Ubisoft are using short movies with the highest standard to hype up the market before the game releases next month I guess they are using the same tactic from Halo: ODST where they also had a release of a short movie depicting a scene of the overall process of being an ODST.
[It’s best if you load in HD & in full screen viewing]
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.
The 15 minutes of the shorts are very well edited from blending real life scene and with CG together to deliver a punch straight up to the fans. I must say the presentation of how everything happen from his father to him will be interesting for the shorts to come as they are releasing another until the game releases.
