Gamescom 2014: Assassin's Creed Rogue Gameplay Vids
There will be two Assassin's Creed adventures this fall, one each for previous-gen and next-gen consoles.
The one coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 is called Assassin's Creed Rogue and now we've got some gameplay, thanks to a couple Gamescom walkthrough videos.
These show off a bunch of naval battles on the high seas, as well as standard combat on land. The game is set during the Seven Years' War, and you play as an Assassin-turned-Templar named Shay Patrick Cormack. That's the "Rogue" part of the title, by the way. The gameplay appears to be exactly what we'd expect, even if it's not quite as impressive as the Assassin's Creed: Unity footage. Well, one gets the benefit of a lot more raw horsepower, you know?
And die-hard fans of the series are gonna want to play both, anyway. Rogue isn't some slipshod spin-off, either; it's a fully realized entry, and that's undeniably appealing for Assassin's Creed followers. The game will release on November 11 for the PS3 and 360.
