Assassin’s Creed Rogue Arrives On PC In March With Eye Tracking Support

Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed Rogue has a release date on PC. The title, which was released in November on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, is due to arrive in just over one month.

In addition to the normal control schemes, Ubisoft has partnered with SteelSeries to incorporate its Sentry peripheral (which uses Tobii eye tracking). The company says that looking around the screen will pan the camera.

Ubisoft will be selling regular and deluxe versions of the game on the uPlay store starting on March 10, but those that pre-order will also get to choose one of six other Assassin’s Creed games and get two bonus packs (The Siege of Fort de Sable and The Explorer). The deluxe version comes with additional missions, weapons, and outfits.

SteelSeries has announced that anyone that purchases the Sentry starting today will get a free copy of Assassin’s Creed Rogue for PC. For more on the title, check out our review from November.

 

Our Take
I’ve not had the chance to try eye-tracking (beyond some VR implementation), but if it’s as intuitive and natural as Tobii claims, I’m curious. My concern is that, like most cameras tied to gaming, that reality doesn’t live up to the promise.
