Ubisoft has given us another Assassin’s Creed 3 trailer today, this one spotlighting the game’s new engine.
Known as Anvil Next, this engine allows its developers to implement seasonal changes and “dynamic weather conditions,” render thousands of characters NPCs at a time, and improve AI far beyond its previous capacity. The trailer also shows off Connor, the game’s protagonist, noting that his design includes over 1,000 new animations, making him “the most detailed third-person action character ever created,” according to Ubisoft.
Apart from the game’s engine, this trailer also reveals that Connor is not strictly aligned with the British, as he slays a few Colonials as well.
Check out the trailer below, and be sure to stay tuned for all the latest updates on Assassin’s Creed 3, launching October 30 on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.[youtube id=”tsLO8GgA-P4″ width=”620″ height=”360″]
