E3 10: Cannon gameplay in Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood

A lot of the Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood gameplay shown during the Ubisoft press conference was impressive, but what stuck out the most for me was Ezio manning a huge cannon at the edge of his towering stone fortress. During a rather intense battle scene, Ezio grabs onto the back of a cannon while another of his companions loads it. Aiming with an on-screen reticule, Ezio then proceeds to fire the cannon, completly obliterating a far-off guard post in the distance.

It looks … amazing.

Even better, producers promise more stuff like this in Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood — namely more gadgets, weapons, and inventions that Ezio can use. As a fan of all the DaVinci stuff in Assassin’s Creed II, this news makes me very happy.

The full gameplay demo will be uploaded soon, so stick with Destructoid to check it out. IT IS TOTALLY WORTH IT!
