Assassin’s Creed Lineage is a 35-minute short film which looks closely at the actions of Giovanni, Ezio’s father – fitting in just before the events of Assassin’s Creed II.

The film itself was released online back in 2009 (we’re guessing just before the events of Assassin’s Creed II?), but it’s taken a little while to make the leap into physical media.

If you choose to pick up the disk, you’ll also receive a making-of featurette, developer diaries, trailers, and the animated short Assassin’s Creed Ascendance.

…on the other hand, if you prefer to watch it online, we’ve got Assassin’s Creed Lineage right here for you.

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.

Released on November 15th by New Video, the film was developed using Ubisoft‘s Hybride Technologies – which you may (or may not) recognise as the tech which powered 300 and Sin City.

Expect more about this one at Comic-Con, to be held in San Diego next weekend.
