You’ve most-likely never heard of it before, but AnvilNext happens to be the powerful engine that Ubisoft is using for Assassin’s Creed III. Responsible for all of the game’s jaw-dropping action, visceral environments and digitized realism, it’s essentially the heart of the action-adventure title. That is, a title which looks like it’ll end up being one of the year’s best offerings, if not its absolute best.
Below, you’ll find a brief video which discusses the aforementioned engine and the in-game elements that it has allowed Ubisoft’s development team to create. Although it’s just another excuse to show off impressive gameplay footage, it’s tough to complain.
Assassin’s Creed III will take us back to a pivotal point in American history on October 30.
