Assassin's Creed: Embers hits November 15
A 20-minute animated short film will be free with GameStop preorder of Revelations, or available separately on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network.
On November 15, Assassin's Creed: Revelations will wrap up the story of Ezio after three games that have followed the Italian rapscallion since his birth. The game will have some help in bringing Ezio's tale to a close, as Ubisoft has announced it will arrive alongside Assassin's Creed: Embers, a 20-minute computer-animated short film that serves as a companion piece to Revelations.
Embers follows Ezio in his later years, living with his wife and children and the fear that, one day, someone will try to hurt them. The short uses assets taken directly from the game as part of a Ubisoft project to improve its asset pipeline for creating projects such as this.
The short film will be available as part of the Assassin's Creed: Revelations Signature Edition at GameStop. The Signature Edition also includes an extra multiplayer character, single-player mission, and soundtrack. Gamers who preorder Revelations from the retailer will receive a free upgrade to the Signature Edition.
Gamers who aren't interested in the Signature Edition will still be able to download Embers from Xbox Live or PlayStation Network for a price yet to be determined. For more on Assassin's Creed: Revelations, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
