With so much happening this past weekend at Comic Con, things were going to slip through the cracks. Ubisoft released a new short animated prequel to their upcoming Assassin's Creed Unity that helps set the cake-filled table for the game world.

The 5 minute animated movie is written and directed by rock icon and horror director Rob Zombie and illustrated by Tony Moore, who co-created The Walking Dead. It gives a succinct, very violent retelling of the events of the French Revolution, the storming of the Bastille, the execution of King Louis XVI and the bloody Reign of Terror overseen by Robespierre.

All of that is the history we know. It is what they want to tell us, but the real truth? That my friend you can find in Assassin's Creed Unity.

History as we know it is told through the great paintings and stories that survived. Needless to say, I never saw an 18th century master use quite so much evisceration, blood and beheadings in his paintings. As odd as it may sound, Rob Zombie's vision of the French Revolution and subsequent horror may be the most accurate accounting of the violence inflicted upon the populace before the Napoleonic Wars.

Additionally, Ubisoft released a video taking you behind the scenes of the making of the short film. The mini-doc features interviews with all the crew and the sonorous voice over artist Feodor Atkine, who leads us through our 5 minute jaunt to less democratic times.

Check out the bloody little short film below! Assassin's Creed Unity hits stores at the end of Broketober, October 28.
