What does it take to turn an Assassin against his brotherhood? Ubisoft is answering this question with a new trailer for Assassin's Creed Rogue, the AC game set to hit Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The trailer takes a look at main character Shay's time as an Assassin and the fateful mission that turned him against the Order, leading him to a life as an Assassin-hunting Templar. It also takes a peek into some familiar faces you might remember from Assassin's Creed 3, including a younger Haytham Kenway and Achilles, the man that would go on to train that game's lead character, Connor.

More interesting, however, is the reveal at the end of this trailer. Ubisoft points out that in addition to hitting Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on November 11, a PC version of AC Rogue is also on the docket. It's set to arrive in early 2015.

To check out Shay's story, watch the trailer below.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      IGN article suggested it may be coming to PS4/Xbone also: 'Naturally, the news the PS3 and Xbox 360 title will hit PC is going to fuel speculation about current-gen versions, but when asked about an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 version of Assassin's Creed Rogue down the line, the publisher remained tight-lipped saying, “We can’t talk about this right now.”'

        That almost goes without saying at this point. I'd expect to see it next summer, during the slower months.

        It's obviously coming they just don't want to detract from the 360/PS3 sales and go head-to-head with their own AC:Unity game. This is also why the PC version won't be coming till 2015. I imagine it'll be released early next summer for the PS4/XOne.

      Very cool! I'll be grabbing this on the PC for sure (unless the PS4 gets it around the same time, or shortly after). :)

      That actually looks like a more interesting story than Unity, which I have no idea what its about.
