While we patiently await the August 2015 release of Assassin's Creed, a big screen adaptation of the popular video game starring Michael Fassbender, we have something else to tide us over. Musician and horror director Rob Zombie has created a new animated short for the upcoming release of Assassin's Creed: Unity, which helps set up the storyline of this latest entry in the video game series. The Walking Dead artist Tony Moore is responsible for the animation. You can watch the full short, as well as a behind-the-scenes video with Rob Zombie.

In the game, set amidst the chaos of 18th Century Paris, Arno, a young Master Assassin, will embark on an extraordinary journey to expose the true powers behind the French Revolution. His pursuit will throw him into the middle of a ruthless struggle for the fate of a nation and ultimately carve a new destiny for the people of France.

Assassin's Creed Unity will be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 28.
