This week instead of the regular news round up I want to give you a small review that will lead
into a bigger review later. This is just a first impressions and basic overview of the game.
Assassins Creed Rogue follows Shay Cormac, a former Assassin turned Templar. As a Templar he acts as an Assassin Hunter, and hunts his former brotherhood while following a new creed. The games mechanics follow the same vein of Black Flag, though there are noticeable
The game is set in New York City, as well as the inland Appalachian regions of North America
and off the coast of the northeast American colonies. The,games story takes place during the
Seven Year War.
As far as gameplay, Shay captain’s the Morrígan, a Sloop of War. This ship has a shallower
draft than the Jackdaw, Edward Kenway’s ship, which allows for river travel inland American
This ship also has new weapons and features, such as the Pickle Gun, Burning Oil, and the
ice ram. The last of which allows for traversing through the ice sheets of the north seas.
Also since your targets are Assassins they will display abilities similar to you have in the past:
smoke bombs, hiding in tall grass and Hay Carts, and so on.
Other changes include the ability for other ships to board you in naval combat, and a parry
system that i similar to the Batman Arkham series involving timing.
A more in depth review of the story as well as a final grade will be given at a later time.
