We can hardly wait to see Michael Fassbender play the title character in the screen adaptation of Ubisoft's "Assassin's Creed," but until then, this new film, sponsored by Ubisoft to promote the franchise's upcoming title, "Assassin's Creed Unity," helps to tide us over.

The videogame publisher tapped YouTube filmmaker Devin Supertramp to bring the title to life in the real world with the help of some real-world parkour artists. In the game, players take the role of a master Assassin during the French Revolution, and this time, they can play alongside friends in 4-person co-op missions.

The video here illustrates the killer tag-team dynamic by sending a cast of costumed players onto the modern-day streets of France, centuries after the game takes place. The stunts, of course, aren't as superhuman as they are in the game, but impressive nonetheless. And too bad real life doesn't have such a dramatic soundtrack.

See how the film was made in the Behind the Scenes video.
