We’ve experienced the Templar side of the equation in an Assassin’s Creed game before with III. However, as explained by the plot line there, that decision was one that eventually made sense for longtime fans of this franchise.
In Assassin’s Creed Rogue, so far as we know, players will play a member of the Templar from the onset in a way that they’ve never done before.
This video interview comes from Ubisoft as it was recorded during PAX Prime a few weeks ago. Producer Ivan Balabanov talks about Rogue‘s protagonist, Shay, and his motivation for taking on the Assassins.
Hopefully we’ll see a good effort from Assassin’s Creed Rogue when it releases on Nov. 18. So far, it has only been announced for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
