With Assassin’s Creed: Unity coming exclusively to PC, PS4 and Xbox One, gamers who have not yet decided to update to the new console generation probably feel left out of the annual Assassin’s Creed holiday season release hype. No worries, there’s another new Assassin’s Creed game coming out this fall, and this one’s only going to be on PS3 and Xbox 360.

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue is set to take place during the Seven Years War across 18th century North American locales such as the New York City, the Appalachian River Valley and the Artic Circle.

Rogue derives its name from its main playable character, Shay Patrick Cormac, an Assassin who has gone rogue so to speak after suffering some sort of betrayal by The Brotherhood and is now hunting Assassins as a Templar. That should provide a interesting change of perspective from the Assassin’s Creed norm.

Shay is armed with familiar swords and, of course, his trusty hidden blade, but his main weapon is the new air rifle and its various ammunitions, as well as different types of grenades used to distract, kill or stun enemies. Naval combat and exploration also makes a return as players will be able to sail the icy waters of the North Atlantic Ocean and lookout for icebergs and glaciers aboard the good ship Morrigan.

Watch for Assassin’s Creed: Rogue on store shelves this November 11th.
