THE ASSASSIN’S CREED® CHALLENGE COMES TO SYDNEY ON OCTOBER 5 & 6
Unleash your inner Spartan on the first ever Assassin’s Creed obstacle course in Australia!
Sydney, Australia — September 17, 2018 — Today, Ubisoft Australia announced that the Assassin’s Creed® Challenge will come to Metcalfe Park, Sydney, on October 5th and 6th. The Assassin’s Creed Challenge will be a full size parkour course with obstacles inspired by the moves of a master assassin and the release of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on October 5.
Designed to replicate the Ancient Greek setting of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, participants will have the opportunity to partake in six different challenges and achieve similar stunts that they will perform in game. Each daring obstacle will have fans running, climbing, swinging and balancing their way through the ruins and statues of Ancient Greece’s myths and legends.
The final obstacle will be one of Assassin’s Creed most iconic moves, the ‘Leap of Faith’, off a seven-metre platform. Each contestant who completes the course will also receive a limited edition Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Spartan Helmet.
Fans will also be able to play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on Microsoft Xbox One X consoles in a dedicated gaming area with 16 available pods.
“An Assassin’s Creed Obstacle course has been one of the most sought after requests by not only the Assassin’s Creed Community, but all Australian gamers,” said Edward Fong, Managing Director at Ubisoft Australia.
“We are extremely excited to be bringing the concept to life to celebrate the launch of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on October 5.”
Attendees will also have the chance to win one of three custom Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Xbox One X Consoles. One custom console will be available for each of the following competition categories: Best Photo, Best Video and Best Cosplay.
