile it'd be on current gen and PC. It's like the new Borderlands, if it were on current gen and out of Gearbox, I'd be all over it, but.. ehhh...

              Eh, I wouldn't be so quick to say that. Ubi has a history of making concurrent next-gen and current-gen titles and doing the current-gen titles pretty well.

              Also, who knows if Ubi even gets their new AC engine wrangled into shape on the PC. I'd call myself a pessimist for that, but there is some pretty hefty precedence in the form of Watch_Dogs PC. That still hasn't been fixed.

          I loved AC4. I spent a good 40 hours with it, which is probably twice as long as the main story requires. But I've little interest in this because it's so clearly more of the same in a different location. If they had added a huge map, with a real economy to trade in and a fluid territorial system to influence, the ability to choose your ship, the ability to sail with a fleet of allies and engage a fleet of enemies (big fleet actions back then involved as many as 60 warships of various sizes, but you only ever fight three or so in AC4), etc., then it'd be a worthwhile sequel. But the AC games have never been interested in making significant improvements or additions: sailing is the biggest the series has seen and it seems they're content to milk it for a while. It's disappointing because no one else does historical settings and they could do wonderful things if they wanted to.

            I kind of wanted to be able to bolster the forts and defend them against attacking fleets. Upgrade weapons and build it out, etc. That would have been pretty cool.

            I put 70 hours in and still mean to play more, I just loved the setting, ship battles, boarding, exploration, all of it. Can't wait for Rogue, but I'm going to have to on the off chance it's coming for PC later. :/
