Following on from the naval combat demo we showed you earlier, Ubisoft also released a gameplay demo for the land combat of the game. In the video below Martin Capel, game director of Assassin’s Creed Rogue, talks us through how Shay hunts and dispatches his former assassin brothers.
As Shay used to be an assassin he knows their tactics in stealth, assassination, and swordplay. Now as a Templar, Shay has other abilities at his disposal in order to hunt down his targets.
The video showcases a mission in which Shay is in the new River Valley location, said to provide the ‘first truly hybrid gameplay,’ by using naval and land environments together seamlessly. We start off on the Morrigan, Shay’s Templar ship, and see many of the new features shown in the previous video. Once that’s done with we’re brought in to land in order to take over some headquarters held by gangs loyal to the Assassins. Check out the footage below.
