Assassin’s Creed: Rogue Releases for PC on March 10
Following into rumors, Ubisoft has officially announced that Assassin’s Creed: Rogue will release for the PC on March 10.
According to the announcement, development of the Windows port is being handled by Ubisoft Kiev who have also partnered with Tobii Tech to integrate eye-tracking input as a component of gameplay.
“This is the first game of this scale to offer this entirely new, complementary input to the keyboard and mouse,” the developer noted.
“Players using the SteelSeries Sentry (with Tobii eye tracking) when playing Assassin’s Creed Rogue will experience true gaming immersion: as the player looks to the left or right of the screen, the camera will pan to accommodate the exploration of this new visual territory, creating an “infinite screen” experience.”
While the feature looks pretty interesting, it remains to be seen whether it’ll end up more as novelty than useful.
Assassin’s Creed: Rogue was released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 last year, on the same day as Assassin’s Creed: Unity. The story sees the return of various fan favorite characters from the Black Flag installment, as well as linking plot lines as far back as Assassin’s Creed III.
Pre-ordering the game right now through Uplay will allow you to choose one of seven other Assassin’s Creed games for free.
The digital edition also includes two bonus packs: The Siege of Fort de Sable and The Explorer. Finally, a physical Collector’s Bundle edition is also available to pre-order. It contains an artbook, lithographs, a soundtrack and bonus in-game armour and weapons.
