'Assassin's Creed: Rogue' PC Release Date Set For March With "Eye Popping" New Graphics Upgrade
Last gen swashbuckler Assassin's Creed Rogue is coming to PC in March, Ubisoft just announced.
If you don't remember Rogue, that's understandable. The last gen title slipped under the radar and, because it worked so well, nobody paid it much mind while its bigger, shinier brother Assassin's Creed Unity proceeded to remind us of everything we hate about the state of modern games: broken launches, DLC traps, endless patches and greed, greed, greed.
But Rogue itself is quite fun. Taking place in 1752, the story follows Shay Cormac, a former Assassin who was betrayed by his brothers and now seeks revenge upon his former group. He becomes a Templar and the assassins become the assassinated in an epic, seafaring campaign all over the New World.
Don't worry, though, this is still an Ubisoft game: A Collector's Bundle is also available for Assassin's Creed Rogue PC, exclusively on Uplay Shop. The edition includes an artbook, three shiny lithographs, the game's full soundtrack and "access to one extra single player missions and additional items such as armor and weapons."
"Players who pre-order any edition of Assassin's Creed Rogue for Windows PC from the Uplay Shop will receive one of seven bonus Assassin's Creed games of their choosing. Pre-ordering the PC digital version will also grant two additional bonus packs: The Siege of Fort de Sable and The Explorer."
However, Ubisoft Kiev is doing something particularly cool with the game's port. The company has partnered with Tobii Tech to bring you the first ever AC game with eye tracking capability. "Players using the SteelSeries Sentry (with Tobii eye tracking) when playing Assassin's Creed Rogue will experience true gaming immersion: as the player looks to the left or right of the screen, the camera will pan to accommodate the exploration of this new visual territory, creating an "infinite screen" experience."
We have to admit it, that's pretty cool. Assassin's Creed Rogue hits PC on March 10. We'd recommend at least until March 11 to even think about playing it, just to be safe.
