In a bit of an unexpected pairing, Rob Zombie has teamed up with Ubisoft and their Assassin’s Creed franchise to help promote the upcoming game in the series, Assassin’s Creed Unity.
Zombie, along with The Walking Dead co-creator Tony Moore, created an animated short motion comic that sets up the French Revolution setting of the game. It’s a well done short, and every bit as brutally violent and bloody as you would expect something made by Zombie to be!
You can check out the video below, as well as a second video of Zombie talking about the project.
