You either go big or go home, and Ubisoft is resting firmly in the former for those heading to San Diego next week.
Ubisoft has a slew of big events slated for San Diego Comic-Con, and all of them sound like fun:
The Assassins’ Creed Experience:
The Assassin’s Creed Experience returns to San Diego Comic-Con for its second year with bigger and more challenging obstacles that will have players parkouring and soaring through Victorian-era London. Course attendees will receive instantly shareable action shots of them tackling two of the course’s obstacles, the overhead glider, new to this year’s course, and the iconic 25-foot Leap of Faith. Additionally, fans who pre-order the game will receive The Rooks Initiation Kit, which includes everything they need to join Jacob and Evie Frye’s gang on their quest to liberate London.
For those looking to further immerse themselves in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Assassin’s Creed is teaming up with Schick Hydro® for the third year in a row. At the Schick Hydro® Underground, located next to the course, fans can receive a free, customized shave by professional barbers using Schick Hydro 5, the only razor with a specially designed gel reservoir to help #ProtectYourNeck.
Fans still hoping to find a way to Comic-Con International: San Diego can enter to win a trip at AssassinsCreed.com/Rewards, and for those already attending, they can register to skip the line and go right to the front.
Grab your mates and come visit the Assassin’s Creed Experience on the Martin Luther King Jr. Promenade at Harbor Drive. The Assassin’s Creed Experience will be open 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. from Thursday, July 9 to Saturday July 11, and 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 12.
