Ubisoft took to the floor of E3 on Monday to announce a series of new gaming projects that the company would be working on -- one of which included the fourth installment in the hit franchise Assassin's Creed series -- which will be titled Unity.
Confirming the previously rumoured four player co-op multiplayer, the gameplay showed off some classic Assassin's Creed gameplay and truly impressive next gen visuals.
Ubisoft announced the game in March with a teaser trailer confirming its setting in revolutionary France. Developed for PC, Xbox One and PS4, another game, Assassin's Creed: Comet is being developed for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
In a report by ZER the company also announced that the global leader in visual computing technologies, NVIDIA Corp. recently extended its gaming alliance with Ubisoft to provide support to the latter’s most popular games such as Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, The Crew, and Tom Clancy’s The Division.
The collaboration is aimed at bringing an enhanced gaming experience to PCs. This extended deal is a positive for NVIDIA, as it will help the company to gain market share among gaming content developers. We believe that NVIDIA’s GameWorks suite of tools, which improve the visual effects of games, will help to generate additional demand for its graphics technology.
Ubisoft and Nvidia have extended their “strategic partnership” that sees the latter's GameWorks Team work closely with Ubisoft's developers to maximise the use of GeForce-focused graphics tech such as TXAA antialiasing, HBAO+ ambient occlusion and PhysX.
The games in question are Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, The Crew and The Division.
“Working with NVIDIA has enabled us to bring an enhanced gameplay experience to our PC players,” Ubisoft's senior VP of sales and marketing Geoffroy Sardin said. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with NVIDIA on our biggest upcoming titles.”
Nvidia's senior VP of content and technology Tony Tamasi added: “We’re excited to continue our long-term partnership with Ubisoft in bringing our latest PC technology to their games. Through GameWorks, we have been able to add unique visual and gameplay innovations to deliver amazing experiences for these stellar Ubisoft games. I can’t wait to play them myself.”
