This Assassin's Creed Rogue gameplay footage looks WAIT PENGUINS?!

Ubisoft has released a walkthrough of a mission in Assassin's Creed Rogue, this year's other addition to the franchise, exclusive to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The sequence, set on ships in the frigid waters off the coast of Nova Scotia, resembles its predecessor, Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag.

In the mission, we watch the player, the captain of a Templar ship in the British fleet, attack a rival French ship. The naval combat includes many familiar elements, along with burning oil and a machine gun-like weapon. After the scrimmage, the character investigates an icy shipwreck, spotting penguins and a polar bear!

Apparently you can hunt the polar bears in this game, which is great if you're a horrid monster.

Correction: Brace yourselves. Apparently, the birds in the trailer technically aren't penguins. They're great auks. Warning, the following link below will depress you. The adorable great auk is now extinct. So, if you can hunt great auks in this game, then you can participate in a reenactment of the historical extinction of this beautiful bird. Video games!
