Assassin’s Creed Rogue video game developed by Ubisoft Sofia and published by Ubisoft. It is the seventh major installment in the Assassin’s Creed series, and acts as a sequel to 2013’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and a prequel to 2012’s Assassin’s Creed III with its final mission being the prologue to 2014’s Assassin’s Creed Unity. It is the last of the Assassin’s Creed games to be released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Ubisoft announcing that the company will no longer release games for them, except for its casual rhythm series Just Dance. The game was first released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in November and December 2014, and released onMicrosoft Windows on March 10, 2015.
The plot is set in a fictional history of real world events and follows the centuries-old struggle between the Assassins, who fight for peace with free will, and the Templars, who desire peace through control. The story is set in the mid-18th century during the Seven Years’ War, and follows Shay Patrick Cormac, an Assassin-turned-Templar. Gameplay inRogue is very similar to that of Black Flag with a mixture of ship-based naval exploration and third-person land-based exploration with some new features.
Upon release, Rogue received a mostly positive critical reaction; most critics praised the game’s twist on the traditional formula by playing as a Templar, the mature story-line, the complex protagonist, the sophisticated depiction of the fight between Templars and Assassins, as well as the additions to the franchise’s lore and the naval warfare gameplay. Other reviewers criticized it for failing to innovate the series’ formula and its similarities to Black Flag.
