Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed Rogue Hits Shelves

Assassins' CreedUbisoft announced that two Assassin’s Creed games launched for all players: Assassin’s Creed Unity, the latest installment of the award-winning franchise set against the backdrop of the chaos and brutality of the French Revolution, is now available on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC; and Assassin’s Creed Rogue, available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Set in a once-magnificent Paris, Assassin’s Creed Unity plunges into the terror of the 1789 French Revolution and features the most dense and immersive Assassin’s Creed city ever created. In this time of chaos and brutality, a young man named Arno, wounded by the loss of those he loved, sets on a deadly path of redemption. Arno’s pursuit throws him into the middle of a ruthless struggle for the fate of a nation, and transforms him into a true Master Assassin.

Assassin’s Creed Unity reinvents the franchise, starting with the core gameplay pillars that have defined the series from the beginning: navigation, stealth and combat. Players will carve their way through a stunning, full-scale open-world Paris, thanks to the power of the new Anvil engine, rebuilt from the ground up for new generation consoles. Players can channel their inner Assassin, customizing weapons, equipment, outfits and specialized skills to match their play style.

In addition to the sprawling single-player campaign, players can join with up to three friends and take part in story-driven online co-op missions designed specifically for Assassins to play together. Skills and unique gear acquired in the single-player missions will be accessible in co-op and will define a player’s personalized Assassin’s style, whether emphasizing brute force, agility or stealth. Players also will select a unique co-op skill that will help the team survive, evade or fight more effectively to the benefit of the team.

Assassin’s Creed Rogue, available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners, is set in the middle of the 18th century during the Seven Years War, Assassin’s Creed Rogue gives players new locations across North America to explore, including the frozen North Atlantic, the Appalachian River Valley and New York. In Assassin’s Creed Rogue, players experience the Assassin’s Creed universe through the eyes of a Templar. As Shay Patrick Cormac, players suffer the brotherhood’s betrayal and transform into an Assassin hunter.

The acclaimed naval components from previous Assassin’s Creed games have been enhanced in Assassin’s Creed Rogue. The game also gives players new weapons to use on both land and sea in pursuit of taking down the Assassins, including a new ship called the Morrigan.

Players can enhance their Assassin’s Creed Unity experience with a free companion app available on iOS and Android. Filled with activities and strategic information, players will resolve hidden glyph puzzles on famous Paris landmarks and manage their Nomad Brotherhood to unlock exclusive missions and rewards.

Players can unlock more rewards by connecting to Assassin’s Creed Unity and Assassin’s Creed Rogue with their Uplay accounts, completing actions to unlock 30 exclusive in-game rewards.
