North America, 18th century. After surviving a plot to end his life, Shay Patrick Cormac, formerly a fearless young member of the Brotherhood of Assassins, transforms into a grim and committed Templar on the hunt for assassins.
In this, the darkest chapter yet of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, you witness Shay as he descends into the darkness and sets off on a course that will forever change the fate of the Brotherhood. And this time, not only Shay's story is different. You also have the chance to experience the story in a whole new way – through the eyes of Shay himself.
For the first time, when you scan the shadows along the houses in front of you, or the crowd in the market square, the whole view follows your eyes, making the gaming experience more immersive than ever before. ”You feel so inside the game that you will never want to use something else,” said Corneliu Vasiliu, the game's producer, about his own experience playing with the eye tracker control. Others agree.
These effects are possible due to the Infinite Screen feature, which in turn is possible thanks to eye tracking technology. The eye tracker reads the movement of your eyes and adjusts the view on the screen accordingly.
This turns your extraordinary journey, and Shay’s – through New York City, the wild river valley and far away to the icy-cold waters of the North Atlantic in pursuit of your ultimate goal: to bring down the Assassin’s for good – into a spectacular gaming experience.
Infinite Screen. The view on the screen always centers on where you’re looking. Because of this, the screen seems never to end, allowing you to immerse in the game without having to manually adjust the view all the time.
Pause/Play. When you look away from the screen, the game pauses. When you look back, it immediately resumes.
Eye tracking capabilities are built in into Assassin’s Creed Rogue. If you have the Tobii EyeX Controller and the EyeX software installed, you just need to start the game to get going.
