An Assassin’s Creed refresher course

Forgotten what happened in those other Assassin’s Creed games? Well, as Revelations gets its release this week, Ubisoft has released a video to help jog your memory about the various plot points and characters in the series.

The game is released this week for Xbox 360 and PS3. PC users will have to wait a few weeks more.
