Apologies if it's already been posted, but I came across the trailer and was wondering what everyone thought about it. After finishing the game, I'm definitely curious...

Hmm this looks interesting, haven't played Brotherhood yet though
 
Does this have any ties to the Assassin's Creed franchise?

Why is everyone posh british? I guess it's better it's better than having a stereotypical posh italien accent.

The Borgias are a goldmine of scandal and corruption, but I feel like I would want to gouge my eyes out watching this. The DRAMA...the MUSIC..uggghh. I read a biography of the actual Lucrezia Borgia (what a shitty life) and some of the things that happened related to her family are still unsolved. It's not like the papacy wasn't a joke when Rodrigo Borgia took over, but wow....unbelievable what they could get away with. Not just the pope, but all the ruling families. The world was so much more violent back then.

@pekoe212: Oh come on the world is not more or less violent then what it was or is. It's just that it was more public than what it is now, hangings in town squares are replaced with being gunned down on the vegas strip. We have the ability to kill others from a continent away, they had to do it up close and personal.

The Borgias premieres on April 3rd. I'm not expecting exact historical accuracy, but AC:B has gotten such a hold over me that I simply want to know more about the Borgias.
