Who knew that the D.I.C.E. Awards had such badass security? This Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences and Noodlehaus-produced Assassin’s Creed-tastic live-action trailer kicks off the promo campaign for the AIAS’ 16th Annual D.I.C.E. Awards, which take place in Las Vegas on February 7th.

If that concentrated dose of American Revolutionary awesomeness wasn’t enough for you, then the fact that our own Chris Hardwick will be hosting the award show, live-streamed by Machinima on February 7th at 7PM, should be the Piece of Eden and piece of mind you’re looking for. To prepare for the task, Chris has been training in the Animus, reliving the memories of his ancestors, a proud dynasty of awards show hosts, professional bowlers, and contract killers. Which deadly skill set will Chris have to employ? Tune in on February 7th to find out (hint: he’s always wearing hidden blades).
