Starting next month, fans can shelve the Assassin’s Creed film with their Assassin’s Creed video games.

Starring Michael Fassbender as a convict on death row who learns he’s a descendant of a 15th-century Spanish warrior, the movie Assassin’s Creed debuts on digital HD platforms (such as iTunes and Amazon) March 10 and Blu-ray/DVD March 21.

Bonus features include a five-part documentary; a discussion with Fassbender, co-star Marion Cotillard and director Justin Kurzel about bringing the game to the screen; a bunch of extras focusing on the stunts, including Fassbender, Michael K. Williams and others learning the tricks of being Assassins; plus a look at the historical re-creation, photo galleries and deleted scenes.

USA TODAY has the exclusive debut of one of the deleted scenes, in which Fassbender’s Callum Lynch in present day — who’s learned the skills of his ancestor Aguilar and is ready to take on the modern Templars — is initiated with others as Assassins by reciting the creed. The group is surrounded by Assassins of old in the background, but bringing past and present together was ultimately nixed because “it was so convoluted and complicated,” says Kurzel. Plus, film editor Christopher Tellefson adds, “it didn’t have the energy we wanted it to have and what eventually came to be.”
