Assassin’s Creed: Rogue PC Launch Date, System Specs, Eye Tracking Tech, and Deluxe Edition Confirmed

Out since November on PS3 and Xbox 360, Assassin’s Creed: Rogue will make its Windows PC debut coming up on March 10th. Pre-ordering the game from the Uplay Shop, whether it’s the standard edition ($49.99) or the deluxe edition ($59.99) featuring an extra mission as well as new weapons and outfits, will come with the added bonus of a free copy of a previous title from a pool of Assassin’s Creed, Assassin’s Creed II Deluxe, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood Deluxe, Assassin’s Creed Revelations, Assassin’s Creed III, Assassin’s Creed Liberation, or Assassin’s Creed Freedom Cry. (Obviously Black Flag and Unity are still a bit too new to be considered for freebies.)

For the extra $10, the deluxe edition offers the following bonus DLC:

Sailing onward, the PC version of Rogue will be fully integrated with Tobii Tech’s eye tracking technology as an optional control input to complement mouse and keyboard gameplay. PC gamers armed with the SteelSeries Sentry peripheral will be able to enjoy an “infinite screen” experience by looking left and right to to pan the camera. Seems rather unnecessary, but hey, cool tech.
