Forts are back from Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and although they do not play as quite a big role in Rogue’s proceedings, they are still important. Once you have captured a fort they also grant you access to additional fast travel points and performs a similar function to synchronising a viewpoint in a city, but instead of showing an area of a settlement, forts will reveal a large block of the world map, showing all of the locations, treasures and collectibles in that section of the world.
There are a total of 6 forts in total in the game and the fort takeover missions can be undertaken at any time after completion of memory sequence 3-03 ‘Circumstances’. They are classified by the game itself as easy, medium or hard and they really do live up to their labels!
Each of the fort takeovers occurs in essentially the same way with players approaching via the sea, using the Morrigan to destroy the fort’s defences and then docking, entering the fort and killing specific targets inside. The number of defences and targets inside will change depending on the level of difficulty.
Liberating all forts will earn the achievement/trophy ‘For the Empire’.
