Hail Mighty Readers and Followers of the Calloused Thumbs,
Our friends at Ubisoft have let us have know about the new Anvil engine powering the forthcoming Assassin's Creed III game.
It's pretty slick and will allow a lot more detail with smoother flowing graphics, but why listen to us, have a look at this trailer:
Assassin's Creed 3 will be available for the following consoles on the 31st October:
The American Colonies, 1775. A brave young warrior fights to save his homeland. But what begins as a struggle over territory turns into an extraordinary journey that will transform him into a Master Assassin—and will forever change the destiny of a nation.
