Assassin's Creed Obstacle Course Coming To Sydney
The Assassin's Creed Challenge is a parkour obstacle course that even features a "Leap of Faith" from seven meters up.
Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed obstacle course, the Assassin's Creed Challenge, is coming to Australia. Ubisoft Australia announced that the Challenge will be available for anyone to try at Metcalfe Park in Sydney on October 5 and 6.
Similar to the Assassin's Creed obstacle course that Ubisoft brings to North American events like Comic-Con, the Sydney course is described as a "full size parkour course with obstacles inspired by the moves of a master assassin..."
This obstacle course was designed to look like something out of ancient Greece, which is the setting for October's Assassin's Creed Odyssey. It has six stages, which replicate things you will do in the game such as climbing, swinging, and balancing on things.
As you might have guessed, the final section is the "Leap of Faith," where participants jump off a seven-meter platform to a safe landing zone below. Those who successfully complete the entire course will get a Spartan helmet inspired by the game.
Ubisoft partnered with Microsoft for this promotion, and there will be 16 Xbox One X game stations available at the event for people to play Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Ubisoft is giving away three Odyssey-themed Xbox One X consoles, one each people who upload the best photo, best video, and best cosplay to Instagram and tag it with #AssassinsCreedChallenge.
You can register for the free event here on Eventbrite. It runs from 10 AM to 5 PM on October 5 and 9 AM to 5 PM on October 6. There will also be food trucks.
Odyssey launches on October 5 for PS4 and Xbox One. It will also be available on Nintendo Switch, but only in Japan.
