A hawk flies majestically across the screen, and bam: we're in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. Not so much a trailer as it is a montage of screenshots. But then, a video starts: Rome 1503. The Pope? Someone notices our intrepid assassin in the crowd, but everyone who takes notice is mysteriously taken down. Suddenly he's in the middle of the crowd, and surrounded. But the ring of soldiers who face him crumple to the ground.
How? A buttload of other assassins. That's right, this game is putting the brotherhood in ... brotherhood. You're facing off against the Templars in big, big way. Another trailer showed Ezio's ability to bed ladies until his villa is attacked. Luckily, you can now ride your horse through the cities, and they promise advanced horseback fighting in the final game. It's not just a light attack: enemy troops are bombardig you with cannons, and you can mount one of the wall cannons and fire back, although you have to wait for each cannonball to be loaded individually.
A new order will rise, and the scene ends with Ezio and brothers standing tall on the walls of the Roman Coliseum. Ezio will have multiple new gadgets and weapons at his disposal so he can "Strike first, Strike fast" when the game comes out on November 16. Multiplayer will be available at the Ubisoft booth, so we'll be checking that out and letting you know what's up.
