Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood Flying Glitch

17 Nov, 2010

While recording some footage for our upcoming video review for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, I came across this glitch. Overall, I haven’t experienced many glitches, but I thought this was too cool to not share.

    That was hilarious. I want to see if this is present in my copy of the game. Ah, glitches are so fun, especially Red Dead Redemption’s. Oh, and launch events for games are awesome, especially if you have the chance to win free stuff.

    All this need is “can you read my mind” as a background track.

      I kinda prefer “Fly Like an Eagle,” since well Ezio means eagle, and you are high up anyways.

    And here I am thinking that the best view of the city you can get is from the top of the tallest viewpoint.

      I jumped off a building using the tackle move to get a thief. I accidentally landed right top of his head and instead of tackling him, I just bounced up like Mario off of a mushroom, but I never came back down. 1 in a million. I could never reproduce it if I tried.

        Ah, that’s too bad. I always wanted to watch the AC cities from that high.

        Weird glitch, though. Sounds like massive physics clipping.

        During a fight, I got on a horse, and attempted to Air Assassinate a guard. But instead of stabbing him, I landed ON HIS HEAD and started floating straight up into the air. Went so high, I went above the clouds, saw the horizon curve, and the blackness of space.

    First let me start off by saying hello, as I am newly registered for the sole purpose of leaving a comment. I too am currently experiencing the “flying” glitch as of Sequence 4, Memory 6. I jumped down off a building onto the memory start marker, and swiftly took flight. At first I wasn’t sure what the hell was going on, and got rather pissed. But let me tell you, the longer I sat there and watched him go higher and farther, the cooler this became. I can barely see the Colosseum, and the Pantheon is little bigger than a golf ball! Very cool to see the grand city of Rome all in one frame! Btw good to know I am not the only one to experience this neat glitch, and much rather this than that nasty trouble I read about with the tunnels….

      Welcome to the site! I kinda hope they fix this glitch because apparently it’s more common than I thought.

      On the other hand, I still want to be able to see the entire city. I wish they gave a free camera mode once you unlock the entire map or beat the game. It’s a gorgeous recreation of Rome and it shouldn’t be missed.
