Ubisoft Australia today announced the Assassin’s Creed Challenge will be set up in Metcalfe Park, Sydney on October 5-6. Participants will navigate through an ancient Greek-themed parkour course.
The event is to launch Assassin’s Creed Odyssey which hits retail shelves also on October 5. Participants will have the opportunity to partake in six different challenges and achieve similar stunts that they will perform in game. Each obstacle will have fans “running, climbing, swinging and balancing” their way through the ruins and statues of Ancient Greece’s myths and legends.
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. To enter, participants will need to upload their photo to Instagram with the hashtag #AssassinsCreedChallenge on October 5 and 6.
Those wanting to participate need to register via the official registration page here. The event will be open to the public on Friday, October 5, from 10 am – 5pm, and Saturday, October 6, from 9am – 5pm, and will also feature cosplay and food trucks.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey releases worldwide on October 5, 2018 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.
