One of the key draws of the upcoming Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is that it includes an all-new city for you to explore: Rome, home to the Vatican and a damn fine cup of coffee.

It's a shame there's no coffee on offer in the game, then, but the Vatican at least plays a starring role. In this clip, comprised entirely of in-engine footage, we'll see not only the highlights of this new playground but also be reminded just how tough it is telling Assassin's Creed's main characters apart. Everyone's either a thin man with frilly clothes and a beard, or a fat man with frilly clothes and a beard!

Brotherhood will be out next month on Xbox 360 and PS3, with a PC release planned early next year.
