Previous recent Assassin’s Creed games added a multiplayer mode of some kind. Well it looks like Assassin’s Creed Rogue will be a single player only affair when it comes out later this year.
The latest issue of Game Informer magazine has detailed a lot of new information about Assassin’s Creed Rogue. One of the biggest things to note is that no multiplayer aspect of any kind is added to the game. This is the first time an Assassin’s Creed game has no multiplayer since 2009’s Assassin’s Creed II. Even this year’s Assassin’s Creed Unity has multiplayer with a co-op mode that looks very fun. It’s possible multiplayer was cut since this game is only being released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 only. It appears Ubisoft is putting more effort in Assassin’s Creed Unity since that is built for next-gen hardware.
Ubisoft also said that they have “nothing more to share” when asked if Assassin’s Creed Rogue would be released for PC and/or Wii U. From a comment like that, it sounds like the game is staying on the PS3 and Xbox 360 only. Assassin’s Creed Rogue will have a huge naval component that is similar to what gamers experienced in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Some new additions however is that some waters in this game will be freezing cold. You can only swim for a short while in cold waters and you also have to avoid icebergs too when you are sailing.
Assassin’s Creed Rogue releases worldwide on November 11th.
