Assassin’s Creed Embers Short Movie Announced

Ubisoft announces that Assassin’s Creed Embers, a new computer generated animated short movie, will ship when Assassin’s Creed Revelations hits store shelves November 15. Assassin’s Creed Embers will expand on the final chapter of the life of master assassin Ezio Auditore and a journey that has spanned more than four decades.

The animated short, developed by UbiWorkshop, will be available with the Assassin’s Creed Revelations Animus Edition, with the Collector Edition, and for digital download on Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation Network.

Initially launched in 2007, the first three Assassin’s Creed® games have sold more than 28 million units worldwide, and the franchise is now established as one of the best-selling series on next generation consoles.

Managing Editor of ManaPool, Peter lives in York, UK and is a great fan and master of turn-based strategy games. If he isn't playing one of those, you'll probably find him in a role-playing game instead. He's definitely not afraid to provide a straight up opinion on any game and has a strong like for indie developers. We all start small, after all.
