The Assassin’s Creed Challenge will be coming to Metcalfe Park, Sydney, on October 5th and 6th. It will be a full sized course to test out anybody out there that wants to be a real life parkour competitor.
More information about the obstacle course can be seen in the info posted below from the press release. Aside from the obstacle course, there will be 16 pods at the event where you can play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on the Xbox One X.
“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.”
“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.”
