Assassin’s Creed Unity Trailer: The Anvil Engine is Gorgeous

Subscribe to Rock 108 on

Watching Assassin’s Creed Unity’s engine in action makes us grateful that it remains a next-gen exclusive.

Ubisoft has released a new trailer for Assassin’s Creed Unity which showcases the capabilities of its new Anvil engine, and the results are jaw-dropping. Narrated by the game’s Creative Director, Alex Amancio, this trailer walks us through the Anvil engine’s process and demos what it can do. Just watch as the Parisian backdrop gets more and more detailed to the point of cinematic cutscene quality but the environment turns out to be Unity’s natural gameplay. Everything from facial expressions to the distinct actions of each individual person in the massive crowds of Paris are fully detailed. In particular, the Notre Dame cathedral is the highlight of the Anvil engine, rendered in beautiful accuracy and is an obvious pinnacle of video game architecture.

We must say that there are too many games released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One that do not look next-gen at all due to having multi-console releases over to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Watching this video of Assassin’s Creed Unity left us thinking to ourselves, “This is what next-gen should look like,” and we are grateful that Unity will be next-gen exclusive.

Assassin’s Creed Unity will launch on Oct. 28 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
