Assassin's Creed Rogue officially announced, complete with details and first trailer

Play as a Templar

Rumors have been floating around since March about Ubisoft's plans to release two Assassin's Creed titles this year -- one for current consoles and one for legacy consoles. Originally codenamed Comet, Ubisoft formally revealed and detailed Assassin's Creed Rogue today, and gave us our first trailer.

Assassin's Creed Rogue is in development by Ubisoft Sofia (with the usual collaboration across many other Ubisoft studios), and takes place during the Seven Years War in the mid-18th century. Rogue makes a return to the northeastern area of North America, particularly the North Atlantic, Appalachian River Valley, and New York.

The twist this time around is that the protagonist fights for the other side. Following the story of Shay Patrick Cormac, Rogue tells the tale of how he was betrayed by the Assassin brotherhood and turned against them. It appears as if Rogue will put significant emphasis on the naval aspect that defined Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, as Ubisoft detailed Cormac's ship -- the Morrigan -- which will be used for Assassin hunting.

While Assassin's Creed Unity is the installment for current consoles, Rogue is exclusive to legacy consoles -- specifically the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It's currently slated for a November 11 release in North America. That's when you get to find out how the other half lives.
