UPDATE: Latest official look at MICHAEL FASSBENDER and co-star ARIANE LABED in full costume!
Fassbender revealed to ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY that he never played the game before taking on the role: “I hadn’t played it before these guys approached me. I’ve played it since 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.”
