Ubisoft Hammers On The Anvil Engine In New Video

Ubisoft is touting the latest version of its Anvil Engine, which powers the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Unity. According to creative director Alex Amancio, the new technology gives his team the opportunity to build more complex worlds.

Unity also features more complete interiors than we’ve seen in an Assassin’s Creed title. As you can see from the video below (and the previous gameplay run-throughs), the inside of buildings are as important for traversal and locomotion as the exteriors.

We also get a look at an as yet unannounced female character in the video (above), though it’s not clear yet what role she plays. Assassin’s Creed Unity is slated for release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on October 28. For more, check out our E3 preview.

  • Damn... That was pretty.

  • I guarantee the civilians will be as uninteractable (not a word) as always.
  • Please no comments on "Oh but she's not a playable assassin." Can't wait for this game, technical aspect seems magnificent. Really need a video like this to explain how they are changing the story mission format (no tailing/ eavesdropping, hopefully more focus on assassinations), and I am more than sold. Also, that Ezio AC music at the beginning of the video; good memories.
  • Good lord, it took them a YEAR to design Notre Dame??

  • I hope they do better than what they did in AC3. Didn't the inside of random buildings amount to nothing more than a short animation parkour-ing through them?
  • And then comes a scaled down version. I know what happened with Watch Dogs.
  • Oh but she's not a playable assassin. Sorry, Carcosam. This game looks fantastic. I was let down by AC3 and 4, but I don't know if I'll care after watching this. Hopefully the "optional" coop doesn't get in the way of the single player experience.
  • The parkour looks really nice.
  • She's not even an assassin. In the video (but not in that screencap) you can see a templar cross on the right side of her collar.

  • Gorgeous, as a longtime AC fan from the very first AC I can't wait to play this. This looks like the entry that will get the story back on track.
  • This looks even more impressive than the FOX engine used for MGSV.
  • That does look really good. Stiff iffy though.
  • that ending was so *** up.
  • Looks beautiful. After the nice resurgence IV had after III, I'm really looking forward to playing Unity.

  • She kind of looks like Ellie as a woman.
  • I'm just happy they're going back to cities and not small towns. Also happy it won't have anymore annoying sailing.

  • Man this looks impressive! Paris looks gorgeous, can't wait to explore it!!! I do wonder who that woman could be . . .
  • Wow this looks gorgeous.

  • oh i can't wait!!!
