Ubisoft has released the launch trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, the PS3 and Xbox 360 offering for the series. It will also launch on PCs. We’ve known for a long time now that in Rogue you play as Shay, an assassin who turns against the Brotherhood to join the Templars instead. To me this presents a much more interesting premise than Unity, especially since the last couple of Assassin’s Creed titles have really made you question which side is worth fighting for. Those shades of grey really first cropped up in Assassin’s Creed III thanks to Haytham Kenway, who spoke about building a just world for all.
You’ll meet familiar faces in the game from AC III and Black Flag, including Haytham. Assassin’s Creed Rogue launches this Friday on the 14th in the UK.
