About Assassin's Creed Rogue

Don't have Assassin's Creed Rogue?

Genre: Action | Publisher: Ubisoft | Platform: PC
Assassin’s Creed: Rogue is a stealth-based game available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Microsoft Windows. Taking place between the events of Assassin’s Creed IV and Assassin’s Creed III, Rogue allows you to explore and sneak your way through historical locations while uncovering a conspiracy.

Like other games in the franchise, Assassin’s Creed: Rogue is developed and published by Ubisoft. Players who enjoyed previous Assassin’s Creed games, or who enjoy games emphasizing open-world exploration and stealth-based gameplay will probably enjoy playing Assassin’s Creed: Rogue

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue Basics

In Assassin’s Creed: Rogue you control Shay Patrick Cormac, a new recruit to the Assassin order. After becoming disillusioned with the Assassins, Shay defects to their rival organization, the Templars, and seeks to eliminate his former allies. The game primarily takes place against the backdrop of the historical French and Indian War, a precursor to the American Revolution which occurred in the mid-1700s.

Shay primarily travels using a boat, as in Assassin’s Creed IV. Unlike that game, Shay’s boat can traverse shallow waters, allowing him to sail through rivers and explore the inner reaches of the American frontier. Players can also explore on foot and use stealth tactics to move about while escaping detection. Combat is a mix of close-quarters melee combat with historical firearms for long-range battle.

Core Challenges

With such a large, open world, there’s a lot to see and do in Assassin’s Creed: Rogue. Here are some tips and tricks to help you out as you play.

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue Tip 1 – Practice Naval Combat: Earlier games in the Assassin’s Creed series tended to focus on on-foot melee combat. While this is obviously still a huge part of the game, naval combat returns from Assassin’s Creed IV and is refined to be even better. Shay’s ship has a number of new features which allow it to do things like break through ice barriers and use objects at sea as cover. Mastering these new features is crucial to taking on tougher sea challenges like the Legendary Ships.

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue Tip 2 Hunting and Upgrading: You start the game pretty well-equipped to take on challenges, but as the difficulty rises, you’ll have to upgrade your equipment and your ship if you don’t want to get swarmed under. Crafting is done using materials from animals you can hunt, while ship upgrades are hidden around the map. They can be found in almost any location, but most are in the North Atlantic or River Valley areas.

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue Tip 3 – Explore, Explore, Explore: Rogue is at its core an open-world game, with much to see and do in the world of the American wilderness and the North Atlantic Ocean. While you should never shirk the main story, there’s something to be said about simply wandering around doing side missions, finding hidden secrets, or simply seeing what’s over the next horizon. Not only does it benefit you, but the game world is gorgeous. Have you found the hidden waterfall yet? What about the place where you can see the Northern Lights? 

What We Love About It

As one of the stronger entries in a popular modern series, there are lots of great things about Assassin’s Creed: Rogue. Here are three things we love most about it.

The Hidden Secrets: There are an incredible number of secrets hidden in the world of Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, ranging from ship upgrades and new weapons to side quest items and rare animals to hunt. With so much to do and find, it never feels like the game is growing dull or doesn’t have enough to offer.

The Naval Combat: Ship-based combat and exploration was the bread and butter of Assassin’s Creed IV, and it returns here with aplomb. Naval combat is an exciting and strategic element of the game that is a refreshing change of course from on-foot combat. The ability to take your boat through rivers and into the interior of the continent just makes it that much cooler.

The Story: For the first time, a game in the Assassin’s Creed series features the eponymous Assassins as the bad guys. Rogue’s story is one of the best in the series, making you question the basic “Assassins good, Templars bad” mindset that other games in the series hold to. Shay’s defection feels natural, and certain events in the story also shed interesting and sinister light on the ongoing series-wide plot. 

Top User Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) About Assassin’s Creed: Rogue

Are All Secrets Available Right Off the Bat? 
Rogue is primarily told from the Templar point of view, but Shay doesn’t begin the game siding with them. Some secrets are available from the very beginning, but most don’t become available until after Shay joins the Templars.

What Collectibles Are There? 
Treasure Chests and Sea Shanties return as collectibles from Assassin’s Creed IV, and there are also items like Native Pillars, Viking Swords, and Animus Fragments to find. Finding these items can earn you in-game rewards like money and are also tied to some achievements and trophies.

What’s the Easiest Way to Make Money? 
The most efficient way to make money is by boarding enemy ships. You definitely want to board, not sink, as a sunken ship only nets you half the loot. There are occasionally abandoned ships you can find which will give you loot for free if you claim them, but their appearance is random.
