When Assassin’s Creed Rogue was announced earlier this year, many PC users were upset that the title was confirmed only for release on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, the first time that a main entry in the series hadn’t come to the platform. Rumors have been flying for several weeks before the game was confirmed for PC in a recent trailer, but now we have a rough time frame for when that will happen.
In a new story trailer for story for the turncloak Shay, an assassin of the Brotherhood that defected to the Templar Order, has confirmed that a PC version is in the works. At the end of the video, the platforms shown include PC with a message saying “coming early 2015 to PC.” This does unfortunately mean that the title won’t be available at the console release date of November 11th, but it should give Ubisoft ample time to make the needed adjustments to bring it to PC.
The trailer reveals a little more insight into Shay’s decision to betray the Brotherhood with a missions gone wrong and him yelling about being forced into a situation where he had to kill innocents. Clearly the events didn’t sit well with him and led him to seek to make amends, namely by killing many of his former friends.
I personally haven’t been deep into Assassin’s Creed since the release of Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood several years ago, but in light of a PC release (my personal platform of choice) and this anti-hero story, I’m actually quite looking forward to exploring Assassin’s Creed Rogue in-depth. Let me know what you think of the this new, dark story in the comments below.
