Nathan is off celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving, so since he’s busy stuffing a turkey with Timbits (or whatever they do up there, sorry) it behooves me to cover this new Assassin’s Creed Rogue trailer. Speaking of our friendly neighbors to the north, Assassin’s Creed Rogue is set in Canada, where former Assassin Shay Cormac has turned Templar and is hunting Assassins and stabbing French dudes. Oh man, don’t let Quebec hear about this.
The new trailer forgoes any talk about naval combat or bearships or extensive gameplay footage and instead delves a bit into Shay’s backstory. Why would an Assassin go rogue and start stabbing his contemporaries? Did they slap his double-double out of his hand and call his favourite moose a hoser? I bet that’s what it was.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue stabs at the heart of the PS3 and Xbox 360 one week earlier than expected, November 11th. Ubisoft also revealed it’ll be coming to PC in early 2015.
