Ubisoft today announced its plans for Comic-Con San Diego.
Ubisoft today announced its plans for Comic-Con San Diego on July 20–24, 2011 will include the first public demos of Just Dance 3 and Rabbids: Alive & Kicking. In addition, Ubisoft will demo Rayman Origins, and host an exclusive panel for Assassin’s Creed Revelations on July 23, 2011.
Located in the Exhibit Hall at #4245, Ubisoft’s booth will feature a special stage for players to try out Just Dance 3, which will be available on all platforms this fall, and Rabbids: Alive & Kicking, a collection of mini games.
Booth visitors also will have an opportunity to play Rayman Origins for the first time before the game’s release later this year. Rayman Origins is a high-definition 2-D side-scrolling platforming adventure featuring full 4-player co-op. Additionally, Rayman Origins fans can win a free T-shirt by checking in on Facebook at the Rayman Origins billboard at 6th Avenue & F Street, in the Gaslamp quarter, and then claim their prize at Ubisoft’s booth. Other prizes will be given away at the booth, including special pre-order discounts and incentives on the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Revelations and Just Dance 3 releases.
In addition to Ubisoft’s booth, 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, from July 21-24. At the “Nerd HQ,” fans will gather to celebrate nerd culture and will have the chance to play Rayman Origins.
Finally, on Saturday, July 23, from 3–4 p.m. in Room 25ABC, the writers behind Assassin’s Creed Revelations will discuss and answer questions about the fourth installment in the franchise during the “Assassin’s Creed: The Creation of a Universe” panel. 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.
