Ubisoft has released its 1st of 3 Lineage movies that it will put on Youtube to create some hype for Assassin's Creed 2. AC2 will hit stores on November 17th.
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.
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.
Episode # 1:
1476, Florence. Giovanni Auditore, an assassin, attempts to thwart a conspiracy against one of Lorenzo de Medicis allies. The ensuing inquiry will take him to Milan where he tries to prevent the worst from happening.
Watch out for Part 2 coming soon.
Clocking in at a lengthy 14 minutes, the episode is very good. It was made from the same kids who did a little film called 300 and Sin City. Be sure to check it out if you're an AC fan, but if you're like me and too busy to watch something 14 minutes long without seeing naked people... I totally understand.
