With just over 24 hours till the official opening of this year’s E3 Expo, Activision have revealed what they’ll be wetting our appetites with at the show.

Despite not being quite ready to reveal the latest in the Assassin’s Creed series, some coercion may have taken place and today, the world gets it’s first look at Assassin’s Creed Unity and bugger me backwards the graphics look INSANE!!!

There’s no release date or anything set yet but there’s promise of plenty of updates and news to come over the next few months. It’s reasonable to assume that come next Autumn, this is what all games are going to look like. We’ve since glimpses of it with The Division and Watch Dogs and it would appear devs are ditching Xbox 360 and PS3 and this is the sort of visual excellence we can expect from titles.
