Ubisoft have today revealed the official release date for the PC version of their 2014 open-world action-adventure video game Assassin's Creed Rogue. A spiritual successor to 2013's Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag as well as a spiritual predecessor to both 2012's Assassin's Creed III and 2014's Assassin's Creed Unity (feel free to shudder at the thought of the latter bug-ridden title), Rogue tasked players with taking on the mantle of an Irish Assassin whose faith in his Creed becomes questioned in the lead-up to the American Revolution that he switches sides in order to join the Templar Order and restore balance to the soon-to-be United States.
360 and PS3 owners will most likely know the drill, of course, since the seventh consecutive annual current-generation instalment in the long-running saga of Animus-fuelled trips through the realms of time first launched on Microsoft and Sony's aforementioned hardware last November. Even so, however, that Rogue earned itself a mighty 9/10 score from On-Screen - in no small part due to its tonally subversive storyline, intelligent integration of Black Flag's game-play mechanics and most of all its writers' bravery in providing a succinct main campaign rather than having Shay McCormack's valiant quest for revenge outstay its welcome in a detrimental manner - is no mean feat under any circumstances, and what with the lack of AAA blockbuster titles on the horizon in February and March, now could be the perfect time for those who found themselves despondent as a result of the glitches plaguing Assassin's Creed Unity to pick up Rogue so as to experience the ultimate palette cleanser.
The PC version of Assassin's Creed Rogue will launch on March 10th in all good European high-street and digital video game retailers. Glance below for a first look at the tailor-made launch trailer for this long-awaited port.
