Last year, Ubisoft had an immense presence at San Diego Comic-Con, not only bringing a huge pirate ship filled with party people, but also a bunch of games for good measure. This year's showcase is no exception, as the publisher has promised to bring plenty of excitement this year…including an obstacle course!
Assassin's Creed: Unity will take center stage with a "massive parkour obstacle course", according to the company, that includes rolling, vaulting and a 25-foot "leap of faith" drop. Fans who partake in the challenge can net an exclusive t-shirt out of the proceedings, although anyone can stop by and give the playable Unity demo a shot. No parkour required. You can find the station over at the Martin Luther King Jr. Promenade during the show.
In addition, the multiplayer racing game The Crew will be on hand at Ubisoft's Comic-Con booth, with plenty of racing action in store, and Just Dance 2015 will have people hot-stepping over at Nintendo's Gaming Lounge, located at the San Diego Marriott Marquis and Marina.
Finally, a pair of panels will inform gamers about upcoming Ubisoft projects. An Assassin's Creed: Unity panel will take place on Friday, July 25th, from 2:00-3:00 PM, hosted by Aisha Tyler. The panel will go into detail about the game, and also debut an animated short based on Unity from Rob Zombie and The Walking Dead artist Tony Moore. In addition, a Far Cry 4 panel will delve into the game's development, taking place a day earlier, from 3:15-4:15 PM on Thursday.
Dig in, kids. We'd take on the parkour course but, oh, man, my knees. Ouch.
