November 1, 2011 – Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed multiplatinum videogame franchise has sold more than 30 million units worldwide and includes videogames, toys, apparel, novels, comic books and soundtracks.

On November 15 New Video’s Flatiron Film Company will release ASSASSIN’S CREED: LINEAGE on digital, in HD on Blu-ray and on DVD day-and-date with the highly anticipated video game release of Assassin’s Creed Revelations, the latest installment in the award-winning franchise.

ASSASSIN’S CREED: LINEAGE is a stand-alone short film that takes place in the Assassin’s Creed universe. The film combines live-action and computer-generated imagery to explore the events that happen just before the narrative begins in the Assassin’s Creed II video game. Developed by Ubisoft’s Hybride Technologies, the cutting-edge special effects house behind feature films 300 and Sin City, LINEAGE is the first chapter of Ezio Auditore’s story and reveals the machinations of 15th-century Italy through the actions of Ezio’s father, the assassin Giovanni Auditore.

When the Duke of Milan is brutally murdered, Giovanni Auditore is dispatched to investigate. What he uncovers implicates Italy’s most powerful families reaching all the way back to the Vatican. 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.

ASSASSIN’S CREED: LINEAGE is directed by Yves Simoneau. The DVD includes over 90 minutes of bonus footage comprised of “Assassin’s Creed: Ascendance” animated short, “Making of: Lineage,” trailers, and developer diaries.
