Assassin’s Creed Rogue’s PC version appears on Uplay’s Rewards

Last week, we informed you that publisher Ubisoft is “looking into” a PC version of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Rogue, which is currently planned for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 only. Well, now it seems like Ubi is seriously planning one such version, because a reader of gaming website DSOGaming has captured a screenshot of Uplay’s Rewards page, which clearly lists said game and its respective actions and rewards.

Of course, the French publisher hasn’t commented on said news, so for now, take it with a pinch of salt. If you’re new to Assassin’s Creed Rogue, know that the game takes place in the mid-18th century during the Seven Years’ War, and follows Shay Patrick Cormac – an assassin-turned-templar. Shay is eventually betrayed and abandoned by the assassins after an assignment ends in disaster, and so turns to the templar order, offering his services as an assassin hunter. Given access to near-limitless resources, Shay sets out to exact his revenge, with his actions having dire consequences for the future of the brotherhood. Gameplay in Assassin’s Creed Rogue will be similar to that of Black Flag, with a mixture of ship-based naval exploration and third-person land-based exploration. Additionally, familiar characters like Assassin’s Creed III’s Achilles Davenport or Haytham Kenway will also make a return, alongside Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’s Adéwalé.

For combat, the game introduces an air-rifle, which allows the player to silently take out enemies at a distance. The air-rifle can be outfitted with a variety of different projectiles, such as firecrackers. The player can also use a grenade launcher, which fires off shrapnel-grenades and other loads. Enemy assassins feature archetypes similar to previous games, using skills that players have been using since the original game; they can hide in bushes, blend in with crowds, and perform air attacks against the player.

Assassin’s Creed Rogue launches on November 11th in North America and November 13th in all PAL regions.
