New feature trailer explaining the Animus device that will allow the user to relive his ancestor's memories.
The Animus device is a crucial part of the Assassin's Creed lore and has seen several iterations in the games. However, it always involved the user sitting back in the chair, when he/she is plugged into the Animus device.
In contrast to that, the movie will see the Animus being a very interactive machinery that will allow the user, Callum Lynch, to mimic the movements of his ancestor as he learns the skills of an Assassin.
Here is an interview with actor Michael Fassbender, who explains the reasoning behind the Animus re-design. While I'm not too fond of straying away from the source material, I think it sounds very practical and does make sense.
Just 16 more days for the movie release in Singapore!
