The team at Ubisoft has said that for Assassins Creed III, they had to basically rebuild everything for the game. At the very center of that is the new engine for ACIII, AnvilNext. This new engine looks absolutely stunning. If you can’t tell it’s a huge graphical improvement over previous games, even Revelations.
Everything is immaculately detailed, from the everyday life of lumberjacks out on the frontier, to the many interactions of wildlife in the forests. Even the way Connor moves just looks better than ever. The way he runs, dodges obstacles, and climbs all look way more fluid than before. Not to mention the new dynamic weather systems in place, and the absolutely amazing looking settings for the naval battles. I could go on all day about this new engine, but I may as well just show you the trailer for it below.
