'Assassin's Creed 3's' newest video shows off its AnvilNext engine

Ubisoft highlights the changes to its AnvilNext engine powering Assassin's Creed 3.

If you've been paying close attention to the development of Assassin's Creed 3, you may not see much new in Ubisoft's new walkthrough of the game's AnvilNext engine. For those who haven't gorged on all that sweet, violent Assassin's Creed 3 media, this may be a great place to start.

Ubisoft proudly touts AnvilNext's visual innovations, showing an engine capable of rendering the bustling 18th century cities of Boston and New York, as well as forests, snowy mountain ranges, and the flora and fauna that inhabit an untamed America. See AnvilNext's improvements in animation and its flexibility in rendering hand-to-hand combat, naval battles, and large scale military engagements in Assassin's Creed 3's latest hype trailer.

Assassin's Creed 3 is slated for release on October 30th on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in North America, with versions for the PC and Wii U to follow.
