Following the launch of Abstergo website, Entertainment Weekly has released a new image from Justin Kurzel’s highly anticipated Assassin’s Creed adaptation, featuring Michael Fassbender as Callum Lynch and Ariane Labed’s mystery character.

With the publicity of the film seeming to be ramping up now, we’re expecting a teaser trailer in the next few weeks. Here’s the first official image from the movie:

Speaking to EW, via Squareeyed, Fassbender revealed that he had never played the video games prior to being cast in the movie, but he’s now a fan of the franchise since he had to play them in order to prepare for his role.

Here’s what he had to say: “I’ve played it since [being offered the job] mainly to get an idea of the physicality of the character, we’re striving to find something special. 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. We’re working hard to make this something special.”
