Assasin’s Creed Rogue
Developer Ubisoft Sofia / release date 2014
Shades of gray in this tale of Assassin turned Templar Shay, betrayed and sailing the 18th century North Atlantic. His Irish accent might be Lucky Charms levels of bad, but Shay’s adventures are essentially a very chilly BlackFlag. The icy seas are teeming with ships to loot, wildlife to hunt, and a dangerous number of puzzles and collectibles, despite a shorter campaign. If you thought you’d got away from those Assassins, think again. Just like in AC’s multiplayer, whispers indicate you’re being hunted and you’ll need to spot your pursuers before their hidden blades find you.
