What The Hell Is Going On In This Leaked Assassin's Creed Video?

Between the old-school Animus interface and the Ubisoft Digital Arts watermark, I'm positive this video is leaked footage of something Assassin's Creed related, but what?

I have no clue. It could be a cut scene from Assassin's Creed: Revelations, or perhaps a clip from the Assassin's Creed: Embers animated short that will come packed with the Revelations collector's and Animus editions. Whatever is going on here, it looks both sinister and painful.

While I thank reader Josh for passing the clip along (Thanks Josh!), you folks can occupy yourselves theorising over what it all means.

Update: As readers have pointed out, the audio is taken from the 1990 film Jacob's Ladder. Check out the video below, starting at about the two-minute mark. An animation test then?


    I think the most logical answer is an animation test but it could still have some relevance, perhaps the guy on the table is subject 16 or one of the first test subjects for the animus?

      Bam, I got the exact same idea as you.

      It's a much more grittier and physically brutal style that we haven't really seen from Abstergo yet.

      Very exciting.

    Jacob's Ladder is Epic.

    I'm just going to throw a couple of ideas out here , The sequence pretty much depicts a scene from the film Jacobs Ladder where the main character is under the influence of 3-Quinuclidinyl benzilate , which causes such effects include stupor, confusion, and confabulation with concrete and panoramic illusions and hallucinations.

    The version of the Animus used is Version 1 and the DOB of the subject in the Animus is 4/12/1978 , could this person have been a child from someone involved in the Jonestown massacre?

    Then again it could just be a animation test
