There’s no doubting that the Assassin’s Creed games have always looked and played great but Ubisoft isn’t taking a break in development. Released today is a quick look at Assassin’s Creed III’s heavily updated AnvilNext engine which only strives to impress. With over 1000 new animations for Connor alone, up to 2000 NPCs in a single sequence, improved artificial intelligence, dynamic weather systems, and so much more, Assassin’s Creed III is a major jump for the franchise. It definitely helps that the game looks fantastic and is more fluid than ever before.
Assassin’s Creed III will be released for the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC on October 30th, with a Wii U version coming sometime within the system’s launch window.
