I’m a fan of the Assassin’s Creed video game series. One of the game’s signature elements is Eagle Vision, which helps you locate enemies and your target in a sea of faces. To celebrate the upcoming release of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate on October 23, 2015, Ubisoft (the game developer) decided to create their own version of Eagle Vision with the help of a bald eagle.
They also released a video showing how they made the Eagle Vision promo.
They also released the raw footage.
As they write in the video description of the raw footage:
“Footage from the camera on a bald eagle free flying over London to coincide with the launch of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. This project was undertaken to showcase a feature in Assassin? Creed?Syndicate where players can use ?agle Visionh a tool enabling players to have an Eagle-Eyed perspective and vision to locate enemies and key features at distance.”
You don’t have to be a fan of the games to not appreciate the footage they got. It’s quite cool to go flying over London and seeing familiar landmarks.
What do you think about this footage? Would you want to see other cities from the back of an eagle? Will you be playing the next Assassin’s Creed game? Let us know in the comments.
