#Gaming NEWS! The other upcoming Assassin's Creed game

"Unity's" not the only Assassin's Creed aimed for this Fall. There's another Assassin's Creed, a second Assassin's Creed game. And not a shorter simpler handheld/mobile Assassin's Creed, but one exclusively aimed for the Xbox 360 and PS3!

Here's Assassin's Creed: Rogue! Yeah, they changed the title of the game formerly announced as "Comet".
Assassin's Creed: Rogue will be exclusive to the last gen, kind of a last hurrah for us slow gen-moving folks. Yeah. I've seen a lot of hate towards Ubisoft decision here, but that's childish attitude.

Back in the day, we used to see exclusive stuff like this all the time on the Megadrive/Master System/Nes/SNES. So deal with it, kiddos!

The game will be out on November 11 and will act as a proper follow-up to 2013's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag to close that overall storyline (and Desmond's side? I know, I know, "no more Desmond", but I really feel Black Flag reopened that plot what with all the hints to a continuation rather than serve as an epilogue after the definitive closer that was AC3's story)

This new one taking place over the North Atlantic Ocean and allowing us to travel to New York. So kinda half AC3's territory and half Black Flag, heh? With new cold weather, exploring the arctic and the early days of the American Frontier - I like the themes it's going to cover.

We'll also get to play as this new character Shay Patrick Cormac. The game will keep the naval combat aspect of AC4. And this time from the point of view of a Templar! (with AC3's "prologue" and AC4's neutral protagonist, we've been slowing moving towards this idea)

Here's some pics now:

And the official trailer!

Looking great so far~

I dunno why - and it's getting kinda repetitive and way too frequent - I'm still super-onboard for a new Assassin's Creed episode! I guess I prefer that these days to the non-stop FPS/driving games out there, just as well repetitive. Probably the weird mix of parkour/history/scifi no doubt...
