Assassin’s Creed Rogue is the final Assassin’s Creed game to be released for seventh-generation consoles and was released side-by-side to Assassin’s Creed Unity. Assassin’s Creed Rogue takes players to the Seven Years’ War, and follows Shay Patrick Cormac as he switches his allegiances from Assassin to Templar and controls the ship Morrigan in an attempt to undermine the Assassins’ plans.
Cormac, a new member of the Assassins, is working under Achilles Davenport when he is handed the ship Morrigan to track down a Precursor artifact that can lead the Assassins to a piece of Eden. Cormac is dispatched to Lisbon to retrieve the artifact, but following the events that transpire there, Cormac turns against his Assassin comrades and joins the Templars instead, in and attempt to wipe out the assassins and become the most feared Assassin hunter in history. The game lets players control a Templar for the first time in the series’ history, and depicts the Assassin-Templar conflict from the other side. Shay Cormac comes armed with his traditional Assassin skills, but also a variety of new skills and weapons, such as the poison gas, or the air rifle, which is useful for both short and long range combat. Eagle vision becomes critical as Cormac must use it to detect assassins hiding in wait to eliminate him, and dispatch them before they can carry out their plans. As is tradition in the Assassin’s Creed series, the player can engage in a variety of side-missions, including new ones such as Assassin Interception, in which Cormac must prevent assassinations of Templars by finding the Assassins and stopping them before they can commit the assassination.
The game is set in various locations in North America, including New York City, The River Valley and the waters of the North Atlantic, and features gameplay mainly based off of the highly-acclaimed Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. The gameplay is expanded off of that entry in the franchise, to present new enemy tactics, such as enemies who board the player’s ship and new weapons, such as puckle guns and burning oil, which burns enemy ships by leaving behind a trail of fire. Due to its setting in the North Atlantic, players can ram through ice sheets to discover hidden locations, as well as use icebergs as cover during combat.
