Old Ezio is in Trouble in Animated Short Assassin’s Creed: Embers (TRAILER)
Ezio’s getting old. If you caught the E3 trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, you’ll start to see the gray in his beard. It hasn’t slowed down any of his ass-kicking prowess, but one has to figure he can’t keep going like this forever.
Enter Assassin’s Creed: Embers, which seems meant to be taken as the embers of a dying fire, a metaphor for the end of Ezio’s days. Embers is an animated AC short that’s shipping along with copies of Revelations, and if you check out the trailer below, you’ll hear Ezio narrating — which suggests that old-ass dude is him — and if you really pay attention, you’ll notice that sitting at a desk gives Ezio heart trouble, although he can still leap through windows with the best of them.
