There is no doubt that Assassin’s Creed Unity is absolutely gorgeous, but how does it change the formula?  Well, Assassin’s Creed Unity Creative Director Alex Amancio takes us through a five minute video that shows what the new Anvil game engine brings to the table. Advanced reflection mapping, HDR graphics, and volumetric lighting and fog are some of the buzzwords that all spell that it’s absolutely gorgeous. They’ve also built some of the incredible landmarks of Paris to life in a 1:1 scale. Put simply, check out this video to see why we are so very excited about this fresh breath of life into the Assassin’s Creed franchise.

Set in a once-magnificent Paris, Assassin’s Creed Unity plunges into the terror of the 1789 French Revolution and features the most dense and immersive Assassin’s Creed city ever created. Through the streets of Paris, the starving inhabitants are set to take up arms for freedom and equality. In this time of chaos and brutality, a young man named Arno, wounded by the loss of those he loved, sets out on a deadly path of redemption. Arno’s pursuit throws him into the middle of a ruthless struggle for the fate of a nation and transforms him into a true Master Assassin.

Assassin’s Creed Unity is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on October 28th.
