Professional stuntman and free runner Ronnie Shalvis has taken to the streets as Altaïr ibn-La'Ahad.

Altaïr ibn-La'Ahad's free-running shenanigans in Assassin's Creed had the gaming world abuzz with glee over an exciting new gaming mechanic.

Aired at PAX during Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed II panel, this video shows professional parkourist (is that a word?) Ronnie Shalvis rebounding off walls and back flipping around in a display that makes us simultaneously deeply impressed and deeply envious.

It's set to a piece called "Assassin" by composer Stephen J Anderson, and was shot on a Canon 5D Mark III and a Glidecam HD 2000. You can watch a behind-the-scenes video here.
