Fox has released a new featurette for the Assassin’s Creed movie that explores the mythology of the Creed. Actually when we say “explores”, we actually mean “scratches the surface”. You wouldn’t want to sit an O-Level in Creed mythology using this as a revision aid. But if you’ve never encountered the games before it’s a decent enough basic primer.
Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender) experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organisation in the present day.
Assassin’s Creed is released in the UK on 1 January 2017.
