Ubisoft unveils Comic-Con International lineup
Ubisoft have confirmed their plans for the San Diego Comic-Con International, due to take place between July 20th-24th 2011.
At the event, the publisher will have the first public demos of both Just Dance 3 and Rabbids: Alive & Kicking, as well as a demonstration of Rayman Origins and hosting an exclusive panel for Assassin’s Creed Revelations. Ubisoft’s booth is to be located in the Exhibit Hall at #4245.
Rayman Origins fans will also be able to net themselves a free T-shirt by checking in on Facebook at the Rayman Origins billboard at 6th Avenue & F Street in the Gaslamp quarter, to then claim their prize at Ubisoft’s booth. Other prizes will also be given away at the booth including special pre-order discounts and incentives for Assassin’s Creed Revelations and Just Dance 3.
Further to this, Ubisoft is teaming with Break Media and NBC star Zachary Levi’s company The Nerd Machine to build out a “Nerd HQ” in downtown San Diego between July 21-24. Here, fans will gather to celebrate nerd culture and will have the chance to play Rayman Origins.
Finally, in Room 25ABC on Saturday 23rd July between 3-4pm the writers behind Assassin’s Creed Revelations will discuss and answer questions regarding the latest entry in the franchise during a panel entitled “Assassin’s Creed: The Creation of a Universe.”
The details for this are as follows:
The panel will explore how the Ubisoft Montreal development team has created the Assassin’s Creed universe, which weaves real world history and global conspiracies into an ancient war between Assassins and Templars across a variety of media. Attendees will be treated to a behind-the-scenes look at how Ezio’s final journey will unfold as he walks in the footsteps of his legendary mentor, Altair, on a perilous journey of doubt and discovery. Additionally, attendees will get to watch an exclusive preview of the animated short film Assassin’s Creed Embers. Panelists will include the creators of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Revelations game, animated short film and comic. Adam Sessler, host of G4TV’s X-Play, will moderate the panel.
