As the launch of Assassin’s Creed II approaches, Ubisoft has rolled out the first of its ambitious three-part short film series which promises to offer some insight on the upcoming sequel’s back story and universe.
Developed by Ubisoft’s Hybride Technologies, the visual effects studio behind 300 and Sin City, Assassin’s Creed: Lineage combines live action and computer generated imagery to explore the events that happen just before the Assassin’s Creed II game starts. The short films revolve around Ezio’s father, Giovanni Auditore da Firenze.
You’ll find Assassin’s Creed Lineage Part 1 available to view in HD over on YouTube.
Assassin’s Creed II is scheduled for release on November 20 for Xbox 360 and PS3. A PC version will follow in 2010.
