Welcome to the Seven Years' War where you will play as the Assassin turned Templar, Shay Patrick Cormac in his moral adventure through the mid-18th century. While this game is set in the Seven Years' War, very little focus is on the war itself. In fact, you'll spend a majority of Assassin's Creed: Rogue playing your part in the ongoing and undying conflict between freedom and order, Assassins versus the Templars. Assassin's Creed: Rogue borrows features heavily from the last three instalments to the franchise; Assassin's Creed III, Assassin's Creed Liberation, and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. This is the first time the Assassin's Creed franchise has allowed you to control a Templar character for the entire game.
As far as the trophies go, Assassin's Creed: Rogue is probably one of the easiest Assassin's Creeds to finish. It's the first Assassin's Creed that does not force you to achieve 100% synchronization in the entire game, and it does not have any multiplayer grinds whatsoever. You will spend a large portion of your time on side objectives, such as conquering convoys and liberating supplies from supply camps, and little time with the actual story mode in the game. You can finish the game having only invested between 30 to 50 hours of play time and the hardest trophies of the game can be easily exploited using methods I've detailed in the trophy guide found below.
There are no glitched trophies in Assassin's Creed: Rogue, but several people have difficulty locating P.O.W. and Convoy ships for the Freedom Fighter and What's yours is mine trophies. Rest assured that these trophies are still obtainable and also detailed in the trophy guide found below.
Step One: Play through each Story Mission while achieving 100% synchronization.
For this step, you'll just need to focus on completing the story missions while paying special attention to the synchronization objectives that are shown throughout most memories. I recommend leveling up the Morrigan somewhat earlier in the game to make the final sequences much easier on yourself. A lot of the end memories feature ship battles that are more difficult than they need to be if you're neglecting your ship upgrades. The story itself will only take you about 7 or 8 hours to complete, depending on how much time you spend replaying missions for full synchronization or only miscellaneous trophies. Something to note is that if you feel as though a particular objective is too difficult for you, you can skip it and replay that mission later when you've upgraded Shay some more. Be aware, however, that you can only take items into replay missions that you had unlocked by the time you played that mission. For example, you cannot take the grenade launcher into any mission before Sequence 3 - Memory 4, when you actually acquire that item. You can bring upgraded armor and weapons into memory replays though.
Upon completing Step 1, you will earn:
The end of youth
Making new friends
One legend dies, and one is born
No page unturned
Templar then; Templar now
Did I do that?
He's not dead, is he?
A worthy cause
Sending a message
Achieve full synchronization
Step Two: Clean Up
In this step, you'll be chasing after all the different collectible and activity trophies. This step is where you'll be spending the most time on while moving towards the platinum. Use the progress tracker and maps in game to complete the remaining trophies. I recommend viewing the Denied, Stalker killer, and Do not want trophies before you capture too many gang headquarters. Several of the trophies can be paired together and earned at once, or are related to one another without any special attention. For example, completing all the native hills and ice caves will give you the King of the Hill trophy and you will also meet all the requirements to earn the Native Armor immediately after finishing the native hill or ice cave, which in turn gives you the Ancient Hero trophy. The collectibles take anywhere between 20 to 30 hours to complete depending on how long you spend in each area, what methods you use to earn kill trophies, or how lucky you are with naval convoy and P.O.W. ship spawns. The hardest trophy to complete legitimately is Master of the North Atlantic, for completing the 4 legendary ship battles, but this trophy can be made a lot easier by using the immortal cheat method that I've listed in the trophy guide below. You'll also need to keep in mind that you need to complete 65 Abstergo challenges in order to unlock the Veteran cheat for the Supplier trophy. Most of these challenges will be unlocked naturally by playing through the story or gathering other collectibles.
Upon completing Step 2, you will earn:
Capture all Gang HQs
What's yours is mine
Do not want
Knight of Yore
For the Empire!
I'll take that
Master of the North Atlantic
King of the Hill
This war of mine
Hunt the hunted
Which will ultimately unlock:
