Ubisoft has always been a company building franchises from IP, Assassins Creed and Tom Clancy are two of the oldest and most treasured and will now be featured in an art gallery exhibition in The One Academy Gallery in Malaysia.
The exhibition has been designed by Ubisoft Singapore studios and features a lot of art from the Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag series and Tom Clancy universe. The art is meant to show how video game visuals can be pieces of art, without all the interactivity a video game brings.
Ubisoft puts time and effort into scoping out the scenery for the Assassins Creed games, sourcing out different events that took place between the time period and what exactly happened in the background of a conflict, along with ideas for terrain design and quests.
This does give the art team a hard task, instead of creating a level they need to create an open world city that looks similar to what the city did in real life, at that time. The design team will then built this to a smaller size and design the pathways and buildings the Assassin will climb.
Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag was probably the biggest step up for Ubisoft in terms of size; the Caribbean is huge and filled with side-quests to keep the time. Reviews did peg it as slightly repetitive, especially when the player is not focusing on the story.
The universe Ubisoft has designed in Assassins Creed and Tom Clancy is one we are sure lots of people will enjoy. Ubisoft is targeting the exhibition at students who want to learn about art in games and how something goes from concept to build in the video game world.
