Assassin’s Creed Rogue coming to PC with Tobii eyetracking integration

Ubisoft has announced Assassin’s Creed Rogue is coming to PC with Tobii eye-tracking integration.

Assassin’s Creed Rogue is coming to PC, and to make it a bit different, Ubisoft has added support for Tobii Tech eye-tracking technology.

The PC port of Assassin’s Creed Rogue will arrive on March 10, 2015 in the UK and anyone pre-ordering will get access to one of seven bonus Assassin’s Creed games of their choosing. You’ll also get two additional bonus packs if you pre-order the PC digital version.

Assassin’s Creed Rogue is the world’s first AAA title to incorporate eye-tracking as part of the gameplay. It comes packaged with the SteelSeries Sentry, the first gaming eye-tracker.

Eye tracking is such a natural way to interact with a game and creates tons of potential opportunities for gameplay immersion,” said Corneliu Vasiliu, Producer at Ubisoft Kiev. “We are one of the first to integrate this technology in a video game, and the first to implement eye tracking as a gameplay input in a game of that scale – providing Assassin’s Creed Rogue gamers with an entirely new, complementary input to the keyboard and mouse.”

“We recognized the power of eye tracking early and were quick to work with Tobii to create a completely new way to experience a game – We are really proud of the result with Assassin’s Creed Rogue.”

Using the eye-tracking technology, you will be able to control Shay’s gaze with your own eyes, with the scene camera panning to accommodate your field of vision – i.e. you look left and Shay will look to the left of the world.

“This is only the beginning of eye-tracking in gaming. It is an important step in Tobii’s long term vision to create a strong ecosystem of games and apps that use eye tracking to create even more immersive experiences”, said Oscar Werner, President of Tobii Tech, a division of Tobii.

The idea is that PC gamers won’t be restricted to the size of their screens when it comes to field of vision with eye-tracking technology. It’s something Tobii are calling an “Infinite Screen” experience.
