Forget what you think you know about Assassin's Creed.
Sure, that's an extremely strong statement to make, particularly if you've been following the game as closely as IGN have. The upcoming action title, which features an assassin named Altair during the Third Crusade, has been a heavily anticipated action title ever since it made its first debut two years ago. Even the latest demo that IGN was shown at this year's E3 generated greater buzz, as players tracked down and killed a slave trader. But as IGN have found when we checked out the latest build of the title, Assassin's Creed is much more than killing influential people, climbing buildings and making stealthy escapes into crowds. In fact, Assassin's Creed is designed to be much more of a sandbox-like experience, giving you the freedom to explore and complete missions whenever and however you want. We went to Montreal to check out the latest build, which was going to be shown on the floor at TGS, and found out just how malleable our explorations as an assassin would be.
