Assassin’s Creed Rogue has been officially confirmed by Ubisoft. First official story details are available below, right after this cinematic announcement trailer.

You are Shay Patrick Cormac, a former Assassin turned Templar. Betrayed by The Brotherhood and marked for death, Shay has decided to become the “most feared Assassin hunter in history” and hunt down those he once called brothers.

Set in 1751 during the Seven Years’ War between British America and New France, Assassin’s Creed Rogue will follow Shay’s transformation through a variety of new environments and locations. These including New York City, The River Valley and the North Atlantic Ocean.

Furthermore, information suggests that the game ties into the Kenway story arc which was the focus of Assassin’s Creed 3 and Black Flag. However, Rogue will also tie into Assassin’s Creed Unity, bridging the gap between the two timelines.

To explore the freezing waters of the North Atlantic, Shay captains a new ship called Morrigan. This ship can break through ice sheets in the frozen ocean and navigate the narrow rivers of North America. In an attempt to bring a new twist to the naval gameplay from previous Assassin’s Creed games, enemies can now board your ship and attempt to commandeer the vessel. You’ll have to fight them off quickly if you want your crew to live to  sail another day.

In order to hunt down the crafty Assassins, Shay will need new weapons and equipment. First of all, he can use his Eagle Vision to detect Assassins hiding in the shadows and rooftops, and get the drop on them before they can ambush him. In addition to his skills as an Assassin, Shay also packs a deadly air rifle for both short and long range combat.

Developed by Ubisoft Sofia in collaboration with Ubisoft’s Singapore, Montreal, Quebec, Chengdu, Milan and Bucharest studios, Assassin’s Creed Rogue will be released worldwide on November 11 exclusively on PS3 and Xbox 360.
