Assassin’s Creed 3 Drops the Hammer with the AnvilNext Trailer

No fooling, guys, this game just needs to come out. While you shouldn’t take my word on anything Assassin’s Creed related, given that I am a one-man Assassin’s Creed hype machine, you can’t deny that Assassin’s Creed 3 looks like an awesome leap up from 2. And when you consider how much 2 improved over the original, I expect that my mind will be blown, a phrase I don’t toss around lightly.

Ubisoft just put out a trailer for the new engine powering Assassin’s Creed 3, AnvilNext, and it looks hot. Seriously, check it out.

I do like that the music swell early in the trailer is accompanied by shots of people doing menial tasks. Regardless, I’m still high on the hype for this game and I can’t wait to get my grubby mitts on it in October. What do you guys think? Does Assassin’s Creed 3 continue to impress? How do you think AnvilNext will translate on the PC version?

  1. As much as I have loved every assassins creed game so far and am sure I will love this one the combat still looks to be too easy. Its hard to tell from a trailer alone but it looks like enemies still just stand around attacking one or two at a time.

    Don’t get me wrong assassins creed combat is always fun and makes you feel like a badass but it would be nice to have a challenge once in a while that isn’t based around the enemy having tons of HP or blocking 9/10 of your attacks.

    At the very least I would like to see a group of 7 or so guards and think “Oh no, better hide” instead of “Hey, free money!”

  2. I will be looking for your review on Anthony’s next Hyperbolic Chamber review critique Mitch. This does look pretty cool, thought I agree with James Freeman’s comment. Also am I the only one who thinks they should add a little classic splinter cell stealth to the series?
