Video: Assassin's Creed Lineage - Part 1

With Assassin’s Creed II proverbially around the corner, more back story is something fans of the now franchise with more than likely want to see. There was a buzz over the short films that came about in the wake of Halo, but how about a 14 minute romp through Italy's past through the eye's of Assassin's Creed? Count you in?


When the Duke of Milan is brutally murdered, Giovanni Auditore - an Assassin - is dispatched to investigate the crime. His mission: determine who is responsible and why. 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.
