Assassin’s Creed II: Lineage


If you haven’t, you should check out Assassin’s Creed II: Lineage, a short film trilogy. I find it to be a great resource for inspiration. From what I’ve heard, they form a back story for Assassin’s Creed II. Check out all three of the films below.

Please note that they are bloody/violent (based off of an M-rated video game), so watch at your own risk.

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.
