Ubisoft is hosting a parkour obstacle course at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 to celebrate the upcoming release of Assassin’s Creed Unity.
San Diego Comic-Con goers can swing like Ezio and dive like Altair at Ubisoft’s parkour course that will be held right outside of the convention. Michael “Frosti” Zernow, Ubisoft’s first Chief Parkour Officer, organized the event along with Tempest Freerunning in order to create this obstacle course and make it utilize the Assassin’s Order’s most famous methods of transportation: climbing and jumping.
“I’ve been a long-time fan of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, and it’s one of the few highly visible examples of parkour that attracts younger athletes to the sport every year,” said Zernow.
The park specifically recreates the motions assassins have done in the past, even swinging from a pole onto a ledge. Zernow claims that it will be overseen by safety workers and nearly anyone can do it, but he obviously hasn’t spent much time around comic book conventions. Nevertheless, keep an eye out for this course outside of SDCC 2014 right in front of the San Diego Convention Center.
