History has always played an important role in the Assassin’s Creed series. It serves its purpose as a backdrop and a resource for dramatic events, supporting characters, and villains. Assassins Creed: Rogue will be slightly different with the previous games in the sense that it is more concerned with carefully examining the history of the series itself than exploring true-to-life events. The end result is one of the best and the most striking stories seen in Assassin’s Creed history. Assassin’s Creed Rogue delivers a unique twist on the story by putting players on the enemy side, for once, and offering a view as to how the Templar Order proceeds with its mission.
In 18th century, North America. Amidst the chaos and violence of the French and Indian War, you will take on the role of Shay Patrick Cormac, the rogue assassin that will turn against his brothers and fight alongside the Templars.
As Shay, you will experience the slowly transform from Assassin to Assassin Hunter. Follow your own creed and set off in an epic and extraordinary journey through New York City, the wild river valley, and far away to the icy cold waters of the North Atlantic in pursuit of your mission- bringing down the Assassins for good. Introducing Assassin’s Creed® Rogue, the darkest chapter in the Assassin’s Creed series just yet.
