The Assassin’s Creed series has never been particularly amazing looking, but it’s never been a slouch, either. With the upcoming release of Assassin’s Creed 3, it appears that Ubisoft aims to change that with its AnvilNext engine, which seems to be pretty capable of performing awesome things. While hardcore purists will point out aliasing issues, low-res shadows, and some muddy textures, the AnvilNext engine appears to render living, breathing worlds much better than it predecessors. Check out the showcase trailer after the jump!
It certainly seems that Assassin’s Creed 3 will deliver an authentic and believable rendition of early colonial America. Considering that the Assassin’s Creed games have always been excellent portrayals of their respective settings, it only seems fitting that the latest iteration in the series will also do America justice.
