To get us nice and prepped for Assassin's Creed II, Ubisoft has done a similar move to Microsoft by creating a series of live-action shorts, which will eventually air as a single film on Spike TV at Midnight on November 11th; a date that coincides with the release of the game to PC, XBox 360 and PS3.
Assassin's Creed II - Short FIlm
Assassin's Creed Lineage is the title of the short film, which currently has its first part -- running at a whopping 15 minutes -- up on Youtube. The Assassin's Creed Page also features some new game trailers that look pretty effing sweet. I cannot wait to begin playing this game.
