The newest Assassin's Creed III trailer has arrived and it shows off the new game engine, Ubisoft's "AnvilNext."
This new engine, which "renders seamless worlds of nearly infinite possibility," will show what America was like before it was "America," the publisher boasts. The gorgeous landscapes and bustling colonial cities demonstrate that perfectly. The wild Frontier looks like nothing seen in an Assassin's Creed game yet, with snow covered areas and pristine rock formations. Boston and New York look like something out of a painting, with a visual style unique to the colonial era of America.
Assassin's Creed III shows everyday life for late 1700s America. Animals run through the wild and hunt prey, wagons carry supplies and people across bridges, soldiers dally about camps, farmers and hunters go about their chores, and plenty more to make AC3 feel like a window through time. There is also plenty of gameplay in the trailer, with new protagonist Connor slicing and dicing his way through absolutely massive battles. He is also a pretty solid ship captain and of course, a great assassin that is able to remain undetected in any environment.
Assassin's Creed III arrives on October 30 this year for the PC, PS3, and 360.
