Assassin's Creed leaps into action

Thursday 28 September 2006
We've grabbed two brand new videos of medieval murder game Assassin's Creed for your eyes this morning.

First there's a trailer featuring horse-riding hero Altair's incredible climbing skills and some great fighting, and then we've got some footage straight from Microsoft's X06 event showing off some proper gameplay, narrated by lovely Jade Redmond, the game's producer. Hit the movies tab to watch.

Towards the end of the X06 footage you'll get another sneak peek at the mysterious futuristic backdrop to Assassin's Creed and its Middle Eastern action.

Due out early next year, Assassin's Creed is going to be one of the best examples of true next-gen gameplay - and we just can't wait to get our hands bloody in a playable session.
