No multiplayer for Assassin's Creed: Rogue
It looks like Ubisoft are conducting a multiplayer purge in the Assassin's Creed series this year with the news that Assassin's Creed: Rogue will feature no multiplayer whatsoever.
The game will follow Irish Assassin Shay Cormac as he makes the transition from Assassin's to Templar between 1752 and 1761 set against the backdrop of the Seven Years War. It will also see the return of Haytham Kenway, Connor Kenway's mentor Achillese and Edward Kenway's first mate Adewale.
While Assassin's Creed: Unity has shunned the competitive multiplayer in favour of co-op, Assassin's Creed: Rogue has dropped it completely and becomes the first game in the series since Assassin's Creed 2 to be single player only.
Still there seems some cool features as Shay's ship, Morrigan can be boarded by enemy vessels seeing players fight a reversal of ACIII and ACIV's boadring actions.
Assassin's Creed: Rogue will be heading to the PS3 and Xbox 360 on November the 11th.
The news comes courtesy of some leaked scans of the Assassin's Creed cover feature in the next issue of Game Informer.
