ASSASSIN’S CREED VR is a film-based live action cinematic virtual reality experience produced all over the world that shot concurrently on-set with the ASSASSIN’S CREED film production.
ASSASSIN’S CREED, starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, opens in theaters worldwide on Dec. 21, 2016. The newly announced AMD Radeon™ Pro Duo graphics card and AMD LiquidVR™ technology are foundational elements across the entire production of the ASSASSIN’S CREED VR experience.
By shooting on location, the studio is able to recreate the sets from the film at an extremely high quality level, using massive textures and complex geometry captured in places like Malta, Spain, and London.
