A quick impressions article via EGMR for Assassin's Creed: Rogue after the author played it at rAge 2014 in South Africa.
Quote: "The new character and partial setting — at least for the gameplay demonstration — are also the first really intriguing aspect for quite some time in the series; what would happen if an assassin went rogue? That’s what the game is trying its best to portray for us, and while we can’t speak on story we can at least speak on the location of the demo being the Arctic tundra which displayed the Northern Lights in their full glory. It was beautiful and captivating and while the final product is probably going to be more of the same, meaning tail missions for everyone (!), we can’t help but adore it for specifically that reason.
