If there’s one thing we’ve seen a lot of in the pre-release hype for the next Assassin’s Creed, it’s a lot of red-coated British being slaughtered at the hands of the games new protagonist, sticks-out-like-a-sore-thumb hooded assassin Connor – leading many to think that Ubisoft (and Connor!) just hated the English. That seems to not be the case – as we finally see Connor take it to a colonialist in this new trailer – showcasing the game’s updated Anvil engine.

It’s pretty impressive stuff – considering it’s still all running on relatively ancient current console hardware; most notable is the dynamic weather – and you’ll see our new hero Connor traversing a tree in rain, snow and sunshine. anvil Next, the engine powering this new Assassin’s Creed allows players to encounter up to 2000 NPC characters in a single sequence – and also adds dynamic water simulation to make the new Naval battles “epic.”

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
