'Assassin's Creed: Lineage' First Short Film Making Its Debut Next Week

In a vast open world environment, Assassin's Creed II invites players to incarnate Ezio, a privileged young noble in Renaissance Italy who's been betrayed by the rival ruling families of Italy, and seeking vengeance.

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 (CGI) 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, and give insight on the game's back story and universe.

The first of the three episodes from the new Assassin's Creed: Lineage short movies will debut on YouTube. Beginning on October 27, 2009, YouTube will have the first episode of the short movies on its homepage in eight countries throughout the world for a period of 24 hours.

"Ubisoft is excited to share a new Assassin's Creed experience with the public. The Assassin's Creed Lineage film series is part of Ubisoft's ongoing efforts to reinforce its intellectual properties by bringing them to multiple entertainment mediums, providing gamers with a more immersive experience when they play as Ezio, the master assassin of Assassin's Creed II,” stated Yves Guillemot, chief executive officer of Ubisoft.

The short films will whet the appetite of game players and fans of this type of cinematography in advance of the in-store release of the video game on November 17, 2009. Assassin's Creed: Lineage will also introduce some of the characters that players will meet in the game: both foes and friends of the family, like Lorenzo de Medici, the Italian statesman and de facto ruler of the Florentine Republic during the Italian Renaissance period.
