The Assassin's Creed Experience Returns To San Diego Comic-Con!
Ubisoft has announced that it will bring back its Assassin's Creed Experience to Comic-Con International: San Diego this year! Attendees will not only be able to partake in this massive parkour obstacle course, but they can also enter the Dark Zone in Tom Clancy's The Division, dive into the action figures behind Toy Soldiers: War Chest,and see the latest from Ubi Workshop.
The Assassin's Creed Experience will present participants with bigger, badder, 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 the iconic 25-foot Leap of Faith and the overhead glider, which is new this year. Even better though, fans who preorder the game will receive The Rooks Initiation Kit, which includes everything needed to join Jacob and Evie Frye's gang on their quest to liberate London! And once you've conquered the Assassin's Creed Experience, head on over to the Schick Hydro Underground, located right next to the course, to receive a free, customized shave by a professional barber. The Assassinâ€™s Creed Experience will be held on the Martin Luther King Jr. Promenade at Harbor Drive and will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 9th through Saturday, July 11th and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, July 12th.

The Assassin's Creed Syndicate panel will take place on Friday, July 10th from 2-3 p.m. in Room 6BCF and will feature a behind-the-scenes look at what it means to be a Master Assassin. F.
