Assassin’s Creed Rogue Revealed – Coming to PS3 and Xbox 360

A new side story in the Assassin’s Creed series has been rumored for a while, but it was confirmed today thanks to a leaked trailer. The trailer shows off a new playable character, Shay Patrick Cormac, and will feature ship-based traversal during the Seven Years’ War, set between Assassin’s Creed III and Black Flag.

The snow-heavy section looks fantastic in cutscene form, and it has me personally hoping for a higher-end console version so it can really shine – although it’s doubtful that the aging last-gen Assassin’s Creed engine will be able to meet that lofty standard The Last of Us set last year. Assassin’s Creed Rogue will be released on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 November 11.
