While you can probably find the full version of the short film Assassin's Creed: Lineage out there somewhere on the nets, the high quality mix of live action and 3D rendering from effects house Hybride Technologies (300, Sin City) just begs to be watched on your HD set. Flatiron Film Company has announced that you will soon be able to as they are releasing the standalone short along with a host of goodies on Blu-ray (and DVD) November 15th (to coincide with Ubisoft's release of Assassin's Creed Revelations game).
The story takes place before Assassin's Creed 2 and "explores the roots of Ezio's epic story arc by following his father, Giovanni Auditore da Firenze, as he unravels a sinister conspiracy in Renaissance Italy." Anyone who has played the games can appreciate the richness of the world and the idea of a film exploring that world is pretty appealing. The discs will also include the "Assassin's Creed: Ascendance" animated short, trailers, and developer diaries.
Check out the trailer below.
