What is Assassin's Creed: Ascendance?

UbiWorkshop working on mysterious toon.

Ubisoft has shown off another new strand of its ever-expanding Assassin's Creed franchise.

A brief animated trailer for something called Assassin's Creed: Ascendance has appeared on UbiWorkshop's website – a subsidiary responsible for short films, comics and art books based on Ubisoft properties.

It's only a few seconds long and shows a familiar cloaked figure running along some rooftops in the rain.

No doubt we'll find out more soon, but in the meantime you can check out the teaser clip below.

The next actual videogame in the series, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, arrives on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on 19th November, with a PC release to follow in due course.
