The idea of a movie prequel tie-in is a novel one, if not a very, very awesome idea. Adding to its appeal is the fact that Academy Award winners Herve de Crecy and Fracois Alaux have been tasked to direct the short, while the screenplay for the 25-minute film was written by Academy Award nominee Tim Sexton.
Giving us a glimpse into what to expect on Monday, May 14th, when the film debuts online, Ubisoft released a trailer for the Ghost Recon Alpha in recent days, which you can watch at the bottom of the page.
Per a previous release detailing the connection between th upcoming Ghost Recon Alpha prequel film and the game itself:
