Here are all three parts to the Assassins Creed: Lineage short film that Ubisoft developed in celebration of the new Assassins Creed 2 Video game coming out next week. Lineage is the prequel to the Assassin's Creed II story, revealing the machinations of 15th century Italy through the actions of Ezio's father, Giovanni.
When the Duke of Milan is brutally murdered, the Assassin Giovanni Auditore is dispatched to investigate. The answers he uncovers implicate Italy's most powerful families reaching all the way back to the Vatican itself. As Giovanni draws closer to the truth, he becomes hunted himself. He must expose the conspirators before he joins their ever growing list of victims.
This short film was done extremely well, it's a great looking film with a some impressive production value. I really enjoyed watching this movie, and I'd like to see a full length film version eventually. Check it out below and tell us what you think!
