Assassin's Creed: Ascendance explained

Toon fills gap between AC2 and Brotherhood.

Ubisoft has lifted the lid on the hitherto mysterious Assassin's Creed: Ascendance clip that appeared earlier this week.

It's a short animated film that will serve to bridge the gap between the events of Assassin's Creed 2 and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood.

Apparently it will follow Ezio Auditore "as he struggles to remove the treacherous Borgia family from their papal throne. Ezio will learn the brutal truth behind Ceasare Borgia's rise to power to control Italy."

You'll be able to download it from PlayStation Store, Xbox Live and "other digital channels" from 16th November – that's three days prior to the release of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Have a look at the teaser clip below for a better idea of what to expect.
