Animated $2 short Assassin’s Creed: Ascendance detailed

Today, Ubisoft has revealed the details of the Assassin’s Creed: Ascendance project it teased just yesterday. As suspected, it’s a short animated film, and its release will coincide with the November 16 launch of the game, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood.

Ascendance is said to bridge the gap between Assassin’s Creed II and the upcoming Brotherhood, with Ezio Auditore in the lead role. The film will be available on Xbox Live Marketplace, PlayStation Network, and “other digital channels” for $1.99.
