Altair takes dive in new Assassin's Creed screens

Three new screenshots from Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed reveal a dive maneuver executed by lead character Altair. Look, look at him fly.

In fact, view the shots quickly in sequence and its like your own little Assassin's Creed flip book, Altair leaping from a rooftop and twisting in mid-air to land safely on a handily positioned hay cart. Phew.

Ubisoft's assassin-'em-up wowed audiences at Microsoft's X06 event last year, an acrobatic, wall-scaling and rooftop-leaping star boasting superb animation and amazingly realistic crowd dynamics impressing onlookers. We await a fresh look with bated breath.
