If numbers are your forte then hold your breath for some impressive figures heading your way, courtesy of Assassin’s Creed III‘s new trailer. Ubisoft are showcasing the capabilities of new engine AnvilNext, boasting some impressive stats in the process.
Over a thousand new animations have been added for Connor alone, allowing for more freedom and fluidity when fighting and climbing. A whole host of new abilities make the combat look far more impressive than in previous releases in the series, probably something to do with the awesome tomahawk and hidden knife combos being raked up almost effortlessly.
The numbers don’t stop there. Up to a possible two thousand NPC’s can be present in one area at any time, giving massive scope to battle scenes and no doubt making cities and towns feel like bustling and energetic environments. AI intelligence has also been dramatically improved, leading to neighbourhoods and surrounding areas looking far more advanced than previously.
Four seasons of weather have been introduced to change landscapes and force you to adapt to differing combat situations. Updated visuals also factor into the trailer as you would expect with any new release.
