The Assassin’s Creed franchise has sold in excess of 70 million games worldwide.

“I’ve played it since mainly to get an idea of the physicality of the character,” said Fassbender, who admitted he had not played Assassin’s Creed before he took the part in the film. “We believe the whole concept around it is special and want to service that the best we can.

“The fans are really passionate: very specific and they expect accuracy and historical detail. We’re really trying to capitalize and feed on and enjoy the fun element.”
